Red Cross Racing is taking another lap!

NASCAR is starting to get a big Pacific Northwest following thanks to Vancouver driver Greg Biffle. And not only is he promoting racing to the region, but also blood donations with the Red Cross nationally!

The American Red Cross is teaming up with 3M, Roush Fenway Racing, and NASCAR driver Greg Biffle for the third year of Red Cross Racing, a blood donor rewards program designed to increase the number of people giving blood and the number of times they donate. The efforts of the previous two years of Red Cross Racing have resulted in just over 115,000 blood donations.

You can join the program by visiting Red Cross Racing members get points for a variety of activities, including giving blood and/or platelets and recruiting other blood donors to join by January 15, 2011. These points may be exchanged for prizes such as limited edition die cast cars, gardening sets, pocket tools, laptop computer bags and other exciting rewards.

The full Red Cross paint-scheme will be used on 6/27/2010 in New Hampshire and on 11/07/2010 in Texas. You can follow Red Cross Racing on Twitter.

Best wishes to Greg Biffle this racing season and to his cardboard cut-out to avoid another kidnapping!
