Petfinder-friendly NASCAR team heads for the big time

You may remember that in an earlier post I mentioned Jodi Geschickter and JTG Racing. In addition to co-owning this team, Jodi volunteers for the Animal Adoption League in Charlotte, NC.

Well up until now, JTG Racing has only fielded entries in the Nationwide and Craftsman Truck series, two “lower” levels of NASCAR racing. This weekend, JTG is trying for the big time — the NASCAR Sprint Cup (formerly Winston Cup, formerly Nextel Cup) Series!

This is a big, bold move and their driver, Marcos Ambrose (right, with his foster dog Max, who’s since been adopted), will need to qualify to get in the race.

Animal lovers, cross your fingers for Marcos. He generously
donated his time and autographs to us when we were at the race in Texas
earlier this year and has also fostered dogs for Jodi (and even taken them
through the Starbuck’s drivethrough for treats!)

Marcos will be driving the 147 Little Debbie Ford. Qualifying is 10 a.m. EST on Saturday on ESPN. GO MARCOS!
