BSA Goes NASCAR!
As the BSA continues to articulate our movement in more relevant and meaningful terms to the American public, we’re proud to announce our entry into the exciting, fast-paced sport of NASCAR. This high profile platform will allow the BSA to take the lead on defining who we are, continue our efforts of promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to those involved in Scouting, and directly support Scouting’s Journey to Excellence.
The National Council is proud to announce a multiyear relationship with Scott Lagasse, owner of Team SLR. Scott’s team has secured a multiyear, primary sponsorship with Peterson Industries, home of the Hybrid Light product line – solar flashlights that are always ready to work without a concern for dead batteries. With Hybrid Light as the primary sponsor and the BSA as the associate sponsor, Team SLR is gearing up for a successful run in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series. In preparation for a competitive 2013 season, Team SLR will be running the Hybrid Light/BSA car in three races this year: 1) Kentucky 300 – Sparta, KY, 2) Kansas Lottery 300 – Kansas City, KS, and 3) Ford EcoBoost 300 – Homestead, FL.
Scouting has worked for more than a century to become part of the solutions that move our country forward; but we realize we can’t do it alone. We are simply a piece of a very complex and broad-reaching puzzle. Organizations like Team SLR of the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Hybrid Light embrace their role in this great pursuit. With this understanding, our goal is to continue to position Scouting as a valued partner to community organizations, corporate champions, and sporting leagues, all seeking to do their part in cultivating our greatest American asset, our youth.
There aren’t many better platforms to broadcast the Scouting message than through NASCAR, so please be on the lookout for more information about this exciting relationship with Scott Lagasse and Team SLR.
