By: Tim Thomas | @TimThomas1996 | Apr 05, 2020

We are hoping you are staying safe and staying home here at The Tech Lunch Pail as we all work together to flatten and destroy the coronavirus curve. We also understand that there are plenty of people struggling and have some big news for how we hope to give back and support those in need.

The Tech Lunch Pail will be an associate sponsor for the Garrett Smithley #51 car for at least today's eNASCAR Pro Invitational Race at the Virtual Bristol Motor Speedway. As part of our sponsorship, we're also inviting you to join us in the TLP Challenge to raise money for The Tech Lunch Pail.

Here at The Tech Lunch Pail, we will be donating money to two charities: one in the Roanoke Valley, the Roanoke Rescue Mission, and Garrett Smithley's charitable choice, Herobox.

Our donation will be based on Smithley's performance in this Sunday's race and will go as follows.

  • $1 for every lap Smithley completes both in the 50-lap heat race and 150-lap main event.
  • $2 for every lap Smithley leads in either the heat race and main event.
  • $500 if Smithley wins the main event.

As part of our donation, we are challenging you to join us in giving back to a local charity of your choice if you are able to do so. If you do want to join us in this pledge, please let us know either by tweeting at us and/or messaging us while we also encourage you to use the #TLPChallenge.

If you do, we'll add your name and charity of choice to a list on this page. You can also give more or less than the amount that we're pledging to give based on Garrett's performance in today's race.

Race coverage starts at 1pm on FOX and FOX Sports 1 with two 50-lap heat races followed by the 150-lap main event. This is the third event in the NASCAR iRACING Pro Invitational Series.
