Abington, Mass – One of New England’s rising racing stars, Nick Lascuola, has entered the Champion Spark Plugs “Search for a Champion” contest and is hoping to win top prize so he can donate a portion of it to his favorite charity.
Racers enter the contest by submitting a video and Champion Spark Plugs uses fan voting to help determine how they award 2013 sponsorship dollars with the grand prize winner receiving a $50,000 season sponsorship. Nick says if he wins the grand prize he will donate $5,000 of it to a cancer-related charity.
“My grandmother is a cancer survivor,” Nick explained. “She had throat cancer and now has a stoma. She has watched me since I was a baby and she loves my racing. She also still makes the best pasta and meatballs! If I am fortunate enough to win the grand prize we want to donate $5,000 of it to a charity that supports finding a cure for cancer. Anyone who has ever had cancer happen to a family member knows how hard it is. We do a lot of charity work and it’s important that we remember to share what we’re given with others who are less fortunate.”
