Muscle Milk Pickett Racing's HPD ARX-03a will get a patriotic make-over for the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix on Saturday, July 7 as the car debuts custom red, white and blue wrapping for the Fourth of July holiday weekend race. The patriotic design will help raise awareness for the Muscle Milk Recovery Grant Program which will provide up to $250,000 in grants to help rebuild and revitalize high school athletic programs around the country.
“The Muscle Milk Pickett Racing team is proud to celebrate and recognize our desire to give back and do our part to make the biggest difference,” said Greg Pickett, founder of Muscle Milk and owner of Muscle Milk Pickett Racing. “The red, white and blue wrapping is going to look great on race day. We're excited that our team can help tell the story of the Muscle Milk Recovery Grant Program and the importance high school athletics play in the overall development of the next generation of student-athletes.”
More information about the program can be found on Muscle Milk's Facebook page. The program will award up to $25,000 per submission to programs that show a financial hardship outlined in the application process.
The team won its first overall race in ALMS competition at Lime Rock in 2010, with Pickett and Klaus Graf driving the team's Porsche RS Spyder.
The Muscle Milk HPD in its normal livery will be featured in an upcoming "In Focus" section of RACER Magazine. Click here to subscribe at a 30 percent reduced rate!
