Hickory, NC, June 25, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- In the wake of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses across the Nation are struggling to stay afloat. Small businesses are often referred to as the “heart of America” as they comprise more than 99% of all business in our Country. It’s no secret many are hanging on by a thread.
Mason Ludwig, a 17-year-old late model race car driver originally from Michigan, has a love for the USA and everything it stands for. He wanted to find a way to help spread the word about small businesses that were stricken by the closures of the COVID-19 epidemic. So, he created a YouTube video series called “Fueling Up America.” The series currently runs twice per week and each episode features different small businesses across the country. “It’s important that we support our local, small businesses. Any time I find a business that I like, a restaurant, store, or service, I’m happy to share my experience and spread the word to others,” says Ludwig. “I wanted to give back and do my part.
Mason is currently residing in North Carolina to further pursue his racing career. Racing was put on hold during the pandemic but that didn’t stop him from finding a way to help and finding other ways to continue to support his marketing partners and other small businesses. “Just because the racecar isn’t on the track, doesn’t mean I can’t still work for my partners and give back to the community. I’ve been working hard to stay on top of current marketing trends so I can offer more creative and effective ways of advertising to businesses while both on and off the track.”
“We are very proud of Mason for his patriotism and desire to help in a time of need. He could see the writing on the wall and realize that small businesses were going to be hurting after being shut-down for such a great period of time,” said Ludwig’s mom, Jaime Ludwig.
New episodes of “Fueling Up America” are published on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the popular YouTube social media platform.
