Friends of NRA continues sponsorship of Levine Family Racing's #95 car
Fairfax, Virginia - Earlier this month the Texas Friends of NRA sponsored a spot on Scot Speed's #95 car just in time for the NASCAR's NRA 500 race.
But the race at Texas Motor Speedway was not to be the Friends of NRA car's only appearance.
This May 5, while the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits is being held in Houston, you'll be able to see the car in the Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama - as long as it qualifies.
The car is a part of Leavine Family Racing, a two-team Texas-based operation in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and ARCA Racing Series owned by Bob and Sharon Leavine.
Although based out of Tyler, Texas, LFR's team shop is in Concord, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte Motor Speedway’s turn two.
Before the NRA 500, NRA Southern Regional Director Al Hammond told us "this will pay big dividends for our program not only in Texas but with NASCAR fans nationwide." Turns out he was right and we're only just seeing the beginning with this next race at Talladega.
Friends of NRA is a nationwide fundraising program run NRA's General Operations Division. Started in 1992, the program has raised more than $200,000,000 that goes to the support America's shooting sports. Monies raised at these events help fund, among other things, youth firearm safety and education programs, hunter education, women’s training seminars, and wildlife conservation efforts.
Whether you're spending your Cinco de Mayo at the NRA convention, at home, or any place else, be sure to catch a glimpse of the #95 on your local Fox station.
