“As Americans gather in back yard BBQ’s this Labor Day and celebrate the upcoming school year, the return of hunting season, and the work ethic which makes America great, we wanted one race that focuses entirely on the life’s work of the American Warrior,” said Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president. “This is a labor of patriotism and gratitude. As a tribute to these wonderful people, the NRA and Speedway Motorsports came together to make possible the NRA American Warrior race.”

Shooting sports and motor sports represent our American heritage and naturally complement each other in celebrating the American Warrior. The motor sports are as uniquely American as the Second Amendment, and the NRA is proud to stand alongside Speedway Motorsports in serving our combined community of gun-owners and NASCAR fans.

Representative of this large community is legendary NASCAR team owner and current NRA board member, Richard Childress. In addition to being one of NASCAR’s most successful team owners, Childress is also an accomplished hunter and dedicated conservationist. Childress was elected to his first term on the NRA Board of Directors in 2009. The NRA is honored to have the support of Richard Childress for the NRA American Warrior 300.

Also supporting the event is NRA Board Member and Fox News Contributor, Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret.). Lt. Col. North is the author of the American Warrior magazine feature Frontlines which offers never-before-seen footage and reports with American heroes. This magazine is a feature of a new class of sponsored NRA membership, called “NRA Life of Duty.” This initiative includes a state-of-the-art online network designed for those men and women who make their living defending the American way of life.

To take part in this offer, go to or text “Warrior” to 64274. If you're in Atlanta, or at least in driving distance, how can you not jump at the chance to see the likes of Elliott Sadler, Austin Dillon, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Danica Patrick race in the title chase?
