(MOORESVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA) November 8, 2012 – MacDonald Motorsports is proud to announce that Honor and Remember will be prominently displayed on the hood of the #81 for Jason Bowles this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. Honor and Remember is a national non-profit organization that aims to establish a tangible national symbol of gratitude as a visible public reminder to all Americans to recognize the sacrifice of our military fallen heroes and their families.
“MacDonald Motorsports has consistently given tribute this year to our nations gold star families,” explained Honor and Remember founder, George Lutz. “It is very appropriate that this Veteran’s Day they continue to remember our fallen military heroes.”
Lutz has traveled more than 25,000 miles to all 50 states in order to urge the display of the flag by governments, businesses and individuals. He has delivered personalized versions of the flag to hundreds of families who have lost a loved one in military service, regardless of generation.
To date, more than 20 states have either adopted the flag or endorsed its use. Supporters of the flag can visit www.HonorandRemember.org to sign a petition urging lawmakers in Washington to support H.R. 546, which would make the flag a federally recognized, perpetual tribute to the lives lost in service to our country
That flag will be displayed prominently on the hood of the #81 this weekend for the Great Clips 200 at Phoenix.
Watch the race…..Fans can catch the Great Clips 200 from Phoenix International Raceway this Saturday at 3:30PM ET. The race can be seen live on ESPN.

About Honor and Remember, Inc
After the death of his eldest son Tony in Iraq, Gold Star father George Lutz recognized the need to educate the nation on the precious cost of freedom. His mission became raising awareness about the sacrifice made by military men and women who died for their country, through the creation and establishment of a distinct and tangible symbol. The Honor and Remember Flag was unveiled nationally on Memorial Day 2008 to perpetually recognize the sacrifice of our fallen military heroes and their families. The flag is now being endorsed by veteran and service organizations and adopted by cities and states. And it is being flown by patriotic Americans across our nation and is fast becoming a nationally accepted symbol of remembrance.
