MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 1, 2014) – NAPA AUTO PARTS enters the month of July ready to give back in a big way during its third annual “Get Back and Give Back” initiative with the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. And this Friday night when Chase Elliott races at Daytona International Speedway, it’s the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund that will be showcased on his No. 9 NAPA Chevrolet.

In the month of July NAPA will offer a rebate of $25 to each consumer who buys a new battery, alternator, or starter. Each consumer will have the choice of donating a portion or all of the $25 rebate back to the not-for-profit Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and NAPA will donate a $1 per each redeemed rebate. Additionally, consumers will receive a FREE NAPA Patriotic Cap with any $25 purchase at participating NAPA stores while supplies last.
Also debuting this week and running the entire month of July are two military-themed NAPA television commercials – the first, a 60-second ad entitled “Navy Veteran” and the second, a 30-second ad called “Broken Down Marine.”
Elliott, who is just four points behind Elliott Sadler in the NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings, will carry the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway this Friday night for the Subway Firecracker 250 (7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2). Elliott debuted there earlier this year with a 15th-place finish.
Elliott enters the weekend leading the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings with a 40-point advantage over Ty Dillon.
Driver Quotes | Chase Elliott
On the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund:
“I’m honored to have the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund aboard the NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevy at Daytona this week. The men and women who fight for us each day have my full respect. I cannot wait to meet the NAPA Honorary Pit Crew member who has served in our country’s military and thank him for all he has done. It says a lot about the company (NAPA) and what they stand for to partner with such a tremendous cause. It shows the respect NAPA has for its country and the men and women who fight for our freedom each and every day.”
On Daytona International Speedway:
“I’m just pumped to have the opportunity to race at Daytona on the weekend of the Fourth. It’s always been one of my favorite races to watch growing up around the sport. The first two restrictor-plate races haven’t been very good on my part so hopefully I can learn from them and improve this trip.”
