INDIANAPOLIS – Clauson-Marshall Racing announced that it is continuing its partnership with Indiana Donor Network to promote organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation through the Driven2SaveLives campaign for the 2020 race season in honor of Bryan Clauson.

Driven2SaveLives, which launched in 2016 surrounding the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, has been involved in dirt track racing with the goal of registering fans and racers to become donors in honor of Bryan Clauson since January 2017. Since then, the campaign has raised awareness and encouraged well over 1,000 people to register their donation decisions through their partnership with Clauson-Marshall Racing and sponsorship of various dirt track related events, including the Driven2SaveLives BC39 Powered by NOS Energy Drink at the dirt track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Kellie Hanner, Indiana Donor Network president and chief executive officer, stated, “The Driven2SaveLives campaign is an increasingly visible symbol for the donation message both here in Indiana and throughout the nation. We are excited to continue our partnership with Clauson-Marshall Racing to raise awareness with race fans, register donors and ultimately save more lives.”

Stepping into a new role for Clauson-Marshall racing, Cole Bodine will pilot the Driven2SaveLives #39BC in 2020. Bodine is transitioning into a full-time competitor for the NOS ENERGY DRINK USAC National Midget Series. Bodine is no stranger to the driver’s seat as he previously ran for Clauson-Marshall Racing in a limited number of races in 2018. He also ran the 2019 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals for Clauson-Marshall Racing and solidified his spot in the Championship A-main by finishing 3rd on his preliminary night.

Tim Clauson stated, “We are excited to be able to offer Cole a chance to compete in the USAC National Midget Series. He has proved over the last couple of years that he truly has the heart to race at this level. Along with heart, in his limited appearances with us he has proved he has the talent to be successful at this level. He finished 2nd in one of his early starts for us and made the 2019 Chili Bowl A-main with a stellar podium run on his preliminary night. Along with the talent he possesses, he also has proved to me that he fits the person we want representing not only Clauson-Marshall Racing but also Driven2SaveLives. He certainly has proved he has the heart of a hero.”

Bodine will continue to help the Indiana Donor Network and Driven2SaveLives raise awareness for organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation, as he competes for the NOS ENERGY DRINK USAC National Midget Series Championship.

Bodine stated, “When you surround yourself with good people, good things happen. I’m honored to get this opportunity to carry on the legacy of the #39BC and continue to raise awareness for organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation in honor of Bryan. I can’t wait to get the 2020 season started.”
