Topics: Patrick Sheltra
MOORESVILLE, North Carolina (March 31, 2010) - - ARCA Racing Series (ARS) driver Patrick Sheltra has “good intentions” for two race fans who win the ultimate prize by entering the GoodIntentionsMovie.com contest which includes two VIP race tickets and hotel accommodations to Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway for the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) event the weekend of April 23, 2010.
Sheltra, who played a small role in the film starring Grammy award winning music artist LeAnn Rimes will throw a bonus into the grand prize by inviting the winner and their guest to attend the Talladega ARCA 250 event on Friday, April 23 as an official guest of the Sheltra Motorsports team.
The winner and their guest will receive two pit passes and allow them to experience the ARCA Racing Series garage first hand before joining the Mooresville, North Carolina based team on the sidelines for the fifth race of the 2010 season.
“We’ve been waiting for this movie to come out for a long time now,” said Sheltra. “It’s exciting to know that we had a small role in it. Our Sheltra Motorsports dirt car is even shown in a scene. The opportunity to promote the movie further and allow the winners of the contest to hang out with us for the ARCA race at Talladega is pretty exciting if you ask me. The exposure from the movie helps us out a little bit too, so it’s a win-win situation.”
Sheltra, the Indiantown, Florida native returns to a superspeedway on the heels of a stunning fifth-place performance in the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February where the 23-year old pro battled side-by-side with IZOD IndyCar Series star Danica Patrick before beating the No. 7 Godaddy.com Chevrolet Impala to the line in her first stock car race.
“Talladega is so much fun to race at compared to Daytona. Talladega is so smooth that you don’t have to worry about bouncing around every couple seconds. The smoothness of the track allows the competition to be hot and heavy and that’s why the ARCA Racing Series puts on a good show there. We are excited to have Buffalo Wings & Rings back on board for the race, so hopefully we can take them and our guests to victory lane.”
Sheltra has 69 ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards starts to his credit with one career victory at Salem Speedway (April 2009). During his ARCA tenure, Sheltra has accumulated 11 top-fives and posted 24 top-10 finishes. A third place qualifying effort at Rockingham Speedway (April 2009) is Sheltra’s best time trials efforts to date. He has controlled the ARCA field five times for 109 laps.
