SAMMY SANDERS TO DRIVE NO. 04 CAMP COURAGEOUS DODGE AT NASHVILLE
Mt. Juliet, Tenn. - (August 1, 2006) Bobby Hamilton Racing (BHR) announced today a partnership with Camp Courageous, a camp for critically ill children located in Scottsville, Kentucky, for two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events. The 2005 Music City Motorplex All American Late Model Challenge Series Champion Sammy Sanders will drive the No. 04 Camp Courageous Dodge at Nashville Superspeedway on August 12th and at a later to be determined date this season.
"I am really looking forward to this first event in the No. 04 Camp Courageous Dodge in Nashville," said Sanders, who has over 90 Late Model wins to his record. "It is my home track and I have a lot of local fans that will come out and support me. Our goal is to build awareness for Camp Courageous and help people learn what a great camp it will be for kids. Being from Bowling Green the camp hits close to my heart and I am excited to get behind the wheel again and help promote a great cause."
The camp was founded by Ms. Betty Campbell, the daughter of the late Cal Turner, Sr. who founded the Dollar General Corporation. The world class medical camping facility is located in her hometown of Scottsville, Kentucky. It sits just 24 miles southeast of Bowling Green, KY, and 65 miles northeast of Nashville, Tenn. The camp will welcome children from across the region battling illnesses including cancer, kidney disease, heart disease, severe asthma, children on ventilators, spina bifida and many others.
"Sammy and I met with Ms. Campbell and she told us all about Camp Courageous," said Bobby Hamilton, 2004 NCTS Champion. "It is a great cause for us locally. Sammy has driven for us in the past and I am glad we have this chance to put him behind the wheel again and for such a great cause."
Camp Courageous is on target to welcome its first campers early in 2008. The $20 million campus is buzzing with sounds of construction, and eagerly anticipating the sounds of happy children. When open, the facility will welcome over 4,000 ill children and family members annually, all at no cost to the family. Visit www.courageouskids.org for more information on how you can help.
