TBR/Golden Corral Partner For Three Speedway Races

Golden Corral will be back on board Tommy Baldwin Racing’s No. 36 Chevrolet for the three remaining superspeedway races this season.

Golden Corral returns at Talladega
Dave Blaney will drive the No. 36 Golden Corral/Camp Corral Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, as well as at Daytona International Speedway in July and Talladega in October. Golden Corral sponsored the team in 21 events last season, and will focus this season on spreading the word about Camp Corral; a free summer camp for children of wounded, disabled or fallen military families. It is launching this summer at nine camps across the country, allowing 1,800 children to attend. Camp Corral provides a fun and developmental experience for kids ages 8 to 15 years old to participate in traditional camp activities, including horseback riding, swimming and fishing, with kids who share similar family situations.

Golden Corral will also continue its “Top-10 Kids Eat Free” promotion in all three events. Each time the No. 36 Golden Corral/Camp Corral Chevrolet finishes in the top-10, Golden Corral will offer a one-day “Kids Eat Free” promotion the immediate Monday following the top-10 event.

“We are pleased to be back on the track with the No. 36 team and to share our Camp Corral initiative and Kids Eat Free promotion with race fans,” said Shelley Wolford, Vice President of National Marketing and Media at Golden Corral.

Blaney finished third in last year’s fall event at Talladega Superspeedway, and led a total of 25 laps in the four superspeedway races. He finished 15th in the 2012 Daytona 500. “Golden Corral was a great partner for us last year,” said team owner Tommy Baldwin. “Not only were they a pleasure to work with, but their support got us to where we are today. We are pleased that they decided to have a program with us this year as well. We love racing to feed America’s families and hope we can bring awareness to Camp Corral as well.”
