Richard Childress Racing pit crew members are braving the rainy cold weather without food or shelter to raise money and awareness for child hunger in North Carolina.
It’s called “Pit Stops for Poverty.”
Event organizer Ray Wright, who works in the Sprint Cup Series of NASCAR, says it allows him and the crew to put themselves in the shoes of children who are less fortunate and don’t always have access to a nice meal.
More than 30 Pit crew members set up camp near the RCR Complex in Welcome, North Carolina, Thursday at 5 p.m. and will go 24-hours without food or shelter.
Cash and food donations benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.
