S&H Motorsports, Tim Horton Children's Foundation Looking Forward To Kentucky Again
SPARTA, Ky (Monday, July 3, 2006) - - The ARCA RE/MAX Series returns to Kentucky Speedway this weekend with S&H Motorsports planning to arrive as a serious sleeper for this Friday's WLWT Channel 5-150.
For the third time this season, S&H Motorsports hood will adorn the Tim Horton Children's Foundation colors.
"We received a lot of good exposure the last time we were here and we're looking for more of that this weekend," explained Bixman. "With this being a hometown event for the charity, a good run on Friday would help with some additional exposure and that's a piece to our puzzle."
The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is dedicated to fostering within children the quest for a brighter future and that means a lot to Bixman, a father of three. "The Children's Foundation provides the children with a way of making sure their future is bright and successful and that's what we need today. These children are our future and the organization is doing everything in their power to make them the leaders of the future, it's very powerful."
The foundation has five impressive camps in Canada, however in 2001 Tim Horton's expanded its efforts and goals by opening their first camp in the United States. Tim Horton Camp Kentahten, Campbellsville occupies 50 acres of waterfront property on Green River Lake, in the heart of Kentucky, just 120 miles from Kentucky Speedway.
With the above being said, giving back is nothing new to S&H Motorsports and the team will step it up a notch in 2006 by donating 50% of their race winnings from this weekend's race to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "This is a small token to show how much we believe and support the foundation," explained Bixman. "We feel that by donating the winnings from our races it will allow more children to attend the camps, it's not a hard decision."

Another reason it could be a big weekend for S&H Motorsports and the Tim Horton Children's Foundation is the team will carry an in-car camera for Friday's event. Once the green flag drops, it will mark the first time Bixman has carried an in-car camera in his ARCA career.
"I think this is another reason why everyone is looking forward to Kentucky," mentioned Bixman. "The in-car camera is one of the most powerful marketing tools available to us in ARCA and we plan to use that to our advantage. With tens of thousands of viewers watching the live event, they will experience the joy and importance of the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. It's a massive opportunity for S&H Motorsports to show our true commitment to the foundation."
