TO BE REVEALED FRIDAY AT USAC’S “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS”
Four young aspiring race drivers will be announced as the recipients of the inaugural eBay Motors/PACE Awards this Friday night as part of festivities at the 56th Annual USAC “Night of Champions Awards ceremonies.
Each of the drivers under the age of 20 will receive a distinctive award and the program offers more than $100,000 from eBay Motors which will apply toward their motorsports careers.
In conjunction with USAC sponsors Traxxas, AMSOIL, Mopar and Oakley, eBay Motors has partnered together with them to develop this new scholarship program to recognize emerging motorsports talent and foster their careers.
"eBay Motors is incredibly excited to partner with USAC to help support the racing community," said David Thawley, Sr., manager, eBay Motors. "With the millions of enthusiasts visiting eBay Motors each month, we wanted an opportunity to give back to the community, and the sponsorship with USAC is a great way to do so. As this year's racing season comes to a conclusion, we congratulate this year's top winners, and look forward to an exciting year ahead."
Two additional drivers will also be awarded special “arrive and drive” programs by eBay Motors and they will also be announced at Friday’s USAC function.
The PACE awards represent the Program for Acceleration of Championship Education and these awards are designed to become an annual vehicle for recognition of youthful motorsports talent.
