Through the Tribute 2 Veterans presented by Autotrader program, friends and family of former service members can submit a veteran’s name to be featured on the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Mustang during the March 2020 race weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Brad Keselowski will pilot the vehicle, and Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation and Autotrader announced the return of the Tribute 2 Veterans presented by Autotrader program that honors America’s heroes.
Since 2010, Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation has supported hundreds of organizations and individuals to help veterans and first responders during their road to recovery.
“Carrying the names of veterans to Victory Lane on my Autotrader Ford Mustang last year was one of the highlights of my 2019 season,” Keselowski said in a news release.
He continued, “I’m incredibly thankful to have sponsors like Autotrader that provide my family and the Checkered Flag Foundation the opportunity to honor veterans in unique ways. We are always looking for creative opportunities to honor the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Featuring veterans’ names on my car again next season at Atlanta Motor Speedway is just one small way for us to honor these heroes, while also raising funds that will allow the foundation to continue its mission.”
To be part of the campaign, the tax-deductible donation cost is $100 per submission.
Proceeds benefit the Checkered Flag Foundation, and each veteran submission will receive a personalized certificate and a commemorative poster of the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Mustang displaying the names of the veterans and a letter of thanks from Keselowski.
Submissions of veterans’ names are accepted through Dec. 31.
