Brandon Jones’ No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro will feature a new military-themed paint scheme this weekend when the NASCAR XFINITY Series visits Richmond International Raceway.
Jones has partnered with the national nonprofit Hope For The Warriors to honor Military Children’s Month (April) by running a special paint scheme designed by five-year-old Liam Harshman, a military child who has grown up around Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
Two of Jones’ biggest passions away from the racetrack are supporting the military and helping children, so the No. 33 team came together with Hope For The Warriors to create a paint scheme design contest open to children of service members in the Hope For The Warriors program. Jones has a strong relationship with Hope For The Warriors, as he frequently takes the time to meet with visiting service members across the country at the track.
He partnered with the organization on a paint scheme design in order to bring attention to an area of the military that people may not always be thinking about, the children of those serving.
Children of service members who have participated in Hope For The Warriors programs were invited to create a design for the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro to run at Richmond International Raceway using only the colors red, white and blue.
Liam Harshman, whose winning design can be seen this weekend, has a father who served in the Marine Corps through September 2014, when he retired as a Staff Sergeant. The family continues to be involved in the military lifestyle, as they are currently based just outside of Camp Lejeune and regularly take part in events and services offered by Hope For The Warriors.
Jones revealed his paint scheme live on RCR’s Facebook channel Friday morning:
