HARVICK TO BE HONORED AT INAUGURAL EVENT
The West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame will honor Kevin Harvick for “Outstanding Personal Achievement” on November 10 at the Arizona Biltmore as part of a charitable fundraiser presented by Phoenix International Raceway during the Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekend in Phoenix. The event, hosted by ESPN pit reporter Jamie Little, will raise funds for the non-profit West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame and other charities.
Both Harvick, a Bakersfield, Calif. native, and Little – originally from Las Vegas – have deep ties to racing in the West. Their support of the Phoenix event was a perfect fit as the Hall of Fame looks to grow its presence not only in the West, but throughout NASCAR. Additional NASCAR drivers and personalities with West Coast roots are scheduled to appear at the event alongside Harvick and Little for this very special “Night to Remember.”
“We are honored to have Kevin Harvick join us in Phoenix on November 10,” Said Ken Clapp, Board Chair for the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame. “We’re extremely pleased to present Kevin with an ‘Outstanding Personal Achievement’ honor and we look forward to the day when he will be eligible to receive nomination for induction into the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame.”
Phoenix International Raceway’s first annual “Night to Remember” will be held at the legendary Arizona Biltmore Resort at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10. Tickets for the event are $250 each and will provide attendees with the chance to spend an evening with honored NASCAR guests while enjoying food & beverage, as well as an exclusive charity auction. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the non-profit West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame and other designated charities.
A special transportation-included VIP Package has been created for NASCAR fans camping at Phoenix International Raceway during PIR’s November event weekend. For $350, these guests will receive a ticket to “Night to Remember” and first-class transportation to and from the event from PIR by Carey transportation. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available.
