Fort Worth, Texas – Furthering the company’s commitment to America’s military and first responders, Patriot Mobile is donating the hood design for their sponsored number 15 car to Folds of Honor. This new design will be unveiled at the Texas Motor Speedway NASCAR Cup Series race September 24th.
“This new hood design will amplify the Folds of Honor branding and mission to more than 75,000 NASCAR fans in the stands and millions of viewers across America and worldwide,” said Patriot Mobile CEO, Glenn Story. “The hood is one of the most valuable advertising assets in NASCAR, and we want to lift up the Folds of Honor mission and encourage others to do so as well.”
Earlier this year, Patriot Mobile announced its sponsorship of Rick Ware Racing and veteran NASCAR driver JJ Yeley. In July, Patriot Mobile donated the hood to the movie “Sound of Freedom” for both the Atlanta and Pocono races to bring awareness to the human trafficking crisis. JJ Yeley and Rick Ware Racing are excited to partner with Patriot Mobile to bring awareness to these important causes.
“Not only am I so proud to promote Patriot Mobile due to our collective commitment to faith, family, and freedom,“ said JJ Yeley, “I’m honored to support America’s military and first responder families in this way. This is a very special donation to a nonprofit that truly helps families of our nation’s heroes.”
Founded in 2007 by Lt Col Dan Rooney, the Folds of Honor organization has provided more than 44,000 life-changing educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled military. In 2022, that mission expanded to support families of America’s first responders as well.
“Not only has Patriot Mobile supported Folds of Honor scholarships and sponsored our annual fundraising event, but their team members also volunteer,” said Lt Col Dan Rooney. “When Patriot Mobile called us and asked if we would accept this hood design donation, we were thrilled. NASCAR fans are patriotic Americans who support our military and first responders. We appreciate Patriot Mobile for giving Folds of Honor this visibility.”
