Presbyterian Healthcare will partner with Michael McDowell driver of the No. 98 Ford Fusion car in the National Association of Stock Car Racing’s (NASCAR) Sprint Cup Series. As part of the sponsorship, McDowell’s car will exclusively sport the Presbyterian Healthcare logo on all sides at the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, May 27.
Presbyterian is using the partnership as an opportunity to promote to a wide audience the importance of regular health screenings to save lives. The back of McDowell’s car will publicize a Presbyterian website (www.HealthPitStop.org). The site helps people better understand which screenings they should have based on their ages and health history and how to access the screenings through Presbyterian Healthcare/Novant Health’s programs.
To formally announce the partnership, Presbyterian Healthcare, Phil Parsons Racing and Michael McDowell will host a news conference with a show car unveiling on May 21 at 1 p.m. at Presbyterian Hospital. After the news conference, McDowell will visit children at Presbyterian’s Hemby Children’s Hospital. The community can view the car at Presbyterian Hospital from 2-7 p.m.
The car will also be on display at Presbyterian Hospital Huntersville on May 22 from 2-7 p.m. and at Presbyterian Hospital Matthews on May 23 from 2-7 p.m.
