During last Saturday’s event at Hickory Motor Speedway, Jerick Johnson was one of 26 drivers who participated in the Carolina Pro Late Model Series’ 100-lap race. Johnson’s No. 76 car finished 19th, but there’s more to he and his race team than how they finish in any given competition.
Johnson’s car is called the POW-MIA Freedom Car, which has the mission of promoting awareness of the over 82,000 Prisoners of War and Missing in Action soldiers still unaccounted for and educating future generations of the POW-MIA cause. They seek to make sure all POW-MIAs are accounted for, and wish to remind their fellow Americans that the greatest tragedy of all is to be forgotten.
