WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center will be a beneficiary of donations made during the “Race or Ride BBQ,” presented by the Professional Bull Riders Inc. (PBR) and Richard Childress Racing (RCR).

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, Feb. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the RCR Museum in Welcome. It serves as a prelude to the 2010 PBR Winston-Salem Invitational and the 2010 NASCAR season.

Mauney, NASCAR legend Junior Johnson and his son, race driver Robert Johnson, Lexington barbecue provided by the RCR Museum, a wine tasting hosted by Childress Vineyards, and country music and giveaways provided by 104.1-FM WTQR.

Although the event is free and open to the public, in recognition of RCR’s famous No. 3 car, fans can donate $33 and receive VIP access to the event for 33 special guests. Donations will benefit the Childress Institute and the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids charity.
