Thrivent Racing Launches New Inspirational Message Program
MINNEAPOLIS (June 30, 2016) – NASCAR fans across the country have a new way to share what inspires them, as Thrivent Racing is excited to announce an inspirational message program in which fans can visit www.thriventracingpromo.com and explain what motivates them in their everyday lives. Additionally, fans who visit the site can enter the "Motor to Miami" sweepstakes for a chance to win a VIP trip to the season finale race in Miami, Fla. where they will stay on-site in a motorcoach and meet NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Michael McDowell.
 
Thrivent Racing represents the not-for-profit financial services organization Thrivent Financial as a primary sponsor of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team Circle Sport - Leavine Family Racing's No. 95 Chevrolet and driver Michael McDowell. The relationship, which began in August of 2014, has always had a focus on inspiration, giving fans the opportunity to inspire McDowell and also highlighting ways he inspires fans when they interact with him at the track, at community events and on social media.
 
This focus is now being taking a step further as Thrivent Racing invites race fans to upload a photo, video or story about what inspires them or how they inspire others at www.thriventracingpromo.com. Everyone who submits an inspiration will receive a free gift from Thrivent Racing for their first submission.
 
Fan input has always been a part of the Thrivent Racing program, as fans are able to submit inspirational messages to McDowell through social media each weekend when Thrivent is the primary sponsor of the No. 95. McDowell selects one message to be placed in his car during the race.

"I'm inspired all the time by race fans with the messages they send me," McDowell explained. "It has also been inspiring to get involved with some great programs like Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity, where I have a chance to volunteer alongside Thrivent members to help families in the communities where we race. I know we have fans out there doing inspirational things like that every day, and I'm excited to see what they share with us!"
 
In addition to posting about their inspiration, race fans who visit the website can also enter the "Motor to Miami" sweepstakes for a chance to win a VIP trip to the season finale race in Miami, Fla. The winner and one guest will be flown to Miami, spend the race weekend in a motorcoach at the track's infield, meet Michael McDowell and receive exclusive access to watch the race from the team's pit box.
 
"We're really excited to hear from fans and be able to reward one of them with this really special trip," said Craig Stacey, Thrivent Director of Marketing. "The NASCAR fan base is such a passionate one and we can't wait to share a once-in-a-lifetime experience with one lucky fan."
 
Fans can enter the "Motor to Miami" sweepstakes once a day every day from now through September 12, 2016 for a chance to win.
