When drivers started their engines May 29 at the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500, race fans saw a new look on the No. 11 A.J. Foyt Racing Chevrolet.

A longtime supporter and friend of A.J. Foyt Racing, ABC Supply Co. Inc., Beloit, Wis., continued its sponsorship of the team in the Indy 500 by gifting a new IndyCar design while bringing attention to Home For Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. The car’s stars and stripes design celebrated American pride and prominently featured Home For Our Troops’ mission of “Building Homes. Rebuilding Lives.”

In addition, thanks to ABC Supply's $1 million match of donations made during the event, more than $2 million were donated to Homes For Our Troops. To read more about roofing professionals helping their communities, see “Goodwill to all”.
