NEW BERN, Craven County — NASCAR drivers are busy with the Chase, the sport's postseason. But they're never too busy to show their appreciation.
NASCAR star Brad Keselowski stopped by with his Checkered Flag Foundation to visit first responders at the New Bern Fire Department on Thursday. He brought supplies, a hot meal and smiles that were as much appreciated by those who received them as they were to see the driver.
Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation (BKCFF) announced we are providing support to first responders in communities affected by Hurricane Florence. RK Allen Oil Company, based in Talladega, Ala., and the provider of fuel to the jet dryers at Talladega Superspeedway, graciously donated 8,000 gallons of fuel to be used by first responders in the affected areas. Darlington Raceway, H&L Logging, ALSCO and Bojangles' have also jumped on board making contributions to the campaign. Courtesy of their generous donations, and the overwhelming support of fans, BKCFF is able to cover the costs associated with the transportation of fuel to the Jacksonville, N.C., EMS compound. The fuel delivery was made on Monday, Sept. 24.
