Kansas City-area men win NASCAR tickets from American Red Cross

September 27, 2010

American Red Cross Blood Donors Marty Gray of Cameron, Mo., and Ken Hoffman Jr., of Spring Hill, Kan., are going to this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series Kansas Lottery 300 and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Price Chopper 400 at Kansas Speedway with tickets won through a promotion by the Red Cross.


Gray and Hoffman were chosen at random from all those who attempted to donate blood to the Red Cross in the Kansas City area earlier this month. Gray is a police officer in Cameron and Hoffman is employed by the city of Olathe.


The men, who each won two tickets to both races, were also entered into a drawing for a 2011 Ford Fiesta. Thanks to a generous donation by the Ford Motor Company, the American Red Cross and Red Cross Racing, the Red Cross’ donor loyalty program, are giving away a 2011 Ford Fiesta to one lucky winner. It’s our way of saying thank you to our committed blood donors. Donors can register online at redcrossracing.com for a chance to win. Visit the website for official rules. The sweepstakes ends Nov. 1, 2010.
