Race to Build takes the green flag for veterans in need




Teams of Appalachia Service Project volunteers will take the green flag for the fourth annual Food City 500 Race to Build event at 8:45 a.m. Friday. And by Sunday afternoon, three new homes for Tri-Cities area veterans in need will be constructed in the shadow of BMS colosseum.

Area residents and race fans from across the country here for the spring NASCAR races are invited to stop by and watch as teams from Iowa State University, the University of Nebraska and East Tennessee State University race for the honor of completing the fastest, safest and most accurately built a new home.

State Farm will kick off the Race to Build with a ceremonial green flag drop and a check presentation for ASP.

NASCAR drivers and event sponsors will make appearances at the homes to take shape. Special activities will be provided to allow children to take part in the house builds. And an educational program for high school students interested in careers in construction will be held at the build site on Saturday.

 

The race will conclude at 12:30 p.m. Sunday with final home inspections and a closing ceremony to name the winners.

Event coordinator Laura Kelly said Race to Build “is a unique event that assists local families in need and also empowers students to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom” in a truly meaningful way.

 

 

“We hope to see many race fans coming by to watch and root on their favorite team, as well as learn more about ASP’s work in the region,” she said.

The homes’ floors, walls, trusses, and roofs will be built at the race track before being moved to their final locations in Johnson City, where ASP volunteers will complete their construction and celebrate with a home-dedication ceremony to present the door keys to the veterans and their families.

Race to Build is made possible through partnerships with the Home Depot Foundation, Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Bristol Motor Speedway, State Farm, Food City and numerous other corporate and nonprofit sponsors.
