The FedEx Racing Team Wants to Hear From You

denny.jpg

Hi FedEx Team Members –

Well, we’re coming to the end of the 2010 season and while it’s been an awesome year so far – it’s by no means over. Six wins and a lot of great moments have the #11 FedEx Racing team in the thick of the 2010 Chase for the Sprint Cup and I am writing today to tell you we are focused on bringing home a championship. Rest assured everyone at Joe Gibbs Racing wants to deliver a Sprint Cup championship to our friends and fans at FedEx.

For those of you who haven’t been following this season, we rebounded from a slow start on the track, and a significant injury to my left knee that required surgery, to go on quite a run through the late spring and summer months.  Wins at Martinsville, Texas and Darlington paved the way for additional triumphs at Pocono and Michigan. One last regular season win at Richmond sent us into the Chase leading in the points and since then we’ve run almost side by side with Jimmie Johnson and the #48 team. We have a great team, the best fans in NASCAR and we like our chances.

Away from the track the FedEx Racing team continues our race to serve the community. By taking the excitement of racing into the community, and with some help from our friends and partners at the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army, we have been able to share information about FedEx’s role in preparing for disasters and also pitching in when disaster strikes. In cities across the country, we have visited with school-aged children and put on “Racing to Prepare” clinics to help them prepare for disasters of all kinds – including a very important race to make their own disaster preparedness kits.  In Boston this summer, I was joined by Mayor Thomas Menino as FedEx presented the Salvation Army with a Disaster Relief Unit to help serve in times of need. Amazingly, it’s was the 13th vehicle of its kind to be donated by FedEx to Salvation Army chapters around the United States, and around the world.  Anyone at Joe Gibbs Racing can tell you how much it means to us to represent FedEx and support all FedEx does in the community. I’ve also had the opportunity to meet team members at the facilities where they work, at employee gatherings at the race track and even along the routes where they deliver.

We are asking all FedEx team members to be a part of the Chase and send the #11 team their encouragement and best wishes – and like last year we’re going to collect them all and put them on the pit wall banner that will hang in the #11 pit stall at Phoenix.  Your words definitely give the #11 team yet another reason to push for a win and you can simply post a comment below by November 1 for inclusion.  Please limit the number of characters in your message so we can include as many messages as possible.  

I look forward to reading the messages as we approach some big upcoming weekends for this FedEx Racing team.  Until next time, know that we are racing for you.

Denny
