February 20, 2014 NASCAR Drivers Race for Gun Safety and Project ChildSafe

At NSSF, we know who we’ll be rooting for at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Friday night at Daytona International Speedway. It will be the No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado owned by NTS Motorsports and driven by drivers John King and Brennan Newberry.

The reason we’re excited about this race is that the drivers will raise $24 for every lap they run in the Top 10 to help promote gun safety through Project ChildSafe, the national firearm safety education program sponsored by NSSF. Though you never take anything for granted in a NASCAR race, we do like our fundraising chances in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 because King took the checkered flag last year and Newberry is the pole sitter for this year’s race.

We’re grateful to, the world’s largest online auction site for firearms and related accessories, for generously picking Project ChildSafe as the charity to potentially benefit from a good showing by King and Newberry.

The race will air live on Friday, Feb. 21, on Fox Sports 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Project ChildSafe makes available firearm safety kits that include a gun lock to every law enforcement department in the country free of charge, and has distributed more than 36 million safety kits in the last 15 years. To help support Project ChildSafe, a 501(c) (3) organization, please visit the website at

Also, since sometimes there is confusion about the online sales of firearms, we point out that aside from merchandise bearing its logo, does not sell any of the items listed on its website. Third-party sellers list items on the site, and Federal and state laws govern the sale of firearms and other restricted items. Ownership policies and regulations are followed using federally licensed firearms dealers as transfer agents.
