Put on the B.R.A.K.E.S.
During Small Business Week in May, Fifth Third offered companies with fewer than 100 employees in the Bank’s 10-state footprint a chance to have their logo featured on a NASCAR race car. Through its What Drives You contest, customers and owners had the opportunity to nominate small businesses online in recognition of the way they serve their communities and push for excellence.
B.R.A.K.E.S., which stands for Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe, is a GuideStar platinum-rated 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to preventing injuries and saving lives by training teens and their parents to be safer and more responsible behind the wheel. Top Fuel drag racing champion Doug Herbert founded the organization in 2008 after the tragic loss of his two teen sons to a car crash. Since then, the charity has trained more than 30,000 teens and their parents at dozens of schools across the country.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on Daytona:
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Jimmy Fennig has done a great job building our superspeedway cars. Last year, we were able to get our Fifth Third Ford into victory lane. Anything can happen in typical plate racing but hopefully we can once again get our Ford into victory lane and clinch a spot in the Playoffs.”
