Patriotic scheme for Elliott at Daytona

NAPA AUTO PARTS returns to the hood of Chase Elliott's #24 Chevrolet, this time with a new look. The #24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Patriotic Chevrolet SS dons a red, white and blue scheme that also features stars and stripes. The scheme will help to kick off NAPA's "Get Back and Give Back" effort while boosting awareness for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF).

NAPA AUTO PARTS has a long history of supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families. In March, the company announced that it had raised more than $2.5 million in 2016 for the IFHF through its annual "Get Back and Give Back" campaign. The campaign kicked off in 2012 and gives NAPA AUTO PARTS patrons the opportunity to contribute to the IFHF by purchasing T-shirts at NAPAonline.com.

In addition, customers may purchase an IFHF bucket for $3.99 and get 20 percent off three more items that fit inside, with NAPA donating $1 to the IFHF for every bucket sold. The company also donates $1 for each redeemed mail-in rebate for batteries, alternators and starters purchased in July.

Customers also have the ability to donate all or a portion of their mail-in rebates directly to the IFHF. One hundred percent of the donation goes to the IFHF's mission of building nine Intrepid Spirit centers around the country that will provide the most advanced care possible to military personnel suffering from traumatic brain injury and psychological health conditions.

Elliott is set to make his fourth NASCAR Cup Series start at Daytona this weekend. In his first three appearances at the 2.5-mile speedway, Elliott has led 42 laps and averages a starting position of 8.7 and finishing position of 27.7. Elliott has also earned back-to-back Daytona 500 pole awards, becoming the youngest driver (20 years, 2 months and 17 days) to land the top spot in NASCAR's biggest race in 2016 with a speed of 196.314 mph.

In celebration of Independence Day, Elliott will be wearing a pair of "Support Our Troops" camouflage racing shoes that complement the special stars and stripes scheme featured on the #24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Patriotic Chevrolet SS. Following the race, the Chase Elliott Foundation is putting the racing shoes up for auction through the NASCAR Foundation's online auctions site. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the IFHF.
