Tim Bainey Jr. and the Aaron’s Dream Team Experience making a Big Impact with Fans Across the Country


Tim Bainey Jr. and the #00 Aaron’s Dream Team Experience has been a big hit with racing fans across the country throughout the first half of the 2008 season.


The Aaron’s Dream Team Experience has gone above and beyond anything ever seen at this level of a national touring team competing in the minor leagues of Nascar Racing.


Tim Jr. and his family owned team have always been known for their “Off-Track” ventures throughout the racing community. Their work in taking the USAR Hooter’s ProCup Series to the country’s racing fans has been quite a program over the last few years.


“This is what we love to do,” said Bainey Jr. “We’re so thankful to be able to work with the great people we have supporting us at Aaron’s. They understand what racing is all about, and even more importantly they understand how to make it a program that can truly reach out and make a connection with their customers.”


So far this year the Aaron’s Dream Team Experience has made stops in Indiana, a few in Virginia, several at events in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. And that list will continue to expand through North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Florida, and more as the year progresses.


“We know that our job is to #1 leave a great impression of the Aaron’s Brand in the hearts and minds of every racing fan that we meet – and that is what we strive to do,” said Bainey Jr.


“We get to do a lot of great events and promotions throughout the year,” he added. “We get to meet a lot of great people at Aaron’s Stores all over the country, but that’s just the beginning of it.”


“We do everything from the Children’s Miracle Network, to St. Judes, the American Cancer Society, the Navasky Foundation for Life, FARA, One Less Tear, Make a Wish, the Cancer Survivors Association, and so many other great organizations – I couldn’t name them all but, it’s just great to be able to do it. Nikki and I spent last weekend at a benefit for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh, and it was a great time for everyone involved.”


“We realize that we are very fortunate to be able to do what we do,” Tim Jr. added. “It’s amazing just how much you can do for others when you present things the right way, and put yourself to good use.”


“A lot of Nascar Fans will never get to meet Michael Waltrip or David Ruetimann, but they do get a chance to sit and talk with me, meet our team, have their picture taken with the Aaron’s Dream Machine, and watch us race at their local track.”


“We’re proud to be a part of the Aaron’s Family, and I think that what we do - makes racing fans proud to join us in being a part of it as well.”


Tim Bainey Jr. and the Aaron’s Dream Team Experience will be continuing on that tour this weekend with a visit to their homestate of Pennsylvania in events leading up to the “Hooter’s 250” at Jennerstown Speedway this Saturday Night.


Fans are invited to come out and meet Tim Jr. and the #00 Aaron’s Dream Team along with his teammate Brett Butler and the #99 Verve Energy Drink Team as they will be making an appearance at Aaron’s in Somerset, PA Friday Night from 3:00pm-6:00pm.
