ORLANDO – It’s a unique combination: the history of NASCAR racing, support for our nation’s veterans, and a unique nutritional supplement that’s building a reputation among athletes and those interested in physical fitness and wellness.
All three come together on Sunday, Feb. 26, when the NASCAR #3 race car comes out of retirement, and the #3 car’s Tour Bus makes an appearance at Anytime Fitness, 7982 Lake Wilson Road in Davenport, at 8:30 a.m., then at Gold’s Gym on 7733 Turkey Lake Road in Orlando from noon until 4 p.m. The NASCAR tour bus will be at the gym, providing guests with everything from the history of this popular sport to advice on health care — and a preview of the upcoming Austin Dillon 2012 NASCAR Nationwide tour … while also raising donations for the nation’s veterans.
The event is being brought to Orlando courtesy of AdvoCare, a health and wellness company that markets energy, weight-loss, nutrition and sports performance products.
AdvoCare has formed a partnership with racer Austin Dillon’s 2012 NASCAR Nationwide series tour. AdvoCare is also a contributing supporter of Operation Homefront, a non-profit agency that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors.
It’s also an afternoon to learn about AdvoCare’s products, and opportunities to join this business as a health and wellness coach.
“These products work,” said Dave Raith, an AdvoCare nutritional advisor and Lifestyle coach. “It’s proven, it’s tested. It’s endorsed by the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, and all the major league sports — and used by them. It’s independently tested to make sure there’s no banned substances,no unnecessary additives. On top of that, they help families, they help athletes, they can help you.”
AdvoCare cites the research done by distinguished professionals from fields that include nutrition, pharmacology, biology, kinesiology and medicine formulate nutritional solutions, who have helped the company put the highest-quality ingredients possible in their nutritional supplement products.
“It’s the best in human nutrition,” said Luis Rodriguez Jr., an AdvoCare independent distributor and member of the company’s national leadership team. “The professional athletes trust it. I trust it, and I trust it in my family’s bodies.”
It also offers a variety of options, he said, to anyone looking for different ways to improve their health and physical fitness.
“There are 76 products, so if you’re looking for wellness, energy or weight loss, we have a solution for all of those,” Rodriguez said.
Through its partnership with the NASCAR Nationwide Series, AdvoCare is also giving families, athletes and people looking to get back in shape an opportunity to get a look at a historic part of the racing world. After all, what’s being brought out of retirement is the car that Dale Earnhardt Sr. drove to the excitement of racing fans worldwide.
“For many, the #3 NASCAR carries a lot of emotion,” Raith said. “For AdvoCare, it does, too.”
Sunday’s event at Gold’s Gym, he said, offers “the awesome opportunity to tour the freshly released AdvoCare #3 NASCAR that Austin Dillon will be riding around the country in as part of his tours. That’s what he’ll be driving to all his races. He’ll be living in that at the race track. That’s Dale Earnhardt’s old number. That’s a very big deal to a lot of racing fans.”
This event is also an opportunity to sample AdvoCare products and learn more about opportunities to join the AdvoCare family.
There’s also a patriotic as well as historic aspect to this event, Raith noted.
“We will also be collecting coats and other donated items for wounded veterans through Operation Homefront,” he said. “Give to those who have already given. These guys went and fought for you and put their lives on the line for you.”
Operation Homefront provides direct services to alleviate a military family’s or individual’s emergency financial burden. This non-profit agency was formed in February 2002 to support the families of deployed service members immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, the organization has dramatically expanded and currently provides services to military families across the nation with 23 chapters in 27 states. In 2011, Operation Homefront met the needs of 155,984 military families, including active duty, Guard and Reserve members from all branches of service.
