AJ Allmendinger to Represent Best Buy Racing In "Minnesota Motorsports Gives Back" at Elko Speedway

July 8th race for charity featuring Best Buy Racing's AJ Allmendinger and a host of NASCAR drivers representing Minnesota-based companies

Richfield, MN (25 June, 2010)- With some of the most active and vocal supporters you can find, Best Buy Racing wants to give something back to the fans and celebrate its involvement in racing.

And what better way to give back than to throw a party, stage a race with NASCAR talents behind the wheel, and raise some money for several good causes?

Best Buy, which is based in Richfield, Minnesota, will partner with several Minnesota-based companies for an unforgettable day of racing and fun on July 8, at Elko Speedway for the first-ever "Minnesota Motorsports Gives Back" day at the races. Elko Speedway, the premier NASCAR facility in Minnesota, is located a half-hour south of downtown Minneapolis.

AJ Allmendinger, who besides his day job in the No. 43 Insignia/Best Buy Ford Fusion for Richard Petty Motorsports, has been getting a lot of extra racing in this season and will have another exciting date on his calendar to look forward to as he has signed on to drive in the "Minnesota Motorsports Gives Back" event. He'll have some stout competition, as the field for the 20-lap feature race will also include Greg Biffle (3M), Clint Bowyer (General Mills), and Jason Leffler (Great Clips).

All revenue from this event benefits a group of charities: Minnesota Returning Veterans Fund, Victory Junction Gang for Terminally Ill Children, Greg Biffle Foundation for Animals, and the Clint Bowyer Foundation.

"This is pretty typical Best Buy--they are an amazing group of people," said AJ. "So for them to be a part of something like this, giving back to the fans and staging a good time for everyone, doesn't really surprise me at all and I'm excited to be a part of it. I think it's going to be a blast. I've been to the Best Buy campus, and I'm looking forward to meeting more Best Buy fans and employees in Minnesota when we go back in July. Then, I'm looking forward to winning this race!"
