NASCAR Celebrities To Be "Locked Up" For 2010 Official Jail & Bail

Country Music Icon The Charlie Daniels Band To Headline Oct. 12 Event Proceeds To Benefit The Brienne Davis Scholarship Fund

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 15, 2010) -- The third official Jail & Bail charity event supported by Best Buy and Insignia is set for Tuesday, Oct. 12 at Brickhouse Tavern in Davidson, N.C. Money raised throughout the night will go to the Brienne Davis Scholarship Fund, which to date has raised enough money to fund 20 scholarships to the Universal Technical Institute to help female students pursue a career in the automotive industry. Grammy Award winning artist The Charlie Daniels Band will headline the entertainment for the event, which will be open to the public. Daniels, a native of North Carolina, was inducted into the Musician's Hall of Fame in Nashville in 2009 and has performed at numerous NASCAR events over the years. Recording artist and hit songwriter Bridgette Tatum will also perform starting at 5:30 p.m.

NASCAR celebrities will have their day in court when they get "locked up" and they will have to raise their bail in an effort to raise funds for the scholarship program. Fans from all over the country will convene at the Brickhouse Tavern for a chance to rub elbows with some of the sport's top names and raise money for one of the industry's most popular charities. Davis, a Universal Technical Institute (UTI) graduate and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series official, died tragically in 2008 at age 28, and is honored by this scholarship created to encourage women to seek a career in the automotive industry. The Brienne Davis Scholarship Fund is intended to provide an opportunity for qualified female students who wish to attend one of nine Universal Technical Institute campuses across the U.S. including UTI's NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, N.C.

Tickets for the event are on sale now for $20 at the Brickhouse Tavern in Davidson, N.C., and NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, N.C. Tickets will also be sold at the gate the night of the event but capacity is limited so buying tickets in advance is strongly suggested.
