Golden Corral Returns as Sponsor of TBR: Golden Corral returns for their second race of the 2016 season with Tommy Baldwin Racing, driver Regan Smith, and a brand new car design. The car design features a new bold color scheme and the logos of two charitable organizations – Camp Corral and DAV (Disabled American Veterans). Golden Corral supports both of these organizations as a way to honor our nation’s men and women in uniform.

Founded by Golden Corral, Camp Corral is a free, one-of-a-kind summer camp for children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members. Over 10,000 children have been served at Camp Corral and the program has expanded to 21 camps in 19 states.

Smith: “This is a race I always circle on the calendar, I enjoy the challenges that Talladega Superspeedway presents for a driver, spotter and team. To start the season at Daytona, we finished 8th and celebrated with a Top-10 Kids Eat Free Monday at Golden Corral, we’d love to do that again this week!”
