MWR cars bring awareness to storm victims
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR’s Michael Waltrip hopes to bring attention to the needs of those affected by the Oklahoma tornadoes at the Coca-Cola 600 this weekend.
The three Sprint Cup cars of Michael Waltrip Racing will carry decals of Feed The Children, an Oklahoma City-based group who’s providing food and resources to victims of the tornadoes. Michael Waltrip said he wanted to help out when he saw the devastation caused by the storms.
MWR cars driven by Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer and Mark Martin will carry the decals in Sunday’s race. Michael and Darrell Waltrip held a charity golf tournament last year and Feed The Children was among the beneficiaries.
Michael Waltrip said the Coca-Cola 600 was a great forum to reach millions of race fans about those in need.
