Whiteville, NC – RBR Enterprises and Black’s Tire will host the race weekend activities on Friday and Saturday, June 20th and 21st    All these events will be centered around the Saturday, June 21st   USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series Event.

In business since 1929, Black’s Tire Service is located in Whiteville, NC, with 31 locations including a central distribution center, 2 wholesale centers and 28 retail and commercial locations.  They are located throughout Southeastern North Carolina and Northeastern South Carolina.

“We plan on this being a big promotion for us all,” said Rick Benton.  “This year we are marketing with some strong partners and this should definitely be the largest promotion of the year surrounding a USAR Hooter’s Pro Cup Event.  The BTS Hospitality Village will feature several top corporate marketing partners. We have hosted the hospitality village every year since 1995 and we have seen it grow into a very big event.  The hospitality village is a great way to promote together with our customers, vendors, and business associates.  This year we are catering to around 3,000 guests. The hospitality event will feature a cookout, live band, giveaways to the first 500 guest, 2 live radio remotes, and a lot of fun for the entire family.”

In addition to hosting the hospitality event, Black’s Tire Service will host the 7th Annual Boys & Girls Home Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, June 20th.  In 2007, BTS and its partners raised over $45,000 for the Boys & Girls Home Charity.

Black’s Tire will be presenting sponsor of the Greased Lightning 200 on Saturday, June 21st.  Race Time on Saturday will be at 7:30 with pre-race activities starting at 6:15pm.  RBR Enterprises, with driver Drew Herring, will be involved in over 15 show car appearances and live radio remotes leading up to this event.  For more information on the BTS Charity Golf Tournament, BTS Hospitality Village or the USAR Hooter’s Pro Cup Series Event.
