CSF Teams Up with Richard Childress to Support Sportsmen’s Issues

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) and NASCAR legend and CSF Board of Directors member Richard Childress celebrated the 8th Annual “Wine, Wheels & Wildlife” event on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at Childress Vineyards in Lexington, North Carolina. The event served as an opportunity to bring the racing and hunting and fishing communities together to underscore the importance for sportsmen and women to have a voice in the halls of government.

Celebrating “Wine, Wheels & Wildlife,” were over 300 hunting and fishing enthusiasts, representatives from NASCAR, state and federal legislators, natural resource management agencies and outdoor industry organizations from across the country. In support of CSF, attendees got the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities, a raffle and live auction and to enjoy entertainment provided by avid sportsman and comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

CSF President Jeff Crane opened the event and gave a special thank you to host Richard Childress. Crane recognized Childress’ support and work as a member of CSF’s board of directors. “A lot of people recognize Richard for what he has done in the world of racing, but he is also a dedicated outdoorsman and a tremendous conservationist who has been a fantastic member of CSF’s board of directors.”

Childress, who has hosted “Wine, Wheels & Wildlife” with CSF since its inauguration in 2004, talked about the success the event has seen over the last eight years. “I look back and think about the first ‘Wine, Wheels & Wildlife’ eight years ago and note that tonight we have over 300 people in attendance, and I want to thank all of you who are here to support CSF.”

CSF’s Chairman of the Board, former Georgia Congressman Lindsay Thomas addressed the crowd about the importance of CSF’s mission and protecting and promoting the traditions of hunters and anglers in America. “It is important that the outdoor industry has their voice at the table. There are those who are opposed to the rights of hunters and fisherman and our pursuit to conserve wildlife in this country. It is important to support organizations, like CSF, that protect our outdoor traditions to secure the future of hunting and fishing in America,” Thomas stated.

Also in attendance were Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Vice-Chair, Representative Heath Shuler and CSC Representative Jeff Duncan. Representative Shuler spoke to the crowd about his tenure as CSC Vice-Chair and the caucuses’ bipartisan nature. “When you talk about the outdoors and conservation, political boundaries are truly dropped. If it wasn’t for the relationship forged between CSF and folks here tonight, we wouldn’t have the ability to reach across the political aisle.”

Representative Shuler introduced his colleague in the House of Representatives and Representative Duncan spoke about his membership in both the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC). “I was a member of NASC for a number of years and I understand the importance in championing legislation for access to public lands and our rights to hunt and fish. CSC and NASC have been crucial as our allies in protecting the outdoors,” Duncan stated.

The event was provided by Richard Childress Racing and Childress Vineyards. The title sponsors included ATK, Caterpillar, Daimler and Safari Club International. The outdoor activity sponsor was Bass Pro Shops and the evening’s dinner was sponsored by the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund and Dallas Safari Club. The bar was sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, Black Lab Vodka, Childress Vineyards and Diageo. The live auction sponsor was Remington and the raffle was sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and Shimano.

Moon Shine Attitude Attire Joins Circle Sport to Go Pink at Kansas

Circle Sport, LLC, today announced that Moon Shine, LP, a premium designer of Moon Shine Attitude Attire, will mark its first NASCAR sponsorship this weekend at Kansas Speedway by turning the familiar No. 33 pink for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its Muddy Girl Camouflage pattern. Cole Whitt, the 21-year-old development driver for the Dale Earnhardt Jr.-owned JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, will pilot the No. 33 Moon Shine Attitude Attire Chevrolet in Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400.

“We are honored that Circle Sport has given us this prime means to further brand our product line. Moonshine was the start of all motorsports and that played a part in the reasoning for our company name,” stated Moon Shine LP president Travis Mattern. “In the past we have focused our marketing efforts in the outdoor industry, but through 2012 we have done a lot more in the motorsports industry and it has been successful. The diversity of our company leaves the door open to endless possibilities and this opportunity with Circle Sport is a perfect example of that.”

Whitt will attempt to qualify for his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of the 2012 season on the newly re-surfaced Kansas Speedway in addition to his primary duties behind the wheel of the No. 88 JR Motorsports Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. The No. 33 team will take advantage of a two-day test session at Kansas Speedway in advance of this weekend’s race and will continue to be led by three-time Daytona 500 championship crew chief Tony Glover.

“When we saw the Moon Shine logo, it immediately clicked that they had a brand intended for NASCAR,” stated Circle Sport team owner Joe Falk. “They have an image that will connect with NASCAR’s fan base and plays to the roots of the sport. The Muddy Girl Camouflage pattern is not only visually appealing but it will also help draw additional attention to National Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is an initiative that the entire NASCAR community has embraced.”

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Hollywood Casino 400 will be broadcast live on ESPN from Kansas Speedway on Sunday, October 21st with pre-race coverage beginning at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Moon Shine Attitude Attire Joins Hillman Racing’s NASCAR Team

Moon Shine Attitude Attire Joins Hillman Racing’s NASCAR Team

Beavertown, PA– Moon Shine, LP, a premium designer of Moon Shine Attitude Attire, announces a new partnership with Hillman Racing, which owns and operates the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series #27 driven by Jeb and Ward Burton. Moon Shine Attitude Attire will become their official apparel company.

“We are very excited to team up with Hillman Racing to provide both Jed and Ward Burton with cutting edge designer apparel that conveys the attitude and traditional values of every generation,” stated Moon Shine LP President, Travis Mattern. “We anticipate new growth and further opportunities in the racing community with this new partnership.”

Hillman Racing is making its NASCAR debut this season, but the organization is anything but new to the sport.  Team owner Mike Hillman Sr. played a key role in the founding of Germain Racing and was the architect of the group’s two NASCAR championships in 2006 and 2010.  Hillman acquired the championship-winning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series assets following the conclusion of the 2011 season and is set to embark as the owner and general manager of Hillman Racing for the 2012 season.

“When we formed Hillman Racing in the off-season, it was our goal to attract new partners to the organization that could grow with us,” commented Hillman.  “I see that opportunity with Moon Shine Attitude Apparel. When we first saw their lineup of clothing, I knew immediately that it was something that would appeal to NASCAR fans because it was a hit in our race shop.  We look forward to expanding our relationship with Moon Shine as we continue to develop our own operation.”
