Pitcher also tabbed to drive pace car Sunday
The motorsports and baseball worlds will unite this fall in a three-way partnership to raise money and awareness for two major youth charities. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher and 2006 National League Cy Young Award winner Brandon Webb, and Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber recently announced plans for the charity event "Offspeed," set to take place at PIR's exclusive lounge, Octane, on Thursday, November 6 at 5:30 p.m. Webb will also act as honorary pace car driver for Sunday’s Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil. To ready for his Sunday duty, Webb will join Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch for a driving lesson at 12:15 p.m. on Saturday, November 8. The program will benefit the NASCAR-themed Victory Junction Gang Camp-Kansas, located near Bowyer’s hometown of Emporia, Kansas, and Brandon Webb’s K Foundation, the initiative started by Webb and his wife, Alicia, in 2005 to benefit ill Phoenix-area children. “Offspeed” is sponsored in part by St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. “I’m really looking forward to a great evening at Octane to raise money for two great causes,” Bowyer said. “Bryan Sperber paired up Brandon Webb and I for this unique event at the race track that I know everyone will enjoy. We hope to make this the first of many more for years to come, and raise a lot of money for the Victory Junction Gang Camp in Kansas City and the K Foundation.” Said Webb: “We’re really excited to be partnering with Clint and PIR. 'Offspeed’ is going to be a great event and its proceeds will help thousands of sick children in both Phoenix and Kansas City.” Tickets for the charity event are $250 each, and guests will have the chance to mingle with Bowyer and Webb while enjoying food and drink, an amazing view of the racing action at PIR, and an exclusive charity auction, all while contributing to the future well-being of critically ill children. Presenting sponsorships for the event are also available, with packages starting at $10,000. Those interested in attending or sponsoring “Offspeed” are encouraged to contact Stacy Kutz of the PIR Corporate Sales department at (623) 463-5632 or skutz@phoenixinternationalraceway.com.
