Special Forces Charitable Trust joins Front Row, Love's for Daytona
Front Row Motorsports driver Landon Cassill brings the No. 34 Love's Ford Fusion back to Daytona International Speedway for the second time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. With Independence Day in our hearts and on our minds, we're humbled to bring awareness to Special Forces Charitable Trust this weekend with a unique military paint scheme.
"We had a good Love's Travel Stops Ford in February in Daytona, and we had a good start to the season in the 500, even with some damage. Love's is back this weekend with a military paint scheme for Independence Day -- it's camouflage and pays tribute to the Special Forces Charitable Trust, an organization that supports U.S. Army Special Forces.
Cassill brings his experience at Daytona from earlier this year, but nighttime racing is a different ball game.
"There's a huge difference between racing at night and racing during the day at Daytona. Even if it's hotter in July, it's the direct sunlight on the track that drives the temperature up for the February race. We're definitely anticipating a lot of handling to come into play this week."
Watch Cassill take on Daytona in the No. 34 Love's Ford at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on NBC. And if you're road tripping to the track, Cassill shares a little pit stop tip. :-)
"This race is a great event every year, and we're happy to have Love's on board again," Cassill said. "There's a Love's near the track, so everyone should stop there for your fuel and snacks and whatever you need for the race. I'm sure I'll be stopping at least once sometime this weekend."
