TECH-NET, CARQUEST Auto Parts and Bobby Hamilton Racing Raise Awareness For Special Olympics

TECH-NET Professional Auto Service, CARQUEST Auto Parts and Bobby Hamilton Racing joined forces last week to raise funds and awareness for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Many of the estimated 3,000 visitors to an open house at Bobby Hamilton Racing in Mt. Juliet, TN, made cash donations to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics to participate in a NASCAR-themed tire-changing simulation game. Fans who posted a fast time were awarded with Goodyear Racing Tires, racing hats, T-shirts and other prizes.

"This is a great cause and we are honored to be a part of it with our open house," Hamilton said. "The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is the movement’s largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. Thanks to our involvement with TECH-NET, all of us at Bobby Hamilton Racing can be involved with this extremely worthy cause. There were some pretty fast tire changers out there. I may have to recruit a few of them to change tires at the races. I want to thank Mike DeSorbo from TECH-NET and Stan Marks from the local CARQUEST Auto Parts distribution center for their help with this worthy cause."

TECH-NET Professional Auto Service,, which has 4,600 Automotive Service Centers nationwide, is committed to serving their customers with professional automotive repair at a reasonable cost with qualified technicians. They utilize quality CARQUEST Auto Parts, guaranteed coast-to-coast.

"We are thrilled to be a part of the open house at Bobby Hamilton Racing," said Mike DeSorbo, director of professional markets for TECH-NET. "Just like all of the TECH-NET professionals across the United States, Bobby Hamilton takes great pride in his performance. With its association with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, TECH-NET can help raise awareness for a tremendous cause and the race fans can be a part of that. I am amazed at the turnout we had at Bobby Hamilton Racing. That just shows the level of commitment that NASCAR fans have for their sport."

CARQUEST Auto Parts is proud to be the Premier International Partner of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The Torch Run supports a wide variety of local fund-raising activities with CARQUEST, with 100% of all local funds remaining in the state or province where they are raised. Since 1998, CARQUEST has raised more than $2.4 million in cash for Special Olympics.
