CRESCO, Iowa (May 14, 2014) – As part of the NASCAR Race to Green™ campaign celebrated in the month of April, Featherlite donated 1,200 trees after all four Sprint Cup winners during this time period were also Featherlite trailer owners. Featherlite, the official trailer of NASCAR®, had pledged to donate 300 trees on behalf of any Sprint Cup winner that was also an owner of a Featherlite race transporter.
NASCAR this week announced that more than 180,000 trees are being planted in areas across the country, including those affected by natural disaster, a 20 percent increase from last year. NASCAR Race to Green is an annual month-long initiative that galvanizes teams, tracks, drivers, Official NASCAR Partners and fans to take action steps toward preserving and protecting the environment.
Other NASCAR partners who took part in the program included 3M, 5.11 Tactical, ACORE, American Ethanol, Chevrolet, Coca-Cola, Coors Light, Ford Motor Company, Freightliner Trucks, Goodyear, Liberty Tire Recycling, Mobil 1, Sprint, Sherwin-Williams, Sunoco, Toyota and UPS.
