NEW CAR, NEW RACE.
Next race is in New Hampshire on July 13, 2013.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dover, DE (May 24, 2013) – NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Jeffrey Earnhardt will be racing at Dover International Speedway this Saturday, June 1st in the 5-Hour Energy 200 racing the #79 Oath Keepers Ford Mustang for Go Green Racing. Jeffrey is grandson of the legendary Dale Earnhardt and nephew of the sports most popular driver 10 years running, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jeffrey is also the only 4th generation professional athlete in American sports.
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current & former military members, peace officers and firefighters who will fulfill the oath they swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Their motto is “Not on our watch”!
Oath Keepers partnered with Earnhardt for the Dover race with plans to run additional races this season. The effort is 100% funded by donations of like minded Americans who want to deliver the Oath Keepers message. “Oath Keepers are those who stepped forward, raised their hand and are willing to die to protect and defend our Constitution. That means the world to me and I’m honored to be a part of this” said Jeffrey. If you want to see the Oath Keepers car on the track again then get involved, go to www.OathKeepers.org and donate. Saturday’s race will be televised on ESPN.
REDLINING IT. We buried that needle, and how!
The initial fundraising effort to put an Oath Keepers car on the NASCAR track raised a total of $47,000.00, far exceeding the goal of $30,000.00 needed by end of day, May 1, 2013 to run an Oath Keepers car, driven by Jeffrey Earnhardt, at the upcoming June 1 race in Dover, Delaware.
Now that’s success! The way donations were rolling in yesterday, we had a feeling we were going to go over the target of $30,000.00, but when we saw the total this morning, we were floored. We are now not only all set for the June 1, Dover race, but are now also half way to our next goal, which will be sponsoring Jeffrey Earnhardt in a July 14, 2013 race in New Hampshire (Live Free Or Die!).
We want to thank all of our members, supporters, and all of the other patriotic and liberty loving Americans who stepped up to make this such a successful campaign. We particularly want to thank David Codrea of Gun Rights Examiner, Dan Johnson of PANDA, the folks who post over at Freerepublic.com, dailypaul.com, and the ronpaulforums.com, among many others, who helped to rally the troops to support this effort.
And we also want to thank Oath Keepers Jeff Ford, Randall Skipper, and Nick Roehrick for their hard work on this project.
A point of clarification: This is an ongoing campaign, funded entirely by folks who donate specifically for this effort. No funds from membership, our billboard fund, or our “normal” donations to our general fund will be used for this “speeding billboard” racing sponsorship effort, just as our billboard campaign is also self-sustaining and separate, with folks donating specifically for that project. Funds for each project are kept separate and are used only for that particular project.
This means we will sponsor Jeffrey Earnhardt for as long as you, our members and supporters, want us to. We think it is an excellent and very worthy campaign to get our name and message of keeping the oath, and defending the Constitution, in front of millions of patriotic Americans, many of them current serving and veterans.
As our enemies over at the SPLC noted, what we are doing is putting a “speeding billboard” on the NASCAR track, driven round and round by “Jeffrey Earnhardt, a young prince of one of NASCAR’s royal families.” They got that right! Obviously, the far left government supremacists over at the SPLC are not happy about it, which is why they are attacking the project by featuring an article about it on their “Hatewatch” blog. That let’s you know we are on the right track!
Like our billboard campaign to put Oath Keepers billboards outside of every major military base in America, this is our way of going directly to our target audience of veterans and current serving, going right around the self-appointed gate-keepers in the leftist dominated press and bureaucracy.
For the race in Dover, we are trying to work the Delaware State motto of “Liberty and Independence” into the artwork for the car. And for New Hampshire, we will use that state’s motto of “Live Free or Die” which seems perfectly fitting for the current struggle we are engaged in to preserve liberty.
Stay tuned for more updates as we race on!

Darren Ellsmore, Owner of Fastwax.com, Donates Associate Sponsorship Position to Oath Keepers.
Pictured here is our brother in arms Darren Ellsmore who donated an associate sponsorship position on his FW1/FASTWAX.COM Mustang for the NASCAR Nationwide Race on Saturday May 4th at Talladega Super Speedway.
What a pleasant surprise! Just when you thought you had to wait till June 1 to see the Oath Keepers tab logo racing around the track, Darren Ellsmore, the owner of Fastwax.com, steps up and donates an associate sponsorship position on his FW1/FASTWAX.COM Mustang for the NASCAR Nationwide Race this coming Saturday May 4th at Talladega Super Speedway.
Fastwax.com is is one of the major sponsors of the Jeffrey Earnhardt Race Team and Darren Ellsmore is a true patriot who supports the Constitution and is especially concerned with the ongoing assault on the Second Amendment (hence his “I plead the 2nd” T-Shirt).
Darren also supports our mission to outreach to current serving military, police, first responders, and veterans, and has stepped up to the plate in a big way to make sure our logo and message about defending the Constitution is seen this weekend.
We salute Darren and the rest of the crew at Fastwax.com and thank them for their generosity and their patriotism. Darren lives in Colorado, where the Colorado legislature just passed one of the most egregious anti-gun rights bills in the current assault on the right to bear arms. Like other Colorado citizens, he is now in the front wave of the resistance against the gun grabbers. By stepping up like this, Fastwax.com joins other patriotic companies, such as Magpul, who have put their money, time, and principled stand into the fight, and are leading by example. That’s how it’s done.

Founder of Oath Keepers
What: Public Awareness Campaign to bring the Oath Keepers’ message to the NASCAR audience and general public by running a NASCAR race car driven by Jeffrey Earnhardt. Oath Keepers is asking like-minded Americans to donate to get the Oath Keepers race car on the track and get our message about defending the Constitution out to millions.
Where & When: Dover International Speedway Dover, DE. Saturday, June 01 02:30 PM ET - TV: ESPN – Radio: MRN. The television audience is 1.5 million people average for this race (Should exceed this number with the move from ESPN2 to ESPN), Race attendance for the NNS race will be 40,000 people. Jeffrey will also do media promoting the Oath Keepers message leading into the race weekend, reaching millions more. In addition, the social media push using the Earnhardt brand will get attention and help spread the Oath Keepers message to millions prior to the race.
WHY: To get the message out to the public that our Constitution is at risk and those of us who took the Oath to protect and defend it cannot sit quietly by while it’s dismantled. There are millions of veterans and active duty NASCAR fans who need to hear our message about their oath responsibilities. Jeffrey Earnhardt is an American patriot who gets it and wants to do what he can to help carry the message.
”Oath Keepers are those who stepped forward, raised their hand and are willing to die to protect and defend our Constitution; that means everything to me and I’m honored to be a part this.” – Jeffrey Earnhardt
RECAP: Jeffery Earnhardt will take a stand for liberty on June 1st by driving the Oath Keepers car at Dover Delaware . We need you to help us put the car on the track.
This car represents the values we share as Americans who stand ready to defend the constitution at all costs. Oath Keepers is comprised of active duty military, police, veterans, first responders, and any freedom loving American who shares the enlightened vision of the founding fathers. Your donation will speak loudly to all the foes of our Republic, both foreign and domestic, so please be as generous as you can to help preserve the liberty we cherish.
NOTE FROM STEWART RHODES, FOUNDER OF OATH KEEPERS:
This is a rare opportunity to bring the Oath Keepers message to millions of NASCAR fans. Many of them are veterans, and there are also a large number of active duty military who watch NASCAR. Jeffrey Earnhardt comes from a legendary family of racers, and we are most honored that he has stepped up to help us defend the Constitution. He brings great credit to his family and to his sport by doing this, and he deserves our full support. All donations go directly to getting this car on the track. It will take $30,000.00 to get it done, but I am confident that with your help, we can do it. This is the first of what we hope will be many races run with an Oath Keepers car. The potential exposure is in the tens of millions. This could help make Oath Keepers a household name, and help to spread our message about the oath to millions of Americans who may not yet be fully awake to the ongoing assault on our Bill of Rights, and the rapidly increasing destruction of our Republic. You know how late the hour is. Help us awaken the “Sleeping Giant.” And besides, just imagine Mark Potok’s face when he sees this car on the track. Priceless! - For the Republic, Stewart Rhodes (U.S. Army Airborne disabled Veteran, Yale Law graduate, and Founder of Oath Keepers).
