BOONE, Iowa – Drivers winning heat races and displaying Casey’s General Store decals will generate donations of approximately $5,000 for Hope For The Warriors at the upcoming IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
The Ankeny-based company and new presentation sponsor will donate $10 for each heat race won by a Modified, Late Model, Stock Car, Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod or Sport Compact driver displaying a Casey’s decal between Sept. 2 and Sept. 6.
IMCA will match that amount. Depending on the number of heat races held, Hope For The Warriors President and CEO Robin Kelleher will accept a check for nearly $5,000 Saturday afternoon on the frontstretch at Boone Speedway.
Hope For The Warriors is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2006 that assists post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.
Founded in North Carolina, the organization maintains offices in New York, Washington D.C., Virginia, and Florida. Its representatives cover California, Texas, Illinois, and Wyoming, enabling Hope For The Warriors to maintain a nation-wide presence. Leadership of the organization still remains in the dedicated hands of military wives.
The official convenience store of IMCA, Casey’s has supported Hope For The Warriors with previous fundraisers, including a donation this summer of more than $390,000.
“IMCA is really proud to have built a genuine relationship with Hope For The Warriors and Casey’s General Stores and we couldn’t be more excited to help raise funds to support their mission of restoring self, family and hope,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “It will be an honor to have Robin Kelleher and Travis Hanson from Hope For The Warriors in Boone and be able to use the Super Nationals platform to raise awareness for military veterans and their families.”
