Hardee’s was onboard for a special award at the Race Drivers Banquet held in Opp, AL. The award recognized great sportsmanship that was displayed throughout the season. The drivers were noted for helping fellow racers in need on race day, racing clean by showing give and take, handling wins and losses with class, and just genuinely being a good sport. There were three winners for the 2016 Season that the driver and/or car owners demonstrated extraordinary sportsmanship. The 2016 Hardee’ Good Sportsmanship Award recipients were Lance Blacker, Doug Ater, and Billy Maxie.
Lance Blacker stated that it was nice to receive his Modified Division Trophy, but the Hardee’s Sportsmanship Award meant more to him than anyone would know!
Hardee’s Rainsville showed support for a local school football team – The Fyffe Red Devils who were recently awards State Champions in their football program. The team has been working hard to raise money to purchase their championship rings.
Coaches and Teachers brought their families out to support the team and the event. The players greeted and assisted guests during the day. Many guests came just to speak with and shake the team members hands. Family members stopped in for hugs and congratulations to their team.
In addition to the Spirit Day, the team did a silent auction for a signed football and raised additional funds. The Hardee’s team did some exciting games with the prize wheel and giveaways. The day was a success for the team and players by raising enough funds to purchase almost 2 more championship rings. Hardee’s was proud to show their support and how much Hardee’s Cares for this community!
