Concord, N.C. (May 30, 2012) – In an effort to create additional awareness for autism, the No. 6 Cargill Beef Ford will be one of 17 Nationwide Series cars sporting the Autism Speaks ‘Puzzle Piece’ logo during this Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series 200-mile race this weekend at Dover International Speedway.
“Autism affects a lot of individuals and their families,” said series points’ leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr, driver of the No. 6 Cargill Beef Ford. “The program that Dover International Speedway has developed to help Autism Speaks raise awareness is first-class.
“Cargill, Roush Fenway and I want to show our support for the cause by carrying the puzzle piece decal this weekend on our Ford. It is great to see the support throughout the NASCAR community for Autism Speaks.”
