Character Counts! to Join Brett Moffitt and Jay Robinson Racing

Jay Robinson Racing announced today that CHARACTER COUNTS!®, a character-building initiative of the Josephson Institute, will be the primary partner of the No. 66 Toyota driven by Brett Moffitt in next week's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The race will mark the character development program's first partnership in motorsports.

CHARACTER COUNTS! is an community-based and educational program that reaches more than seven million kids nationwide each year. Founded in 1992, the non-profit organization is utilized in schools across America to teach ethics and values by using the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Scott Raecker, Chairman and CEO of the Josephson Institute said, "We are proud to partner with Brett Moffitt and Jay Robinson Racing. Brett grew up in Iowa schools that focused on the Six Pillars of Character and Brett

lives those values in his daily life. Through Brett

and NASCAR we believe there is a great opportunity to make even more people aware of the life changing impact of CHAREACTER COUNTS!"

Sunday will mark Moffitt's third career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start and his first race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Moffitt,

21, of Grimes, Iowa, made his first career Sprint Cup start with Jay Robinson Racing at Dover International Speedway in May, finishing 22nd. He also competed for Michael Waltrip Racing in June, posting a 34th-place finish at Michigan International Speedway.

"I'm proud to bring a new sponsor into NASCAR, but also to promote an educational program that is changing kids' lives," said Moffitt. "It wasn't that long ago that I was sitting in a classroom and I know how important life lessons are. CHARACTER COUNTS! goes beyond the textbook. Through this program we're going to reach even more educators and more students.

"To race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the dream of any kid who's ever gotten behind the wheel of any type of race car. Jay [Robinson] is helping make that happen for me. It's just incredible."

Michael Waltrip Racing announced last month that they had signed Moffitt to a multi-year driver contract. He's a nine-time winner in K&N Pro Series East competition and serves as a test driver for Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and MWR.

A recently-formed partnership between Jay Robinson Racing and MWR allows the No. 66 to compete in all NASCAR Sprint Cup races with Joe Nemechek and Moffitt as drivers. Michael Waltrip raced the Toyota at Daytona and Talladega while Jeff Burton raced in Las Vegas and New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
