Earlier today, officials from Hickory, North Carolina-based ZLOOP™ announced their plans surrounding their extended involvement with Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway for the 2013 Motorsports season.
In addition to renewing their partnership as an official track sponsor of the 0.363-mile oval, officials from ZLOOP™ also announced the setup of the Big “10” ZLOOP™ Challenge, a championship within a championship for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) division. Ten (10) races, combined with 100 laps of competition each and an increased racing purse, will fuel the fire towards the champion being crowned the inaugural winner of the ZLOOP™ Challenge. The championship trophy will be crafted out of recycled eWaste.
Additionally, points accumulated during the ZLOOP™Challenge will be tallied against the competitor’s standings in the overall Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway track championship in the NASCAR Whelen-All American Series, encouraging teams to partake in the newly-established “Challenge.”
ZLOOP™ Computer and Electronics Recycling Centers (ZLOOP) makes eWaste recycling easy. Encouraging the public to recycle old computers, cell phones, printers, electronic devices and phone systems, ZLOOP™ is the only national eWaste franchise that guarantees disposal of eWaste safely and securely.
“The addition of the ZLOOP™ Challenge is a way of signifying our devotion, presence and support to our local track and its competitors,” said Chris Knight, Director of Sports Marketing for ZLOOP™. “We wanted to bring some extra incentives to the track for not only the fans but the drivers and teams as well. We feel that the ZLOOP™ Challenge fits that mark perfectly. We look forward to its success next season and beyond.”
Hickory Motor Speedway General Manager Kevin Piercy stated, “We are excited to partner up with ZLOOP™; their commitment to recycle these products will be a great step for the environment, and this Big "10" ZLOOP™ Challenge will provide much-needed resources for our competitors to be able to race each event. Also, the Challenge will create excitement for competitors and fans alike each and every week.
The first race of the ZLOOP™ Challenge is tentatively set to kick-off in March 2013 with the championship set to be decided in September with a guaranteed gigantic celebration that includes a spectacular fireworks show.
