FULL STORY Doing it for the kids AJ Allmendinger had lots of help to reach the pinnacle of stock car racing. Now, he's looking to pay it forward. The new driver of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Dodge for Penske Racing announced a new program that will see a deserving young karter receive a scholarship to race in the 2012 World Karting Association Zoom Zoom Nationals runing March 23-25 at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC. The scholarship winner will also be set to compete in the Rotax Grand Nationals in August and SKUSA SuperNationals in November. The scholarship prize winner will also receive media and management training from Walldinger Racing, Allmendinger's management firm. While racing his way through the ranks, Allmendinger's scholarships included prizes from the Skip Barber Racing School as well as being selected to compete in the 2001-02 New Zealand Formula Ford Championship as a winner of the Team USA Scholarship, run by longtime motorsports writer and broadcaster Jeremy Shaw. "I was very lucky, so many different times through my career, to get the support that I needed to keep racing and keep moving up," said Allmendinger. "So I feel very fortunate to be in a position to try to help someone else who is trying to do the same thing. I've had really great partners through my career and I think you can expect some exciting announcements as we go forward with this program. I am really looking forward to this being the start of something good for some young racer out there." Interested applicants ages 13-16 are asked to send their CV, racing credentials, photo, and short summary of their racing goals to: Karting@ajallmendinger.com. Deadline for entry is March 10.
