The Kulwicki Driver Development Program (www.KulwickiDDP.com) is a program that has been established by the family of late NASCAR Champion Alan Kulwicki to help worthy drivers achieve their dream. The program is also designed to keep Alan Kulwicki’s memory and legacy alive.
The program will provide “help” in several different ways. It will provide financial support to cover operational expenses, transportation costs, entry fees and assistance with necessary equipment. It will also provide other resources such as sponsorships, publicity and business education, industry networking and relationship building.
KDDP is aimed at the “grass roots racer.” The objective is to identify and assist a driver in the earlier stages of his or her career. A great example would be identifying and offering assistance to Alan Kulwicki when he was a regular competitor on the short track in Slinger, Wis., before he moved on to the ASA Series. With the relationships the KDDP will be building, it could definitely become a “pre-cursor” that would feed drivers onto driver development programs that already exist.
