Fastenal To Honor Active And Retired Military Workforce With Three Car Salute


For the third straight year, Fastenal will display appreciation for our nation’s military forces through its sponsorship of the entire Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) fleet at the Coca-Cola 600. The patriotic paint schemes that will grace the racecars of Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. represent the organization’s gratitude to military personnel who are a part of the Fastenal Blue Team as well as all other men and women who have served our country.

In 2013, Fastenal held an essay contest for its active and retired military employees, selecting three winners who were individually featured on the hoods of the No.99, No.17 and No.16 cars. This year, 630 Fastenal employees who have represented our great nation will see their names under the lights of Charlotte Motor Speedway as they are proudly displayed on the hood of the No.99.

“Behind every one of those names is a story of tremendous sacrifice,” said Fastenal President Lee Hein. “It’s our small way of paying tribute to their service and letting them know that we couldn’t be more proud to have them as members of the Fastenal Blue Team.”

Twelve of the 630 veterans highlighted on the hood of Edward’s car will be in attendance at Charlotte Motor Speedway this Memorial Day weekend for a behind-the-scenes experience at the 55th running of the Coca-Cola 600. Former Army Sergeant Robert Thompson, who now works out of Lincolnton, N.C. as a Fastenal Sales Associate, is proud to be part of an organization that recognizes its large military workforce.

“It feels pretty awesome that I work for a company like Fastenal that honors, respects and values veterans,” said Thompson. “In the short time that I have been with Fastenal I have come to find out that there are a lot of veterans at the company. They realize that the military gives their personnel a wide assortment of skills. It’s great to see that Fastenal understands that and hires us to perform those skills.”

In addition, Fastenal would like to acknowledge Roush Fenway Racing employee and veteran Randy Fuller by including his name on the hood as an honorary Blue Team member. Fuller, who served in the Air Force for 26 years and retired as a Chief Master Sergeant, has been the Media Relations Manager for Edwards for over a decade.

This is Fastenal’s third season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as the primary sponsor for Edwards in the No. 99 Ford Fusion.
