[NASHVILLE, TN] Through Aventis Behring's Victory Lane Kids program, Nashville resident Shawn Caplinger will have the race fan's chance of a lifetime...he will be able to experience the thrill of NASCAR racing from the fast-paced pit of the #90 ABChoice Chevy Silverado this weekend at the new Nashville Speedway.

Driver Lance Norick says: "It makes me feel great to be able to give something to my community and through the Victory Lane Kids program, I get the chance to do so in just about every city I race. It makes me feel like I am doing more than just racing. I am getting to give back to the fans who make it all possible."

Wednesday, August 8th from 8:30AM to 11AM Norick will visit with patients at Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt on Wednesday on behalf of his Victory Lane Kids program.

Friday, August 10th from 4-7PM Shawn may be down in the pit with Norick's crew on Friday night, but he will not be the only "Victory Lane Kid" at the race. 250 guests of Aventis Behring will be in the stands, cheering for their driver Lance Norick and his #90 ABChoice Chevrolet.

In addition tickets to the race, Aventis Behring provides each of their guests with dinner, fantastic gifts (including t-shirts, hats and large die-cast collectibles of the #90!) and guests will also have a chance to meet Norick and get his autograph at the hospitality chalet before the race.
