Salvation Army Car Will Put Petal to the Metal in Saturday’s Fontana, CA Race

Morgan Shepherd and his pit crew inspect his #89 Salvation Army race car at Bristol.

Morgan Shepherd and his #89 Salvation Army car will be burning rubber this weekend at the Nationwide Series event in Fontana, CA on Saturday, March 26. Tune in to ESPN to catch the start of the race at 5:45 pm ET and help us cheer on Shepherd.

Saturday will be a once in a life time opportunity for two lucky kids from our local Salvation Army program, as Shepherd has generously donated pit passes for them to get the full NASCAR experience. Just like Daytona, it’s going to be awesome!

We’ll post pictures and updates from Fontana when we receive them next week.

Morgan Shepherd's teammate Brett Rowe drove his #55 Salvation Army car at Bristol too!

When Shepherd was racing in Bristol last weekend, Salvationists Major Peggy Mullins and Brenda Kent met up with him and his team for dinner. Shepherd said, “It was certainly a pleasure having The Salvation Army folks here at Bristol for a prayer, a meal, and good Christian conversation.”
