CONCORD, N.C. (Dec. 13, 2012) – Tis the season to spread some holiday cheer and no one is better apt to accomplish that than Roush Fenway driver Greg Biffle. Biffle recently offered his services as a chauffeur to drive a lucky Roush Fenway employee to-and-from the company Holiday Party in his 1983 “Boss Hogg” style limo; decked out with long horns on the front and a custom horn that plays the Dukes of Hazard theme.
Roush Fenway employees purchased raffle tickets for the chance to have the NASCAR Champion cart them around for the evening, with all the proceeds going to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. The lucky winner was nine-year RFR employee Brian Steager, who works in the organization’s paint and body department. Overall Roush Fenway was able to raise over $2,000 for the great cause, helping the charity grant the holiday wishes of a few children this season.
“I had wanted to do something for a local family this holiday season and I thought it would be fun to raffle off a ride in this old limo,” said Biffle. “I saw it at an auto auction and thought it would be fun to drive around to events like this. We decided to raffle off a ride for a Roush Fenway employee to the company party this year and use the money to buy gifts for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. Roush Fenway agreed to match the proceeds. it was a lot of fun, went to a very worthy cause and hopefully we’ll do it again soon.”
And how did the Steagers rate Biffle’s performance as chauffer, rather than on the track?
“It was a very good ride,” said Steager. “We got there safe and sound and it was an excellent experience all the way around.”
