Tony Stewart Spends Time “Honoring Our Heroes” In Richmond

Posted by Amy in General | NASCAR

I know I have talked a whole lot about the “Honoring Our Heroes” paint scheme that Tony Stewart ran in Richmond.  I talked about it the minute I found out about the paint scheme. I posted pictures of the paint scheme on the diecast. I posted about it right before the Richmond race. I posted about it after the Richmond race.  So why am I posting about it yet again, when the race is done and over and we have moved on?

To show you that Tony Stewart didn’t just get in the pretty car and drive it around the track that day.  Tony Stewart, himself, spent some time while at Richmond, honoring our heroes in the very spirit of his paint scheme. Stewart spend some time with Brendan Marrocco and Todd Nicely – the first two US servicemen to survive losing all four limbs in combat.

If you watched the pre-race show in Richmond, Tony mentioned the piece of steel from the World Trade Center that would be with him in the car. Here he is getting presented with it:

Frank Siller, Chairman of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and his brother George Siller, Vice Chairman, present a piece of World Trade Center steel to Tony Stewart. The steel was etched with W.T.C. 9/11 “343” (in honor of the 343 firefighters who died in NY on Sept. 11, 2001) “Never Forget”. (Photo Credit: Stephen Arce with Action Sports Inc).
