Bristol, TN…March 15, 2012— American Majority, sponsor of driver Jason Bowles and MacDonald Motorsports #81 Nationwide Series car, is proud to announce a special partnership with the national non-profit organization, Honor and Remember, Inc. to promote a new national symbol honoring our fallen service members. The American Majority/MacDonald Motorsports Nationwide car #81 will feature this new emblem of remembrance throughout the 2012 season.
Honor and Remember was founded on Memorial Day 2008 to promote the adoption of a new, nationally-recognized flag to serve as a constant reminder of the brave men and women in uniform who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
“American Majority’s NASCAR program this season is about encouraging all Americans to help Keep America Free,” states Ned Ryun, President of American Majority, a leading national conservative grassroots training organization. “No group of Americans has exemplified that spirit more than our service members who gave their lives for our freedom. It is a privilege for us to help promote this new symbol of American courage and sacrifice.”
Honor and Remember flags will also fly as part of the American Majority #81 booth at Bristol this weekend and at more than a dozen tracks across the country as part of their national Pledge to Vote initiative.
“I am truly humbled by American Majority’s willingness to help us in this noble cause,” states George Lutz founder of Honor and Remember, whose son George Anthony Lutz II was killed by a sniper’s bullet while on patrol in Fallujah, Iraq in 2005. “Having this emblem displayed on a NASCAR race car will help raise awareness with millions of patriotic fans who understand the importance of honoring the fallen and supporting our Gold Star families.”
Lutz has traveled more than 25,000 miles to all 50 states in order to urge the display of the flag by governments, businesses and individuals. He has delivered personalized versions of the flag to hundreds of families who have lost a loved one in military service, regardless of generation.
To date, more than 20 states have either adopted the flag or endorsed its use. Supporters of the flag can visit www.HonorandRemember.org to sign a petition urging lawmakers in Washington to support H.R. 546, which would make the flag a federally recognized, perpetual tribute to the lives lost in service to our country.
