Lamar and Biffle Team up to Race for Furry Friends

No. 37 car to feature Greg Biffle Foundation Logo for Darlington Race

(Nashville, Tenn.) May 6, 2008 – In his heart, Burney Lamar has a soft spot for his several pets which include three cats and three dogs.  For Lamar and his wife, Niki, these six furry friends are family.  And, to honor these family members, Lamar and Baker Curb racing have paired up this weekend with the Greg Biffle Foundation to show a little love to their beloved animals. 

The No. 37 Greg Biffle Foundation Ford Fusion will take on the “track too tough to tame” at Darlington Raceway for the Diamond Hill Plywood 200. 

“Greg and Nicole have taken the power of NASCAR and the passion of their heart, animal advocacy, and rolled them into their foundation,” said Lamar.  “I am pleased to be part of this organization and lend my support as well as my personal resources.”

The Greg Biffle Foundation was founded in 2005 by Greg and Nicole Biffle to create awareness and serve as advocates to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry. Financial support for the foundation comes from a variety of sources including individual contributions, NASCAR Pets calendars, and the sale of various racing and other sports memorabilia.  To date, the foundation has granted money to over 83 shelters nationwide.

"Its great to have people in the racing community care about our foundation as much as we do,” said Biffle. “And what a great supporter Baker Curb racing is to display our logo for the Nationwide race to help us continue to create awareness for thousands of homeless animals across America."

Lamar and the No. 37 team are in action Friday night under the lights at 7:30 pm on ESPN2.
