SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- On Saturday, Brad Keselowski was the first one to cross the finish line at the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, presented by Advance Auto Parts. In his Ford Fusion, Keselowski drove a head-to-head race against Joey Logano, Ryan Newman, Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr. The race in Kentucky is part of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, a professional stock car racing event consisting of 36 races that take place on tracks throughout the United States and is now in its 66th season. The current points leader of this year's cup is Jeff Gordon who has been competing in the Sprint Cup Series since 1992. The 2014 Series was opened at the Daytona International Speedway in February and will end at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November.
Before the final race in Miami, Ford EcoBoost 400, Arizona will host the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500, also known as Advocare 500, at the Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, about 15 miles outside of Arizona. Kevin Harvick is without a doubt the favorite driver for this race, after securing the first place in 2012 and 2013. The event will be attended by motor sports fans from near and far, all excited to be part of this thrilling race. One rather local fan is Jason Hope, a famous entrepreneur from Scottsdale, a city less than an hour away from the Phoenix International Raceway, who is planning to attend the action-packed event in November to watch the drivers compete. And he won't be the only one: Every year tens of thousands of spectators come to watch the drivers speed around the 500 laps that cover an overall distance of 312 miles.
Jason Hope is an Arizona native who was born and raised in Tempe. For his academic career he chose Arizona State University in Phoenix, where Hope graduated with a degree in finance and received an MBA from W.P. Carey School, before settling down in Scottsdale, Arizona. Today, Hope is known as a renowned entrepreneur, savvy investor, and dedicated philanthropist. Even though many of Hope's business endeavors take him out of Arizona and even out of the country, he has always felt a close connection to his home state and up to this day he spends a considerable amount of time and money in order to support local charities and communities.
Another cause that is very close to Jason Hope's heart and has been benefiting from his generous support is the SENS foundation, an organization that focuses on finding a new approach to anti-aging by concentrating on prevention of diseases related to aging rather than just treating them. The research efforts of SENS in the fields of Alzheimer's, as well as heart and lung disease play a significant role with regards to state-of-the-art medical innovations. Fascinated by the topic and convinced about the importance of the matter, Hope has been a fervent supporter and spokesperson for SENS for many years. In addition to helping SENS with their ongoing projects, Hope has worked with a multitude of organizations, amongst them the True Colors Fund, The Andre Agassi Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix, T Gen Foundation, The Tony Hawk Foundation, Family Health International, The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, Arizona Science Center and the Worldwide Orphans Foundation.
