The race was sponsored by
Feed The Children and through this partnership with Speedway Children's
Charities, Feed The Children will deliver 500,000 pounds of food and supplies
to families in racing communities across the country.

The Monday following the
race July 1, Harrison Rhodes, Rick Ware and other members of the race team
brought the #23 car to Vecoplan's headquarters in High Point, N.C. The car was
unloaded into one of Vecoplan's manufacturing bays and Vecoplan employees were
given the opportunity to see the car, meet and interact with Harrison and Rick,
have their pictures taken with the car and crew, and get autographs. After a
question and answer session, Harrison and the other members of Rick Ware racing
toured Vecoplan's test lab, engineering departments, manufacturing plant, parts
and service departments, and offices.

As an engineering major at N.C.
State University, Harrison took interest in Vecoplan's two engineering
departments, Product Engineering and Engineering Project Management.

"I didn't realize that
Vecoplan had such a large engineering staff. The shredders they design for
recycling, plus the size and sophistication of the systems they engineer and
build for turning waste into a fuel is truly impressive," said Harrison. "You
need sponsors to be competitive in NASCAR, and it's great to have a sponsor
like Vecoplan that manufactures products you really believe in."
