LOS ANGELES (May 15th, 2012) - Mechanix Wear joins NASCAR Unites - An American Salute, a patriotic initiative bringing the power and passion of the entire sport together to honor the United States military and their families. The industry-wide initiative is an opportunity for fans, drivers, teams, tracks, and sponsors to unite and improve the lives of military families in need across the nation.
Mechanix Wear salutes our nation's heroes with the development of the limited Original® Patriot Glove. NASCAR teams and officials will show their red, white and blue with the limited edition Patriot Glove, starting and ending at two traditional NASCAR events held at Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 26-27, Memorial Day Weekend) and Daytona International Speedway (Independence Day Weekend, July 5-7).
The limited edition Original® Patriot Glove will be available May 18th exclusively at www.mechanix.com for $24.99 (Sizes S-XXL) with a portion of each glove sale going to NASCAR Unites - An American Salute.
"The entire NASCAR community has a long history of recognizing the efforts of the men and women who serve in our Country's military," said NASCAR President Mike Helton. "With this effort, we continue to rally the NASCAR industry to collectively express our gratitude to those who serve our country and their families. This program will reinforce our sport's commitment to the United States Military while also raising funds to help support military families."
