Why Team Universe?
The Texas State Natural Championships is a Team Universe Qualifier. Many people ask what that means. It means that if you place in the top 3 in Open Bodybuilding or the top 5 in Fitness, Figure, Bikini or Physique you qualify to compete in the NPC Team Universe.
The Team Universe is the only drug-tested National Level contest in the NPC. Overall winners at the Team Universe in Bodybuilding qualify for IFBB Pro Cards. The top 2 in each class in Fitness, Figure, Bikini and Physique at the Team Universe qualify for IFBB Pro Cards! At the 2013 Team Universe we had 20 competitors who qualified at either the Texas State Naturals or Texas Shredder Classic. Of those 20 athletes all finished in the top 15. 9 placed in the top 5. And, 5 of our athletes qualified for Pro Cards! We could not have been more proud of the Shredderbuilt family of athletes!
* ** For all athletes who qualify for the Team Universe at the Texas State Natural Championships, if you compete in the 2014 NPC Team Universe we will provide you with a Shredderbuilt- Team Universe warm up suit (but you have to let us know that you are entered in the TU).***
Victorious Val and the Cancer Crusaders
the Survivor Driver for
Pink, Fast ‘n’ Dirty, is a Rally Cross racing team that has joined forces with local organization, The Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC), to aid patients in the Central Texas area. Through their sponsors, they've acquired a race car, gussied her up, and are ready to hit the Texas Rally Sport circuit. They travel to Rally Cross events and make special appearances like Val’s recent book signing event to celebrate the release of her inclusion in the bestselling- book Chicken Soup for the Soul! The Pink, Fast ‘n’Dirty Crew is committed to help The Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) to raise funds aiding and supporting women in this area affected by this disease.
As many of you know in the Shredderbuilt and NPC Family, the year the Texas State Naturals was started by Dave Goodin and Diana Hurley (2011), Diana was diagnosed with late Stage 2 Breast Cancer. After having several surgeries and a double mastectomy, she was actively going through chemo when they put on the first show in Austin, November of that year. So, the Breast Cancer Resource Center is very close to their hearts, and is actually how she met Victorious Val. They are both, members of the Pink Ribbon Cowgirls, a wonderful support group within the BCRC.
This Pink Fast ‘N’ Dirty team is made up of the remarkable Frank Casey, the amazing Jack Bryant and the legendary Chip Cramer , and completed with a “survivor driver,” Victorious Val, who really cares about the community and seeks a fun, positive way to affect change. Through Rally Cross, a competitive and wildly fun timed raced on a dirt track, not only is Pink, Fast ‘n’ Dirty having a ball, they’re helping others too. With Pink, Fast ‘n’ Dirty 100% of fundraising and merchandise profits go to the BCRC. 1 in 8 women–and some men–are diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their lives. You may know someone fighting this battle right now, or perhaps you've fought it yourself. You may have lost a loved one or a friend to this illness. Now you can make a difference.
