In Partnership with Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation2013 NASCAR Charlotte

Huntersville, NC. (June 13, 2014) – The Joey Logano Foundation and the Checkered Flag Foundation have teamed up by creating a program to coordinate with the industry-wide NASCAR: An American Salute campaign. An American Salute is a platform that rallies teams, tracks, fans, and partners to collectively honor active and retired service members and military families. Throughout the seven-week span between May 25th and July 5th, teams, tracks, partners and fans show their thanks through various activities on and off the track. The industry has the opportunity to collectively express our reverence, respect, and gratitude to the millions of members of the United States Armed Forces for the sacrifices they have made in defending our nation.

Today, the Joey Logano Foundation and the Checkered Flag Foundation launch the Honor Your Military Hero program. Fans are encouraged to visit: and tell us about someone in their life who has served in the military and is in need of a second chance. Submissions will be accepted online until Sunday, June 22nd at 6pm.

The Joey Logano Foundation will announce the military hero who will be granted the $5,000 donation on Monday, June 23rd. The chosen hero will also receive a VIP trip for themselves and one guest to the conclusion of the NASCAR: An American Salute campaign at Daytona International Speedway’s Coke Zero 400. Trip includes travel (up to $1,500), hot passes, driver meet and greets, and entry to The Troops Welcome Center Presented by Coca-Cola for all active duty military, veterans and their families.
