NASCAR Driver Features NLEOMF Paint Scheme

November 05, 2010  | 

Baker Curb Racing and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund are partnering to raise awareness for the law enforcement community and those who have died in the line of duty with a special paint scheme on Alex Kennedy's No. 27 Ford Fusion for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday.

The Memorial Fund logo will adorn both the hood and lower quarter panels of the team's No. 27 Ford Fusion and the organization's URL, LawMemorial.org, will appear on the upper quarter panels, decklid and television panel.

"I had the privilege of attending the groundbreaking gala for the National Law Enforcement Museum a few weeks ago and we are honored to be running this special paint scheme to help create awareness for such a wonderful organization," said Baker Racing owner Gary Baker. "By supporting the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund not only do you help honor law enforcement officers whose lives were taken in the line of duty, you help promote officer safety and the fight to keep officer fatalities on the decline."

The Memorial Fund is a principal organizer of the National Police Week observance each May and hosts a Candlelight Vigil at the Memorial each May 13 to formally dedicate the names of fallen heroes added to the Memorial's Walls and honor all law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In addition, the Memorial Fund maintains the most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research into officer fatality trends and issues, and serves as an information clearinghouse.

"We could not be more pleased with Baker Curb's dedication to the law enforcement profession," said Craig W. Floyd, chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. "This paint scheme honors the sacrifice America's law enforcement heroes make every day to protect our communities and keep us safe."
