Houston, TX. - While serving as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, Kingdom Racing completed the 2012 season by finishing fifth in the INDYCAR point standings. As they prepare to build upon this success in 2013, significant strides are being made. With new key personnel, partnerships, and assets, they are poised to further extend His Kingdom as they continue their mission of delivering God’s Word through Motorsports. To this end, the team has made the following new commitments for 2013.
In December, Kingdom Racing contracted with The B&B Media Group, a leading public relations agency in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, for the purpose of increasing national awareness of the team’s unique ministry. “A partnership with B&B is a natural fit for the organization and will help raise our platform to the next level by utilizing the media and various Christian organizations”, said founder George Del Canto.
Contingent upon adequate funding and donor contributions, Kingdom Racing plans to broaden their ministry outreach in 2013, targeting a total of ten VIP Miles of Smiles experiences across the country and as many as four Fan Festivals at locations yet to be determined. These ministry events will be supported by a recently purchased custom Trackside Hospitality Unit. This unit will serve several purposes, including the hosting of corporate and ministry events across America during the season.
To lead the contributions campaign, Alan Litvak has been named as the National Contributions Manager. “Alan has been involved since the birth of the Kingdom Racing dream, and we are confident he will successfully guide the funding effort that is critical to reaching our bold ministry objectives”, said Del Canto.
Litvak added, “I was blessed to be part of the launch of Kingdom Racing, and it is amazing to be able to officially rejoin the team at this time. I am overjoyed to see the quality of people and the resources we have in place that will allow us to continue to grow God’s influence at the tracks and beyond. We look forward to empowering many new partners to join us for the 2013 season as Kingdom Racing continues to win on and off the track.”
The 2013 INDYCAR season is drawing near with the opening round set for the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida on March 24, 2013.
