The NASCAR Foundation will partner with JD Motorsports and Xfinity Series driver Colby Howard for this weekend’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.
“The opportunity to partner with great initiatives such as The NASCAR Foundation and Project Hope Foundation really means a lot to me,” Howard said in a media release. ” Recipients of the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award have made big strides in changing lives of many people through their charitable work, and I am proud to represent the four nominees on the hood of my No. 15 Chevrolet. I encourage everyone to learn more about these special individuals and vote for their favorite candidate to win the award.”
The hood of the car will feature the four nominees of the 10th annual Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award.
