J.D. Byrider Races to Help Riley Hospital with 13-Year Sponsorship
Posted 27 July 2016 12:00 AM by J.D. Byrider
J.D. Byrider has been a proud sponsor of Race for Riley Children’s Hospital for 13 years. We support many local charities and events, such as the Wounded Warrior Foundation, the local Lemonade Day and, most notably, the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk.
Race for Riley, which is held annually at New Castle Motorsports Park, is a special event for employees, who got to cheer on their own J.D. Byrider Racing Team, who competed in the event and earned some top placements.
Shannon Aldridge, director of franchise operations, won the Sponsor Race over John Andretti and Steve Petersen. In the Feature Race, driver Ron Petersen overcame an ill-handling kart late in the race to take the lead and the big win!
The J.D. Byrider Racing Team has a longstanding history of winning at the event. Last year, driver Tony Petersen took home the gold in the Feature Race. However, the entire team—and the company—is more focused on the good it can do for the local children’s hospital.
The company was recognized twice at the Window World Progressive Dinner, and Crew Chief and company Director of Real Estate Steve Petersen was called to the stage.
“The Riley Hospital for Children is such a contributor to the families of Indiana in caring for our sick children that it is a privilege for the J.D. Byrider Racing Team to be a part of the Race for Riley events,” Petersen said. “For the past 13 years, J.D. Byrider has contributed to, and the team has competed in the event, while posting many wins in the events competition.”
We’re proud of all our drivers and their efforts to support Riley Hospital for Children. The team donated $5,000 on behalf of the entire company. We hope this helps Riley Hospital to continue their high standards of quality and care for the children of Indianapolis and beyond.
