Stock-car driver Brian Keselowski will pilot the No. 52 Wreaths Across America stock-car sponsored by TruckerFan.com in this year’s 55th annual Daytona 500. The race is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 24, at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL.
According to the Wreaths Across America website, Keselowski, the team owner of Brian Keselowski/HMR Motorsports will carry a fully sponsored red, white and blue, stars and stripe paint scheme highlighting the Wreaths Across America logo. Brian is the brother of Brad Keselowski, NASCAR’s 2012 Sprint Cup Champion.
Wreaths Across America founder Morrill Worcester says he has been a race fan for 50 years.
“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,” he said in a recent WAA newsletter. “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.”
The WAA newsletter also quoted Keselowski, who said he was a small NASCAR team, but will “give it all he’s got” at Daytona.
The car will also be decaled with the text word and number to donate $10 directly to Wreaths Across America through “Give By Cell.” Text the word HONOR to 20222 to help raise awareness and funding for the federally licensed 501(c) 3 nonprofit.
In 2012, Wreaths Across America placed more than 400,000 wreaths on the graves of fallen American veterans.
