Warrior 50 To Back Jeffrey Earnhardt

NASCAR Nationwide series driver Jeffrey Earnhardt, grandson of racing legend Dale Earnhardt, will carry the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Seal on his #4 Chevy Camaro for the 2014 NASCAR season. 

 "The President of the United States signed a proclamation to honor Vietnam Veterans for the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, and we'll be delivering that message for their commemorative partner Warrior 50", said Jeffrey Earnhardt.  "This is a huge honor and I'm humbled to pay tribute to that generation of great Americans. We'll be racing to honor those who served during a challenging time in our history and I look forward to showing the NASCAR fans appreciation to our Vietnam Vets and their families." 

Warrior 50 is a non-profit organization that will be honoring our Vietnam Veterans at NASCAR tracks and in communities all across this country. "A great many Vietnam Vets and their families are enormous NASCAR fans so it makes this such an appropriate tribute.  The Warrior 50 NASCAR effort will be entirely funded by contributions from the people.  Every grateful American is encouraged to visit to make a tax deductible contribution towards this mission.  There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come!  These brave warriors fought and died for us and it's only fitting that we do this for them." said Rev Dr. Chuck Gass of Warrior 50.

Lieutenant General Claude "Mick" Kicklighter, US Army (Retired), Director, Department of Defense Office of Commemorations stated, "As Commemorative Partners, Jeffrey Earnhardt and his team join a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families for their service, valor and sacrifice.  From Daytona to Homestead and all NASCAR Nationwide Series locations in between, they will be honoring thousands of Vietnam Veterans in their hometowns during each race, for which we are extremely thankful." 

Earnhardt's first race featuring the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Seal will be Saturday, February 22 at 1:15 PM (EST) at Daytona International Speedway. For more information, email or visit:


  1. I think it is a very smart move for Jeffrey to endear himself to veterans.
    I hope he follows the lead of Dale Sr in the community and the sport.
    I am confident his father is proud and will help guide him.

    It is excellent to see him working with a public service organization as a sponsor.
    I would bet Big E is smiling about this. With the Earnhardt name it will be a huge benefit to the sponsor and hopefully it will help Jeffrey's status and stature as well.

    Saw this car on display in Salisbury NC at the veterans hospital the other day, it was blistering cold, but he was out shaking hands and signing autographs for folks. Good to see him working hard.
