Express Personnel Services NASCAR driver Lance Norick will make an appearance at the Tulsa Childrenâ€™s Medical Center on March 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to greet children who benefit from Norickâ€™s fundraising efforts on behalf of Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network (CMN).
Norick, driver of the No. 90 Express Personnel Servicesâ€™ Dodge Intrepid in the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series, looks forward to signing autographs and taking photographs with the children. â€œBeing a good role model for kids is one of the best parts about being a NASCAR driver,â€ said Norick. â€œTo make a sick child smile and forget theyâ€™re in a hospital, if only for a few moments, is a small contribution I can make to brighten their day.â€
Since his NASCAR career began, Norick has been involved with ill children. L & R Motorsports, the racing company owned by Norick and his father, Ron, supports Victory Lane Kids, a program that allows seriously ill children to experience the excitement of victory lane on race day. Now that Norick has the backing of Express Personnel Services, a national CMN sponsor, he devotes much of his philanthropic efforts to CMN. â€œThrough my Express sponsorship and their CMN affiliation, I am able to help children in several different ways,â€ said Norick. â€œIâ€™m so grateful for the opportunity.â€
