NASCAR's Jeff Gordon Drives in Support of the National Law Enforcement Museum

May 03, 2007  | 

As NASCAR frontrunner Jeff Gordon looks to extend his points lead during this Saturday's race at Richmond International Raceway, he will also be encouraging racing fans to honor America's law enforcement heroes by supporting the National Law Enforcement Museum.

Gordon's #24 DuPont Chevrolet will carry a banner on the rear TV panel featuring a special Website and toll-free telephone number in support of the Museum, during the "Crown Royal Presents the Jim Stewart 400" race under the lights on May 5.

A major supporter of the planned National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C., DuPont has created the Website, along with a toll-free number, 1-877-COP-9606, to help raise awareness of the Museum and encourage contributions to the public phase of the Museum's fundraising campaign.

In addition to the banner on his race car, Mr. Gordon also filmed a short video and public service announcements encouraging fans to support the Museum. These will be shown throughout Saturday's race and during a special pre-race ceremony that will include Jim Weigand, Global Business Director of DuPont's Advanced Fiber Systems, Henrico County (VA) Police Sergeant Mark Banks, and Craig W. Floyd, chairman and CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

With groundbreaking scheduled for the summer of 2008, the National Law Enforcement Museum will be the largest and most comprehensive museum of its kind when it opens in 2011. The 90,000-square-foot, underground facility is being designed as a high-tech, interactive experience that will feature driving and use-of-force training simulators, a forensics lab, and a 911 emergency call center. The Museum will be located in downtown Washington, D.C., adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
