The cars design carries the names of 12,548 Lowes employees who are military veterans or reservists. The names are showcased on the cars hood and decklid. The remaining paint scheme was inspired partly by Knaus who worked with Lowes to create the patriotic-themed car to help honor the military. For some reason those patriotic schemes we used to run back home have always stuck in my mind, said Knaus. They were special and meant something to us. Last year a serviceman approached me at Pocono and told me how much the paint schemes Lowes has during Memorial Day weekend meant to those that serve. So I really wanted to work with Lowes and the team to create an extra-special one this year.
Knaus, who got his start in racing by working with his fathers team in Rockford, Ill., used images of the red, white and blue schemes his father drove to help develop the concept for the Memorial Day weekend car. In support of the Memorial Day holiday, Lowes will offer a 10% discount to all active, reserve, honorably discharged, and retired military personnel and their immediate families. In addition, a special page has been set up on LowesRacing.com giving fans the opportunity to thank the military members who mean the most to them by posting photographs and stories of themselves, friends or family members on the site. Lowes employees also may visit the site to locate the placement of their name on the car.(Lowe's Racing), see images of the scheme on Jayski's #48 Team Schemes page.
... sure beats okra, eh?
It’s gonna be a great day of racing. I’m in the Bubba Q planning trailer workin on the menu already...
Thanks for the ping.
ON Sunday, do I understand that we have a Racing Tripleheader?
The Grand Prix of Monaco in the AM?
OMG, my eyes will be tweaked to the left!
Tork stole my tagline, again.
My eyes will be red from the smoke of a P.I.G. pork picnic in the smoker and a couple dozen chickon wangs on the coals. I’m fixin to put 27” on the deck so I can watch while I grill... prolly oughta go look at laptops, huh.
Prolly go over to my son in law’s. He’s got a fabulous outdoor BBQ/kitchen setup. It’s covered and he brings out his big screen. It’s close enough to the pool you can watch the grandkids and the occasional babe, Lots of room to lounge with the laptop too.
LOL!! Don’t get dizzy!
I’ll be watching the Monaco GP and Indy. I’m not really into NASCAR anymore.
