BK Racing is excited to announce that the team will participate in an eight-week American Salute Campaign, starting at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina May 24th.
JJ Yeley, driver of the No. 23 Toyota, will run a special "We Salute You" scheme in honor of our fallen military Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fans can give $10 through the BK Racing website, and submit a fallen service member's name, and the name will appear on the hood and rear quarter panels of the No. 23 Toyota for the Coca-Cola 600. In addition, BK Racing will donate a portion of the proceeds back to Hope For The Warriors, a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans and military families.
"I am honored to be able to salute our men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, through NASCAR and our organization," said team owner Ron Devine. "I believe it's important to remember our military and their families. It's also great to be able to partner with an organization like Hope For The Warriors, who provide support and resources for our active military. I encourage everyone to get online, submit names, and help us say 'Thank You' to our servicemen and women."
"The names that BK Racing will be display on JJ Yeley's car are the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. They are the men and women whose names stay in our hearts and minds everyday, and especially in the month of May," said Travis Hanson, Hope For The Warriors, Senior Director of Sports and Recreation. "Hope For The Warriors is thankful to NASCAR fans for the honor and recognition they give to our service members, veterans and the sacrifice of our military families.
