HAMPTON, Ga. – Great Clips Inc., the world’s largest hair salon brand, will join with non-profit organization Feed The Children to sponsor the Aug. 30 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The race will be titled the Great Clips 300 Benefitting Feed The Children. The race will feature 195 laps around Atlanta Motor Speedway’s legendary 1.54-mile racing surface under the lights.
“We are very excited and honored to be a part of the Great Clips 300 race,” said Corey Gordon, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for Feed The Children. “This partnership with Great Clips, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Feed The Children will help shine a spotlight on hunger and poverty issues in the United States, helping us further our mission that no child or family should go to bed hungry.”
The Great Clips 300 Benefitting Feed The Children is nine races prior to the end of the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series season. That placement on the schedule is expected to raise the level of intensity for drivers seeking a series championship even more than usual.
“Great Clips is extremely proud to announce our new partner Feed the Children as we are going racing again this Labor Day Weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway and we couldn’t be happier to have the Great Clips 300 back in Atlanta,” said Dave Randall, Senior Marketing Manager of Great Clips.
