TEAM SLR (Scott Lagasse Racing) announces a long term partnership between HybridLight Company, Boy Scouts Of America & Team SLR. The trio will market together through an auto racing platform which will provide unique opportunities for all.
“We are truly excited and blessed to have the opportunity to represent these two quality groups”, say’s Scott Lagasse Jr, Driver for the HybridLight, BSA Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. “I can’t imagine a more natural fit or a better message to be involved with. HybridLight has patented products that utilize Solar & LED technology with back up power. Not only will it be the last flashlight you ever buy but it is green technology and will drastically reduce the need for current batteries and disposal into our landfills. The really neat part is that I get to interact with Scouts and even go camping which is one of my favorite ways to relax and enjoy our wonderful planet.”
TEAM SLR will launch the BSA / HybridLight NASCAR Program September 22 at Kentucky Speedway. We will be racing a minimum of 15 races in 2013 with the full schedule for 2014 & 2015. This season we will compete in 3 races just to get our feet wet and begin polishing our promotional activation with BSA & HybridLight.”
The following is the news release by the Boy Scouts of America:
As the BSA continues to articulate our movement in more relevant and meaningful terms to the American public, we’re proud to announce our entry into the exciting, fast-paced sport of NASCAR. This high profile platform will allow the BSA to take the lead on defining who we are, continue our efforts of promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to those involved in Scouting, and directly support Scouting’s Journey to Excellence.
The national council is proud to announce a multi-year relationship with Scott Lagasse, owner of Team SLR. Scott’s team has secured a multi-year primary sponsorship with Peterson Industries, home of the Hybrid Light product line – solar flashlights that are always ready to work without a concern for dead batteries. With Hybrid Light as the primary sponsor and the BSA as the associate sponsor, Team SLR is gearing up for a successful run in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series. In preparation for a competitive 2013 season, Team SLR will be running the Hybrid Light/BSA car in three races this year: 1) Kentucky 300 – Sparta, KY, 2) Kansas Lottery 300 – Kansas City, KS, and 3) Ford EcoBoost 300 – Homestead, FL.
Scouting has worked for more than a century to become part of the solutions that move our country forward; however, we realize we can’t do it alone. We are simply a piece of a very complex and broad reaching puzzle. Organizations like Team SLR of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and Hybrid Light, embrace their role in this great pursuit. With this understanding, our goal is to continue to position Scouting as a valued partner to community organizations, corporate champions, and sporting leagues, all seeking to do their part in cultivating our greatest American asset, our youth.
There aren’t many better platforms to broadcast the Scouting message than through NASCAR, so please be on the lookout for more information about this exciting relationship with Scott Lagasse and Team SLR.
