ATLANTA, June 12, 2020 – Autotrader has teamed up with Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation to honor America’s heroes for the NASCAR Cup Series race weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway on June 7, 2020. Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Mustang for Team Penske, launched the return of the Tribute 2 Veterans program to raise money for veterans during their road to recovery. This is the second year Autotrader is partnering with the Checkered Flag Foundation to honor these cherished American heroes.
During the most recent Tribute 2 Veterans campaign, from November 2019 to January 2020, friends and family of former service members submitted a veteran’s name to be featured on the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Mustang. Cox Automotive, parent company of Autotrader, also extended the invitation and encouraged employees from all Cox Enterprises, Inc. companies to submit names of veterans to be honored on the No. 2 Autotrader Ford Mustang. This year, the paint scheme will feature 70 veteran names submitted by Cox employees, and more than 175 veteran names in total. The proceeds for each submission benefited the Checkered Flag Foundation. READ MORE
