Here’s one for the NASCAR fans on The Plastics Blog:  Vecoplan LLC, a supplier of shredding equipment, sponsored the No. 23 car at the June 28 Nationwide “Feed the Children 300” at Kentucky Speedway.

The car was fielded by Rick Ware Racing and driven by Harrison Rhodes.

The race was sponsored by Feed The Children and through this partnership with Speedway Children’s Charities. As a result of the race, Feed The Children will deliver 500,000 pounds of food and supplies to families in racing communities across the country.

Len Beusse, chief operating officer at High Point, N.C.-based Vecoplan, said sponsoring a stock car is a natural — and fun — project for the company.

“This race was the perfect opportunity for Vecoplan. We’re located in the south, the birthplace of NASCAR, our subsidiary Vecoplan Midwest is about 30 minutes from Kentucky Speedway, we’re neighbors with the fine folks at Rick Ware Racing, Harrison Rhodes is not only an up and coming driver but also a young Christian man of character and integrity, and our company mission ‘Technology For A Sustainable Tomorrow’, ties in perfectly with ‘Feed The Children 300’, after all the reason we strive for a sustainable tomorrow is for our children,” Beusse said.

On July 1, Harrison Rhodes, Rick Ware and other members of the race team brought the #23 car to Vecoplan’s headquarters in High Point, N.C., where workers had an opportunity to take photos, get autographs and ask questions. The VIP visitors also got a tour of Vecoplan, including the company’s two engineering departments.
