Hockey + NASCAR drivers = Human Bowling ???

    NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Ryan Newman, Joey Logano and Clint Bowyer will headline the Charlotte Checkers’ annual "Race Night," which will take place Friday at 7 p.m. ET at Time Warner Cable Arena in uptown Charlotte. 

   The drivers will take part in an autograph session before the game and the human bowling intermission activity after the first period. Additionally, Newman will participate in a post-game jersey auction.

   The Checkers will wear specialty race-themed jerseys which will be up for auction live after the game. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Rescue Ranch, Hospitality House of Charlotte and the Isabella Santos Foundation.

   The first 2,500 fans through the door will receive a Checker cowbell and the first 5,000 fans will receive a Bojangles' mystery card worth $1 to $100.

  1. Cool. I go to Providence Bruins, Manchester Monarchs, Worcester Sharks, etc. games and these Human Bowling shows during intermissions are funny, plus the hockey itself is great. LOVE the American Hockey League.

  2. BTW the Checkers take on the Oklahoma City Barons, the AHL club of the Edminton Oilers. The Barons are 16-20-6 and are currently 4th in the Western Division with 38 points; the Checkers are 20-19-1 and third in the Western Division at 41 points; both are way behind the Texas Stars (26-11-5, 57 points) and the Abbotsford Heat (26-14-2, 54 points).
