NASCAR team to promote bill to reinstate federal parole
FedCURE and Carter 2 Motorsports Team Up to Run "H.R. 3072" in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series
FedCURE, is pioneering the use of NASCAR racing cars to promote federal legislation. FedCURE authored a bill that is now pending in the U.S. Congress known as: H.R. 3072 - A Bill to Revive the System of Parole for Federal Prisoners. The bill, H.R. 3072, is the first promotion of legislation, ever, to ride on a NASCAR. FedCURE has several other bills currently pending in the U.S. Congress that it supports which will also adorn the NASCAR circuit—Driven by: www.FedCURE.org.
FedCURE has teamed up with Carter 2 Motorsports, of Statesville, North Carolina, a New Limited Late Model and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Team. Owner - Driver, Roger Carter, II.
H.R. 3072’s first race will be the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in Bristol, TN., on 23 August 2006. This is the 17th race out of 25 on the 2006 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Schedule. We are looking at doing New Hampshire on 16 September, Martinsville on 21 October, and Homestead-Miami on 17 November, 2006. The series has over 30 million fans in the United States.
FedCURE’s lifetime member and PBS film producer, Allan Mason, is helping to sponsor the promotion of this venture through his company, BNN (Broadcast News Network) and a show he produces called "96 Seconds." BNN is going up with a crew to do a 6-7 hour shoot with NASCAR driver, Roger Carter, II and his folks at Carter 2 Motorsports. The first segment will air on cable to approximately 10-14 million viewers.
Roger Carter has offered hospitality to FedCURE at the 23 August race in Bristol, Tenn. If anyone can make it for a day or two of racing and to man H.R. 3072’s kiosk, please let us know soon by sending an e-mail to: FedCURE@FedCURE.org. Bring you laptops with WIFI.
FedCure is looking for graphic designers and a commercial printer to do the kiosk promotion and to make up banners and signs. Please contact us immediately if you can donate these services.
