Stremme to honor Natalie Krohn in Talladega race
October 5, 2012
MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Stremme will take to the track at the Talladega Superspeedway this weekend in the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500. In addition to having sponsorship from Swan Energy, Stremme and the No. 30 team will be honoring Natalie Krohn, whom recently lost her life.
The No. 30 Inception Motorsports Toyota will feature a tribute to Natalie on the hood of the car, and Stremme plans to run the entire race in honor of the daughter of 2007 USMTS national champion Jason Krohn.
Stremme has raced at the 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway numerous times, earning his best start of 17th in 2006 and his top finish of 8th in 2007.
“I am excited to get to run the full race at Talladega,” said Stremme. “I am honored to be able to use our car to remember Natalie, a very sweet girl that recently lost her life. I hope that we have a good day for her.”
“I am pleased we are able to do something to honor Natalie at Talladega,” said Swan Energy CEO Brandon Davis. “I am grateful to have the honor and ability to give Natalie and her family one more day to show the world her smile.”
The Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 will air live on ESPN at 12 noon CST on Sunday, Oct. 7.
