Last year at the LENOX Industrial Tools 301, Pete was announced as the winner of the LENOX Extra-Mile Hero Contest. Pete was presented with a check for $31,000 for his charity, The Children’s Tumor Foundation with an additional $31,000 going to Pete for being the LENOX Extra-Mile Hero – a portion of which he donated back to The Foundation.
To further acknowledge the work and life of Pete, LENOX will collect fan signatures in his honor throughout the race weekend and make $1 donation to the Children’s Tumor Foundation for each signature – for up to $10,000. “Pete has left us with a legacy of going the extra mile in his community and we want to recognize his dedication and strength by giving back to the cause that meant the most to him – The Children’s Tumor Foundation,” stated Rich Mathews, vice president of marketing for LENOX. “The LENOX Industrial Tools 301 continues to be a great opportunity for us to connect with our customers and share stories of the everyday heroes among us.”
The LENOX Industrial Tools 301 NASCAR race takes place on Sunday, June 27th at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH.
