Drive For Diversity Program Seeks Drivers For 2008 Season
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Drive for Diversity program is accepting applications from experienced drivers for the 2008 season. This will mark the fifth season for NASCAR’s leading driver development program, which provides opportunities for minority and female drivers to compete with established NASCAR teams.
Interested minority and female drivers are invited to submit their applications to Access Marketing & Communications through August 17, 2007. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a Testing and Evaluation Combine this Fall, hosted by Access Marketing & Communications.
Drivers will have the opportunity to showcase their skills before established NASCAR team owners in an effort to earn an opportunity to compete in the Drive for Diversity program for the 2008 season. Drivers who have demonstrated their skill and have experience in grassroots racing will be considered.
“We are thrilled to have the Drive for Diversity program entering its fifth season with the support of NASCAR,” said Greg Calhoun, president and CEO of Access Marketing & Communications. “We are pleased to continue our work with the NASCAR industry and look forward to seeing another exceptional class of candidates at our fifth Testing and Evaluation Combine.”
The Drive for Diversity program is in its fourth season and is NASCAR’s leading on-track diversity initiative. This season four drivers compete in the NASCAR Grand National Division – two in the Busch East Series and two in the West Series – and three drivers compete in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.
Interested drivers should send resumes, highlight videos, on-track photos, race results, references and other supporting materials to: Drive for Diversity Competition Committee, 401 N. Tryon St, 10th Floor, Charlotte, N.C. 28202.
