We are grateful to Dale and Gail Coyne and their entire racing team for making this incredible opportunity possible.” -Chief Scout Executive, Bob Mazzuca

Coyne & Boy Scouts Of America Team Up
Posted by James at 9:38 AM
In what could be a spectacular marketing opportunity, Dale Coyne Racing will run the #19 Boy Scouts of America Dallara in all 17 races on the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule. The agreement coincides with the 100 year anniversary of BSA. For most of 2009 DCR ran the #18, so it's unclear if this will be a 1-car team or if they'll return to their 2008 2-car program.
According to Boy Scouts of America "This is a multiyear program and will continue well past the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Boy Scouts of America". More information on the agreement may come out around 3pm est when DCR and BSA hold a conference call, stay tuned.
“This is a program with true heart. From watching a young boy’s first Pinewood Derby to helping him learn and apply the disciplines of science and technology using the excitement of IndyCar. The message we will convey is the significance of education and the value of preparing for a rapidly advancing hi-tech world.” -Team Owner, Dale Coyne
