The KDDP is a program that has been established by the family of late NASCAR Champion Alan Kulwicki to help worthy drivers along the way in reaching their dream…while at the same time keeping Alan Kulwicki's memory and legacy alive.
The program will provide "help" in several different ways. It will provide financial support in covering operational expenses, transportation costs, entry fees and assistance with necessary equipment. It will also provide other resources such as sponsorship, publicity and business education and 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 have been identifying and offering assistance to Alan Kulwicki when he was a regular competitor on the short track in Slinger, Wisc., and in the process of moving on to the ASA Series. However, with the relationships the KDDP will be building, it could definitely become a "pre-cursor" that could help "feed" drivers on to the driver development programs that already exist.
