Chambers at the Forefront
Chamber Hits the Track
If you watched the NASCAR Nationwide series race on June 13 at Kentucky Speedway you may have glimpsed an interesting logo roaring around the track. Yes indeed, that is the logo for the Greater Owensboro (KY) Chamber of Commerce on the bottom quarterpanel near the rear tire on the Number 0 car.
Mark Green, the car's driver, is an Owensboro native and when car owner JD Motorsports was looking for a sponsor for the Meijer 300 in Kentucky they turned to Owensboro Chamber President Jody Wassmer for help. Jody turned to K. Wayne Foster, founder of American Patriot Getaways and 2009 Board Chair of the Owensboro Chamber.
"Wayne is very community oriented," said Wassmer. "It's not costing the chamber anything. And it's not every day a chamber of any size gets to have its name on a car."
NASCAR fans, eat your hearts out.
