Racing To Build Homes For Injured Veterans


Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) is partnering with Cargill Ground Beef and Homes for Our Troops to take a specially designed No. 6 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) car to Kentucky Speedway with two goals: raising money to build homes for severely injured military veterans, and winning Friday’s race on their behalf.

“I’m so proud to be racing in this Homes for our Troops car this weekend. A few weeks ago I had the chance to meet one of the guys who is living in one of these specially adapted homes and his story was just amazing,” said driver of the No. 6 car, Trevor Bayne. “For all they do for us and all they sacrifice, it’s great that we can work together with Cargill Ground Beef to find a way to help out some of the men and women who come home with these injuries.”

More than 1,600 U.S. military veterans have incurred life-altering combat injuries during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom, requiring specially adapted homes. Homes for Our Troops, a 501(c)3, non-profit, charitable organization created in 2004, has built more than 130 homes in 35 states and now builds approximately 40 homes annually.

This weekend’s Homes for Our Troops paint scheme is sponsored by Cargill Ground Beef. The company announced its partnership to raise money and awareness with the non-profit just two weeks ago.

“We appreciate and salute those service members who have served our nation to promote liberty and defend freedom in faraway places,” said Katie Blick-White, associate brand manager for Cargill Ground Beef in Wichita, KS. “We believe all veterans should be supported and acknowledged for the sacrifices they have made, and through this initiative we are delighted to be part of an effort to provide deserving military heroes with a place they can call home for themselves and their families.”

This Cargill ground beef initiative will include in-store ground beef promotions and burger grilling events throughout the United States over the next 12 months. Funds raised from various activities will be used for materials and labor to build homes that will be provided to qualifying injured veterans at no cost.
