“We are thrilled to collaborate with Operative Talent as the official charity of the Triple Crown of Rodding,” said Gary Case, event director of the Triple Crown of Rodding. “Their commitment to automotive education aligns perfectly with our vision to promote knowledge sharing and skill development within the industry. Together, we aim to create an immersive and educational experience for our attendees, ensuring the longevity and growth of the hot rod and truck community.”
As part of the fundraising initiative, Operative Talent will be hosting a sweepstakes to raffle off a ‘69 Camaro named “TALENT”, the first in a series of projects to help youth participate in the industry with hands-on experience. The proceeds from the sweepstakes will be used to fund programs across the country designed to help attract and nurture a new generation of talented individuals.
“TALENT” will be on display, having been built by young individuals wishing to showcase their talents while looking for an opportunity to further themselves with a career in our industry. It will be given away as a grand prize to one lucky winner on site at the 2024 Triple Crown of Rodding event.
