HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 31, 1998)
The lineup for the inaugural "NASCAR/PBA Bowling Night" has been set, and a collection of some of the biggest stars from the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the Professional Bowlers Association will be on hand to benefit the American Cancer Society on Thursday night at the Homestead Bowling Center.
The event features driver Terry Cook, whose No. 88 Chevrolet is sponsored by the PBA and whose SealMaster Racing Team organized the charity event. Cook will be joined by fellow series stars Ron Hornaday, Joe Ruttman, Mike Wallace, Rick Carelli, Boris Said, Jay Sauter, Tony Raines, Brian Reffner, Greg Biffle, Wayne Anderson, Tony Roper , Rick Crawford and Andy Houston, among others.
PBA professionals expected include Sammy Zurich, John Mazza and Steve Hoskins, as well as members of the Track pro staff and PBA officials Bobby Dinkins and Chris Bame.
Several NASCAR officials will participate, including Vice President for Administration Dennis Huth, Director of Communications Worldwide John Griffin, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Director Wayne Auton and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Media Coordinator Owen Kearns.
"It's great to bring together my sport and my sponsor," Cook said. "I just received one of the prototype 'Terry Cook' signature series No. 88 PBA Racing bowling balls by Track to use at this event. Now when I say I have my own bowling ball, I really mean I have my own bowling ball. It might make even me bowl better. It's a nice ball and I can't wait to try it out.
"I expect this to be a great weekend. The charity function will be a lot of fun, and I think it will just be a great prelude to a fantastic weekend of racing. We have very high expectations for our racing performance at the Homestead event. We were very fast in testing here a month ago."
In addition to the bowling tournament with local bowlers, a silent auction will be held to further raise money for the American Cancer Society.
