Click n' CloseTM, the "Official Mortgage Provider of NASCAR®" and Richard Petty Motorsports, in partnership with the Motor Racing Network (MRN) and the Performance Racing Network (PRN), announced today a joint partnership with Victory Junction, establishing the "Fastest Lap" Award at the completion of each Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race in 2018 on both radio networks.
For the fastest lap in each race, Click n' Close will make a donation to Victory Junction, a medically-safe camping facility that provides a life-changing experience for children, ages six to 16, with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses, at the conclusion of each race that corresponds with the fastest lap of the race in speed. MRN and PRN will then match that donation after each race.
In addition, to celebrate its partnership with driver Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. and Richard Petty Motorsports, Click n' Close is introducing the "Double Bubba" bonus. If Wallace and the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team turns the fastest lap during a 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, Click n' Close, MRN and PRN will double its donation to Victory Junction for that event.
"Click n' Close is thrilled and honored to support Victory Junction this season," said Wayne Arute, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, Click n' Close. "Their mission is an impactful one and means a great deal to the NASCAR community, which has welcomed our Click n' Close brand with open arms. We look forward to building our relationship with Victory Junction, starting this weekend."
NASCAR fans are also challenged to join Click n' Close to give back to Victory Junction by going to ClicknClose.com/NASCAR and make a donation of $43 or more to the camp. For every donation of $43 or more, Click n' Close will donate a NASCAR officially-licensed Lionel Racing 1:64 Bubba Wallace Click n' Close Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 die-cast car to the children who attend Victory Junction.
"We are thankful to have Click n' Close, the Motor Racing Network and the Performance Racing Network support Victory Junction this race season," said Chad Coltrane, Chief Executive Officer, Victory Junction. "We've seen Click n' Close get involved with Richard Petty Motorsports, NASCAR, our media partners, and now camp. They have shown their commitment to the sport, and we couldn't be more thrilled they chose to support Victory Junction during each race season with this special award. We also want to thank MRN and PRN for their commitment to this program, too."
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season begins this Sunday with the Daytona 500 at the Daytona International Speedway, Sunday, February 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
