Guaranteed Rate Dedicates Rear Lid design to Team Red, White & Blue To Raise Awareness About the Importance of Mental, Physical and Financial Health for US Veterans

  

CHICAGO (September  X, 2022) Guaranteed Rate, an innovation-driven mortgage lender on track to be the nation’s top Fintech, and Tyler Reddick, two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series (NSX) Champion, are honoring Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), a nonprofit organization forging a leading health and wellness community for US Veterans, with a custom-made deck lid for Reddick’s No. 8 car at the 2022 Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. 

 

“Grit, endurance, commitment, and skills honed over thousands of hours of practice and action – all the things Tyler Reddick brings to the track – our veterans brought to their careers in service,” said Mike Erwin, executive director of Team RWB. “At Team RWB, we say that life is a team sport. Just like Tyler has his crew supporting his success, our nation’s veterans have Team RWB behind them as they prioritize their well-being after serving in the military. That’s why we’re fired up that Guaranteed Rate is helping us share our message. – Homeownership can be a critical part of long-term financial wellness for America’s veterans.”

 

Many veterans struggle with financial health when transitioning back into civilian life. Acknowledging this problem and providing a long-term solution is why Team RWB and Guaranteed Rate formed this partnership. Working together, they’re paving the road for Veterans to achieve their dreams of home ownership and realize the generational wealth-building opportunities home ownership provides. Guaranteed Rate also supports Team RWB with donations, financial education resources, and access to trained VA loan officers.  

 

“After a career in military service, I joined Guaranteed Rate because they actively support our Veterans,” says Jason C. Scott, SVP/Director of Veteran Lending for Guaranteed Rate and a 20-year US Army Combat retired Veteran.  “We’ve partnered with Team RWB for a while now to help Veterans realize the importance of their financial well-being. Tyler’s car will be in the thick of the action throughout the race, so we hope that the highly-visible platform inspires his fans to learn more about Team RWB.” 

 

Guaranteed Rate has a long history of serving those who served, partnering with the military to provide free financial education to Veterans. To date, this program has helped Veterans buy more than $15B worth of homes. In 2022, Guaranteed Rate launched VetNet, a resource group created to support Veterans’ careers in mortgage lending. In addition, Scotsman Guide recognized Guaranteed Rate SVP of Mortgage Lending Jennifer Beeston as America’s Top Woman VA Loan Originator.

 

“Richard Childress Racing and I proudly support US Veterans,” says Tyler Reddick. “It was a natural fit for all of us to work as one team to celebrate contributions and needs of this community by raising awareness with NASCAR fans around the country.”
