Topics: Patrick Sheltra, Menards 200
TOLEDO, Ohio (May 22, 2010) - - While Patrick Sheltra is racing almost on a weekly basis, Jon. T. Worch is serving daily in the United States Navy keeping America free from terrorism and other acts of violence that allows the ARCA Racing Series veteran team to compete on the 20-race schedule.
Worch now however is enjoying a much deserved break after returning to the United States from a trip overseas. While visiting the Ohio area this weekend, he will make a stop to the Toledo Speedway for Sunday’s Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care as a spectator.
When Sheltra, a native of Indiantown, Florida was informed that Operations Specialist second class Jon T. Worch was going to be in the crowd for the race on Sunday, he wanted to make sure that Worch was aware of the support and appreciation he has from not only the Sheltra Motorsports team but the rest of the racing community.
“Jon has been a fan of mine for a long time,” Sheltra remarked. “He is a hero in my books. His drive to serve our country on a daily basis should be an inspiration to us all and I’m just humbled that during his rare downtime he chose to come and watch me race.”
Sheltra Motorsports will express their gratitude to Worch by displaying a message on the rear spoiler of the No. 60 Recycling Services-Ferguson Pipe Dodge Charger. He will also be acknowledged in pre-race ceremonies before the drop of the green flag for Sheltra’s seventh career start at the half-mile short track.
Worch is based on the United States Navy Ship USS Cape St. George CG-71.
Entering Toledo, Sheltra has 72 ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards starts to his credit with one career victory at Salem (Ind.) Speedway (April 2009).
