Kaulig Racing to Honor Vietnam Veterans at Martinsville

Kaulig Racing’s No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet to Run Special Scheme honoring Vietnam Veterans for Agent Orange Awareness Month

(LEXINGTON, N.C.) October 23, 2020 – The scheme for Justin Haley’s No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet will change for the first time in the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) season at Martinsville Speedway, as Kaulig Racing honors Vietnam veterans during Agent Orange Awareness month.

Agent Orange, an herbicide used by the United States military to control vegetation and foliage during the Vietnam War, has been linked to several diseases, including Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease and several forms of cancer as a result of exposure. While it is estimated that 2.6 million veterans were exposed to Agent Orange, many veterans, and their children, are still navigating the effects today.

“This paint scheme is a particularly special one for me,” said President of Kaulig Racing, Chris Rice. “My father-in-law recently passed away from renal cancer as a direct result of being exposed to Agent Orange when he fought in the Vietnam War. We, at Kaulig Racing, thought it was a great opportunity, since October is Agent Orange Awareness Month, to raise awareness and give back to the Vietnam Veterans and their families who were, and still are, directly affected by Agent Orange.”

Justin Haley will pilot the special orange and black No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday, October 31, paying tribute to Vietnam veterans during Agent Orange Awareness month. Kaulig Racing will also be making a donation to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, a program that honors those who returned home from Vietnam and later died.
