Vecoplan brings biomass to the NASCAR “Feed the Children 200”

July 11, 2013 |

Vecoplan#23Yep, that’s biomass aggregation pioneer Vecoplan providing a logo on car #23 at the NASCAR Nationwide “Feed the Children 300”, fielded by Rick Ware Racing and driven by Harrison Rhodes, at the  Kentucky Speedway. Through a partnership with Speedway Children’s Charities, Feed the Children will deliver 500,000 pounds of food and supplies to families in racing communities across the country in connection with the race.

“This race was the perfect opportunity for Vecoplan,” said Len Beusse, chief operating officer of Vecoplan, We’re located in the south, the birthplace of NASCAR, our subsidiary Vecoplan Midwest is about 30 minutes from Kentucky Speedway, we’re neighbors with the fine folks at Rick Ware Racing, Harrison Rhodes is not only an up and coming driver but also a young Christian man of character and integrity, and our company mission ‘Technology for a Sustainable Tomorrow’, ties in perfectly with ‘Feed the Children 300,’ after all the reason we strive for a sustainable tomorrow is for our children.”

The Monday following the race July 1, Harrison Rhodes, Rick Ware and other members of the race team brought the #23 car to Vecoplan’s headquarters in High Point, N.C. The car was unloaded into one of Vecoplan’s manufacturing bays and Vecoplan employees were given the opportunity to see the car, meet and interact with Harrison and Rick, have their pictures taken with the car and crew, and get autographs. After a question and answer session, Harrison and the other members of Rick Ware racing toured Vecoplan’s test lab, engineering departments, manufacturing plant, parts and service departments, and offices.
