Express Personnel Services NASCAR driver Lance Norick will make an appearance at the Tulsa Children’s Medical Center on March 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to greet children who benefit from Norick’s fundraising efforts on behalf of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN).

Norick, driver of the No. 90 Express Personnel Services’ Dodge Intrepid in the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series, looks forward to signing autographs and taking photographs with the children. “Being a good role model for kids is one of the best parts about being a NASCAR driver,” said Norick. “To make a sick child smile and forget they’re in a hospital, if only for a few moments, is a small contribution I can make to brighten their day.”

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. “Through my Express sponsorship and their CMN affiliation, I am able to help children in several different ways,” said Norick. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”
