Rx.com G&W Motorsports Hosts Honorary Pit Crew Members for Good Cause
ALTON, Va. (October 2, 2004) -- Rx.com G&W Motorsports will have some help in the pits during this weekend's VIR 400 presented by SunTrust, with two honorary pit crew members who are lending a hand for a good cause.
Earlier this year, Rx.com G&W Motorsports donated to the Full Potential Motorsports Foundation charity auction the opportunity to join the team for this weekend's VIR 400. Dan LaBerge, of Arlington, Va., was the top bidder for the prize and will join Rx.com G&W Motorsports, with his guest Venus Ballinger, during this weekend's event.
As part of the behind-the-scenes racing experience, LaBerge and Ballinger will get full-access credentials, the opportunity to eat meals with the crew the drivers, attend driver meetings and, not only be in the pits during the race, but also play an active role in helping the team with the No. 81 Rx.com BMW Doran JE4 of Cort Wagner and Brent Martini.
