Marine Veteran Danny Garcia to begin "Honor Walk 2020" benefitting "America Salutes You"
GAFFNEY, SC (June 11, 2020) - The partnership between JD Motorsports w/ Gary Keller and Market Scan for Mike Wallace's No. 0 Chevrolet at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 4 has an American patriotic purpose.
Market Scan Information Systems, Inc., an automotive industry-leading automotive solutions and data provider based in Camarillo, California, announced the partnership in May for the inaugural NASCAR Xfinity Series race at IMS. Today's paint scheme reveal has American patriotism adorning the car in red, white and blue spirit prominently displaying the charities' logos.
The main purpose is to feature U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Danny Garcia's four-month long "Honor Walk 2020" initiative to raise funds for "America Salutes You". The "America Salutes You" collaboration kicks off on July 4th race weekend in Indianapolis where Garcia will begin his multi-state journey.
"To partner with JD Motorsports, Mike Wallace and Market Scan is going to be incredible for our causes," Garcia said. "The money raised through donations will benefit veterans, first responders and their families."
Kicking off this year's "Honor Walk" with this paint scheme on July 4 and during a NASCAR weekend is about as patriotic as you can get. The people who benefit from this need our help right now more than ever."
Garcia's walk during those four months include Indiana, Tennessee, Texas, Southeastern states, Eastern seaboard with large-scale stops in New Your City and Washington, DC. The walk ends on Oct. 29 at the Grand Ole Opry during the "America Salutes You" benefit concert.
"Making a return to racing partnering with Market Scan, supporting Danny Garcia and the two charities is incredible," said Wallace, who has not competed in a NASCAR event since 2015. "I love this country and all the good in our lives as Americans. When Rusty West (Co-founder and President of Market Scan) talked to me about supporting Danny's walk and the associated causes, I was on board immediately.
As racers, we are hyper focused on the racing aspect. For Indy, we can take our incredible paint scheme and put attention to what Danny is doing and how our fans can help fellow Americans."
"I am incredibly proud of how this initiative is going to help make a difference in the lives of many veterans and first responders," said West. "The race car looks fantastic and the plan is to share the patriotic look and feel with a lot of folks during Danny's four-month walk. The RV, which Danny will call home for 4 months, will also feature the design of the Chevy and will help shine a spotlight on Danny's walk and the charities, wherever he goes."
Garcia is a U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam War veteran, former law enforcement officer and ordained minister. He has been walking since 1996 taking 52 million steps on six continents.
The mission of "America Salutes You" is to raise awareness and funds for extraordinary wellness charities, assisting military and veterans. Those initiatives include promoting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' efforts to provide access, support and services that ensure veterans' health and quality of life.
Between July 4 and October 29, Garcia will travel in increments of 25 to 50 miles a day in phases. Stops will be made at City Halls, Veterans Affairs locations, first responder locations, fire stations, police stations, hospitals, and partner retail locations.
