Division 1 Wrestlers Make Home with Hendrick
George Hickman, Colton Palmer, Matt Moley and Frank Hickman have joined the Hendrick family in Atlanta. All four of these young men are former Division 1 wrestlers. George, Frank and Matt all competing for Bloomsburg University and Colton at North Carolina State University.
The relationship of these four young men is very interesting. Colton, George and Frank met at a very young age through the sport of wrestling, often times running into each other at AAU and USA wrestling events. George the older of the Hickman duo and Colton the youngest of three boys and a wrestling family would often represent North Carolina at the toughest tournaments around the country but, little did they know, they would be brothers 6 years down the road? Following George’s second state title at Laney High School, unfortunately George’s coach left Wilmington for Pennsylvania and George contemplated ending his wrestling career. Soon thereafter George proposed one option and that was to move to Durham, NC from Wilmington to wrestle for Riverside, the defending North Carolina State champions. The Hickman’s made the phone call and that’s all she wrote. “I remember getting picked up from my middle school wrestling practice and my dad telling me you have a new brother, I laughed and asked what are you talking about. He answered we are taking guardianship of George Hickman so he can join the Riverside family and the Palmer family,” Colton said. George moved in the same day and life changed forever. Not only did George become a part of the Riverside family but he became a part of the Palmer family. The Hickman’s and Palmer’s have become lifelong friends that have bonded through the sport of wrestling.
George went on to wrestle for Bloomsburg University after high school in 2005 and Colton headed to North Carolina State University upon graduation in 2007. Frank would follow in George’s footsteps also joining Bloomsburg University after graduating in 2008. Matt Moley became a great friend and teammate of Frank Hickman throughout their wrestling careers at Bloomsburg.
George Hickman the first to make the move to Atlanta to join the Hendrick family was brought here by former coach and mentor Dan DeHass. Dan has a firm belief that wrestlers are great for the job due to their ability to grind it out with a relentless determination and unwavering drive to succeed. Which is a mindset that has been ingrained in these young men throughout their wrestling careers. A lot of sports take a great deal of commitment but wrestling is a lifestyle. The commitment to wrestling directly parallels to the automotive industry, you get out of it what you put into it. Wrestlers have been very successful in this business because of their dedication and determination to be the best they can be.
Family is a word often used to describe the wrestling community. There is an unspoken bond between wrestlers, no matter what generation you competed in. It is an understanding, a brotherhood, a respect that is only truly understood by the men and women who lace up those shoes every day to be the best they can possibly be.
From one family to another the Hendrick family welcomes George Hickman, Frank Hickman, Colton Palmer, and Matt Moley.

Hendrick Automotive Group Contributes to NCM Motorsports Park; Track Designer Hired

The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park project recently got a major boost.  NASCAR great, Rick Hendrick, through the Hendrick Automotive Group, is making a $100,000 contribution to the NCM Motorsports Park. As owner of Hendrick Motorsports, his teams have collected 10 Sprint Cup Series Championships and over 200 NASCAR victories. While Rick knows racing, he is also a great friend to the National Corvette Museum with a real interest in the Motorsports Park as a recreational and educational facility.

“The National Corvette Museum celebrates an American original and one of the most iconic cars ever made,” said Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group and owner of NASCAR’s Hendrick Motorsports. “Racing is in the Corvette DNA, so the addition of the Motorsports Park is an exciting next step for the NCM facility. Being associated with the track’s message of education and safety is something we’re proud of, and we look forward to taking some laps when it’s completed. The Museum is already a very special place for Corvette and racing enthusiasts, and this new project will grow that reputation even more.”

Museum Executive Director, Wendell Strode, is thankful for the support and all that it means.  “We are grateful for this generous contribution and thrilled by what this donation represents. Coming from one of the most successful individuals in NASCAR history, this is a real confirmation that all of our hard work, planning, and fundraising activity is beginning to get the attention of people who understand and appreciate the full potential of the NCM Motorsports Park. As we continue to move forward, we are confident that validations like this one will lead to increased involvement from sponsors, race teams, and motorsports organizations who will want to be a part of this exciting project.”

In other exciting news, Steve Crawford has been selected as the park’s track designer. Steve’s first track opened nearly 40 years ago, and since then he has designed the Thunderhill Motorsports Park in Willows, CA and more recently, The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, WA.

“We were immediately impressed by Steve’s initiative while still in the interview phase,” said Wendell. “He had already started coming up with sketches as soon as he saw the layout of the land that we had to work with. He was on board from the beginning with the idea of working with Corvette Racing to build in features from Le Mans, Watkins Glen and the Nurburgring.”

With the uniqueness of the track and special features recommended by Corvette Racing designed into it, the track can be used as a test facility for all of the American Le Mans and Grand Am teams. The possibility of some NASCAR teams using it for road course practice has also been discussed.

In addition to the track design and facilities, the close proximity to hotels, restaurants, shopping and such is also appealing to motorsports enthusiasts.

Steve plans to have the track design finished by the end of the year. He will then work with the Museum’s local civil engineering firm, DDS Engineering, to prepare bid documents for the track – a process which is expected to take two to three months to complete. Bid packages should be ready by the end of the first quarter of 2013.

“Of course, continued fundraising is the key issue that will influence whether we send those bid packages out and have our ground breaking in time for the Bash,” said Wendell.  “At this point we are still confident that this will happen but need individuals and clubs to keep the momentum going with donations of any amount. We had six new participants step forward to take part in our Buy an Acre Campaign during our last event. Each time someone steps up to do this, whether it is an individual, a club or organization, it not only gives us the ability to move forward financially, but it also shows prospective sponsors something about how much the Corvette community wants this track to happen. You built this world-class Museum, so your support of this track is a powerful endorsement to potential sponsors,” he added.

Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Hopes to Help Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA Score Big

Rick Hendrick Chevrolet teams up with Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA to help raise thousands of dollars for youth soccer program

 

Duluth/Buford, Sept. 5, 2012 – In the spirit of teamwork taught by youth sports, Rick Hendrick Chevrolet is teaming up with Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, pop-up nets, sport cones, scrimmage vests, t-shirts, a sponsorship check and an opportunity to help them raise funds.

 

Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity where one lucky recipient will win his or her choice of a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox or Cruze. Another lucky winner will receive a Home Entertainment Package.

 

Rick Hendrick Chevrolet and other Atlanta area Chevrolet dealerships are donating these prizes to participating leagues in the area. One-hundred percent of the proceeds collected from the fundraiser go directly to the leagues. The funds may be used in any way the league chooses. 

 

A one-time sponsorship check will be presented by Rick Hendrick Chevrolet to Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA. The league also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevy Youth Soccer Fundraiser.  Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and the league will keep 100% of the proceeds raised.  At the end of the fundraiser, there will be four winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Cruze vehicle of choice (up to $24,995 in value), and in each participating market there will be a secondary prize of a home entertainment center valued at $1,000.

 

Some leagues plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.

 

“We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much-needed funds for their league. We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season with Robert D. Fowler Family YMCA,” said Jeff Wessels, General Manager for Rick Hendrick Chevrolet.
