(Palm Beach FL) -- The Palm Beach Police Foundation has forged a strategic alliance with TOBC Racing, one of the country’s premiere professional motorcycle racing teams, at the 78th Annual Daytona 200 on March 16, 2019 at Daytona International Speedway.
Racing enthusiast, Michael Belisle, the Palm Beach Police Foundation’s Second Vice President, paved the way with TOBC Racing owner Michelle Lindsay, and team member Danny Elsick, the third rider ever to win four Daytona 200 championships, so that the Foundation’s logo would emblazon the TOBC team’s uniforms. Signage with the Foundation logo will also be displayed on tractor trailers at the speedway.
Belisle will travel from Palm Beach to Daytona by tractor trailer with 10 Palm Beach Police officers, who will be given pit passes and special access to the country’s largest and most historic motorcycle road racing competition. A quarter million people are expected to attend the 200 mile race, which was founded in 1937 when it was sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association.
Lindsay and Eslick said, “We're very excited about partnering with the Palm Beach Police Foundation, and very proud of their commitment to our men and women in blue."
“This is an opportunity for some of our police officers to enjoy time in the pit at the season’s most exciting motorcycle race, and meet some of their colleagues working in Daytona,” Belisle said.
