Keselowski was also accompanied by fellow Ford Performance drivers, including Team Penske teammates Ryan Blaney and Joey Logano and Stewart-Haas Racing’s Aric Almirola.
Since 1990, the Fisher House Foundation has provided comfort homes for families of veterans receiving treatments, at no cost to the families. There are 76 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and at 32 VA medical centers across the nation, but there hasn’t been one established in the state of Michigan.
That was something Keselowski, a Rochester Hills, Michigan, native, wanted to change through his foundation.
“It was an incredible event,” said Keselowski. “To be able to hang out with some veterans, but also have a lot of fun, raise some funding and do a site visit for the brand new Fisher House being built in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We want to see one come to the state. There isn’t one in the state, which seems absolutely crazy. It just seems so natural. Hopefully we can get them the funding they need to get going.”
