RCR, LENOX® Continue Partnership

Richard Childress Racing and LENOX Industrial Tools, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, continue their partnership with driver Jeff Burton and the No. 31 Chevrolet Impala team through the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The RCR/LENOX partnership began in 2007 and continues to be a core component of the LENOX motorsports program.

LENOX will be the No. 31 team’s primary sponsor at the June 27 LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and both Jeff Burton and Richard Childress will support LENOX through customer appearances and advertising.

The RCR partnership will also serve as a platform to honor the life of Pete Dingeman, the 2009 “LENOX Extra Mile Hero." Pete dedicated his life to supporting the Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) and last year donated his entire $31,000 winnings from LENOX to support this cause. Sadly, Pete passed away in December of last year after a life-long battle with neurofibromatosis (NF). In recognition of his heroic efforts, a decal honoring Pete will be placed on the No. 31 paint scheme, and the 2010 LENOX Industrial Tools 301 will be dedicated to him.
