MacDonald Motorsports press release
CHARLOTTE, NC (Oct. 12, 2011) Crusader Staffing will present the Think Pink car for breast cancer awareness this Friday night for the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Driver Reed Sorenson will again be behind the wheel of the No. 82 Dodge for MacDonald Motorsports.
Sorenson joined the team last week after his sudden release from Turner Motorsports. In his first stint behind the wheel, Sorenson, currently third in the Nationwide Series points standings, finished the race in 26th place.
“I’m looking forward to this weekend, it’s always exciting to run in Charlotte, our home track, and it means a lot to do well here. Our first goal is to qualify in and realistically finish in the top 20,” said Sorenson. “I’m grateful for the support of MacDonald Motorsports and Crusader Staffing for giving me this opportunity, and I can’t wait to get out there on the track.”
Randy MacDonald, owner of MacDonald Motorsports, with strong support from Dell Hamilton and Crusader Staffing worked diligently to get more horsepower for Sorenson this week. MacDonald Motorsports, typically one of the lower funded teams in the series, made strides to set Sorenson up for success, in hopes of him keeping and possibly improving his third place standing.
“We’re excited to be on the car again this week as the presenting sponsor, and honored to have Zeta Tau Alpha and the Think Pink campaign on board to bring awareness to the issue of breast cancer,” Hamilton said.
