Stepping Stone Genetics To Donate $100 Per Win to the Kick-It Foundation
Inside Line Promotions - CALUMET, Iowa (May 29, 2013) - Stepping Stone Genetics Owner Jim Pomerenke is excited to partner with a trio of drivers to benefit Kick-It, which is the fundraising program focused on raising money for pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research.
Pomerenke is sponsoring 2011 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour champion Shane Stewart, Ian Madsen and Billy Alley this season. For every feature victory any of those three drivers record this season, Pomerenke will donate $100 to Kick-It.
"I have truly been blessed by three healthy children and I just want to do what I can do help the families in need," Pomerenke said.
He is committed to raise funds to help the kids and encourages everyone to get involved by donating whatever they can.
"I'm just trying to get people revved up," Pomerenke said. "We're trying to encourage other teams, other team owners and sponsors to get involved. The only way we're going to raise a lot of money is to have a lot of people involved."
Additionally, Stepping Stone Genetics is a team sponsor for Tony Stewart's Kick-It Cup at the 2013 Knoxville Nationals, scheduled for Friday, Aug. 9, at Young Field next to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.
"It's such a great cause and we want to generate as much attention to Kick-It as possible," Pomerenke said. "Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks as we are going to get rivalries started with the other teams and have fun with it before the game."
