Cook Participates in Irwin, Jr. Foundation Benefit

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (March 4, 2002) - Terry Cook teamed with Dickie Gaines and Bobby East to compete in the Thunder At Johansson's, a three-hour go kart enduro organized by the USAC Benevolent Foundation to benefit the Kenny Irwin, Jr. Memorial Foundation Saturday, March 2.

"We had a lot of fun and it was for a good cause," said Cook, who drives the No. 29 Power Stroke Diesel Ford in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series competition this season. "This event was created to assist underprivileged children. The Irwin's are opening a camp just outside of Indianapolis on 33-acres of land for that very reason. The karting event was to generate money to assist with the project."

"Ten teams were entered and we were all glad to be a part of something very special," Cook continued. "It's a great feeling to be able to devote time to community projects. I enjoy that kind of stuff and later this year, I'll be visiting schools around the country at select NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races to deliver positive messages to kids of all ages. It'll be very interactive - we'll have the Power Stroke Diesel Ford show truck at the school and the programs will have a racing video presentation and prizes for the kids. It will be fun and informative for everyone."

Cook and the No. 29 Power Stroke Diesel Ford will return to NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series action in the Craftsman Anniversary 200 Friday, March 15 at Darlington (SC) Raceway. The event will be broadcast live on MRN Radio at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and will be telecast on a tape-delayed basis by ESPN2 Saturday, March 16 at 6 p.m.
