According to the Bangor Saving Bank press release:
"Northern New England native Austin Theriault will drive the No. 52 Rick Ware Racing car covered with the Travis Mills Foundation name and logo in the Ford EcoBoost 400 on Nov. 17, the final Cup Race of the season. The speedway has a spectator capacity of 46,000, and the race annually has one of the largest television audiences of the Cup Series season with more than 4 million viewers last year.
Bangor Savings has supported the Travis Mills Foundation through its events, like the Miles for Mills Memorial Day 5K, and through donations to the amazing vacation retreat it has built for military families. The foundation has supported more than 300 families from 38 states since its founding.”
Travis Mills is a retired United States Army Staff Sergeant and one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. He is a motivational speaker, actor, author and an advocate for veterans and amputees who continues to overcome life’s challenges, breaking physical barriers and defying odds.
Mills and his wife Kelsey founded the Travis Mills Foundation to benefit veterans injured in active duty or as a result of their service to the nation and have a beautiful retreat in Rome, Maine.
Bangor Savings Bank has sponsored Theriault in five Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season, including his series debut in July at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The bank plans to sponsor Theriault for Cup Series races at Kansas Speedway, Martinsville Speedway, and Texas Motor Speedway leading up to the season finale in Florida.
