CONCORD, NC (May 1, 2013) – With the stars of NASCAR rolling
into Charlotte, NC for two-straight weeks of racing in May, the
nearby Texas Roadhouse at Concord Mills announced today
their inaugural “Race Night with Bob Dillner and Friends” will
occur on the 22nd this month from 4 – 10pm. Proceeds from the
event will benefit Motor Racing Outreach.
“What a perfect night! Racing, steaks at Texas Roadhouse and
MRO,” said Bob Dillner, NASCAR television broadcaster on SPEED
and FOX Sports. “Motor Racing Outreach is an organization that
my wife Angie and I truly believe in. They do so much for our faith
and for those in need. When we talked to Texas Roadhouse about
doing something special for MRO, they jumped right on board and
we are truly grateful for their support.”
Texas Roadhouse will donate 10-percent of their sales from
4 – 10pm to MRO.
“We are super excited to be hosting this event with Bob,” said Sam Fisk, Texas Roadhouse Marketing Manager. “We are looking forward to seeing a lot of race fans turn out for this event. We hope that many people come and enjoy a great meal to benefit Motor Racing Outreach. This Texas Roadhouse is the home of the third-best meat cutter in the country, so you will be guaranteed a great-tasting steak.”
The event will begin at 4pm and will feature give-a-ways, a racecar display and special appearances by personalities in the racing industry. An autograph session from 5:30 – 6:30pm will feature NASCAR on SPEED/FOX Sports broadcasters Larry McReynolds, Jeff Hammond, Wendy Venturini and Dillner, plus drivers Corey LaJoie (son of former NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Randy LaJoie) and Bobby Measmer Jr. Several other celebrities to make appearances at the event are expected to be announced soon.
In addition to rising star LaJoie and Measmer, several of the top prospects in the American racing industry will take part in a special radio show to be hosted live at Texas Roadhouse from 6 – 8pm on Speed51.com.
“We are extremely grateful to Bob and Angie Dillner and their team at Speed51.com for choosing MRO for this benefit,” Billy Maudlin, President and CEO of Motor Racing Outreach said. “We are one big family in racing and for them to come along help, there is nothing sweeter. We cannot express more gratitude for their work and effort in putting this event together. We hope that many fans and families come out and join us for this special event. Ten-percent of the proceeds will be going back into MRO to continue with our outreach, vision and philosophy.”
Texas Roadhouse in Concord, NC is located just down the road from the entrance of the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Concord Mills mall location. Join us on Wednesday, May 22 at Texas Roadhouse on 7801 Gateway Lane in Concord, NC.
