NASCAR fans get intro

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (BP)--Beyond the celebration on the track when Lee Pulliam won the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 200, there was rejoicing in heaven when three teenage girls were led to Christ that same night.

The SBC of Virginia (SBCV) sponsored the Friday night, July 1, race at South Boston Speedway, with the North American Mission Board defraying some of the sponsorship cost. The speedway's annual Fourth of July holiday weekend is a fan favorite and actually features three races (Pure Stock 50, Limited 100, Whelen Late Model 200) and fireworks afterward.

It was more than a one-time outreach, but part of a vision for churches to share Christ with thousands of race fans and continue the "God's Plan for Sharing" (GPS) statewide evangelistic effort begun in 2010.
