NASCAR is for pet lovers


59CarwLogo2small.jpgSo I’m a NASCAR fan. If it’s got to do with NASCAR, I’m into it. And what’s really cool is there are a lot of NASCAR people who are really into pet rescue and adoption. So I’ll pop in here once in a while to keep you up to date on the happenings of the NASCAR world as it relates to pet adoption — with maybe a little race commentary tossed in here and there. 😉

The first person I want to call out is team owner Jodi Geschickter. Along with her husband Todd, Jodi owns JTG Racing. That’s the 59 car of Marcos Ambrose and the 47 car of Kelly Bires. They run in the Nationwide series and Jodi has been kind enough to put the Petfinder logo on those cars (and on a CTS truck) on more than one occasion so millions of NASCAR fans can see Petfinder running around the track. Jodi is passionate about pet rescue and volunteers with the Charlotte, NC-based Animal Adoption League.

Marcos and Kelly were also nice enough to come visit the Petfinder tent
at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year and sign some autographs for
fans. Our tent at TMS was our first foray into the NASCAR world and we
hope to make it a regular thing. More on that event in another post.
I’d love to hear from other NASCAR fans, so speak up!
