Brian  Keselowski  to  Race  Wreaths  Across  America  Car  Sponsored  by  TruckerFan.com  at  DAYTONA  500

No-52-Wreaths-Across-AmericaWHEELERSBURG,  Ohio  and  COLUMBIA  FALLS,  Maine – Feb.  5,  2013 – Stock-­‐Car  driver  Brian  Keselowski  will  proudly  pilot  the  #52  Wreaths Across America stock-car sponsored by TruckerFan.com in this year’s 55th annual “Great  American  Race ,” the  DAYTONA  500.

Keselowski,  the  team  owner  of  Brian  Keselowski/HMR  Motorsports  and  brother  Brad, NASCAR’s  2012  Sprint  Cup  Champion,  will  carry  a  fully sponsored  all-­‐American  red,  white  and  blue,  stars  and  stripe  paint  scheme  highlighting  the Wreaths Across America logo.  The  car  will  also  be  decaled  with  the  text  word  and  number  to  donate  $10  directly  to  Wreaths  Across  America  through  “Give By Cell.” Cell. Text  the  word  HONOR  to  20222  to  help  raise  awareness  and  funding  for  the  federally  licensed  501(c)  3  nonprofit.

“I’m truly honored to be a part of this,” said Keselowski. ” I wanted to go to Daytona this year but didn’t think we’d have enough funding, and then I received a phone call from a group of investors who are also veterans. The group, named TruckerFan.com, wanted to pay for the sponsorship for Wreaths Across America at Daytona and asked me if I’d represent them.”

“I’ve been a race fan for fifty years says Wreaths Across America founder Morrill Worcester. “This is truly exciting and I love the look of the car. We want to reach and inspire an entire country and NASCAR is a great way to do that. The people who stepped up to do this have been working hard to put this together out of their own pockets. I think it’s a testimony to the American spirit.”

Keselowski added, “This is a blessing and truly an honor to represent such a worthwhile organization. We’re a small team, but we’ll give it all we got at Daytona for our fallen heroes in their memory. I hope everyone can take the time to go to WreathsAcrossAmerica.org to witness this incredible mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach, and the support they receive from people all over the country who love our freedom.” Keselowski went on to say that as of now, there is only enough funding provided from the investors for one race, but efforts are being made to secure more races with Wreaths Across America, including apparel and merchandise sales for additional funding.

Wreaths Across America, whose mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach, celebrated their 21st anniversary in 2012 by placing over 400,000 wreaths on fallen American veterans graves across the country, including 110,000 at Arlington National Cemetery on December 15th. Congress had recently passes a “National Wreaths Across America Day” celebrated each December on the same day where 250,000 volunteers at 815 locations in all 50 states including Arlington, Virgina and foreign soil. Over 80 volunteer trucking companies and drivers deliver the wreaths to their destinations. The fresh Maine balsam wreaths represent honor and remembrance from a grateful nation. The thousands of volunteers who place wreaths each year stop and reflect, giving thanks to each individual who served for our country.
