Jared Lorenzen tribute car to race at Kentucky Speedway

This weekend, the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to the Kentucky Speedway, and tomorrow night, a driver will race in honor of Jared Lorenzen. 

JD Motorsports with Gary Keller (JDM) will bring awareness to the Jared Lorenzen Memorial Fund with a large decal on the hood of BJ McLeod’s No. 4 Chevrolet in Friday night’s Alsco 300. This morning, KSR launched the fund to raise money for Jared’s children’s education. So far, we’ve received over $30,000 in online donations, a testament to the impact Jared had on people’s lives, far and wide.

You can watch the Alsco 300 live on NBC Sports Network tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. Shoutout to local graphics company GCI Digital for the decals, which are beautiful:

This is probably the only time Jared’s okay wearing red.

    Cool tribute to Jared, but if they could wrap the car in blue and use #22 on it, that would be way cooler. 😉

    Tyler, had KSR considered printing up T-shirts like this, with proceeds going to the fund? (with permission from the family, of course)

    Nice to see, will be there. Actually got to see BJ race Super Late Models several times in Central Florida area when I lived down there.
