NASCAR fans can get one step closer to the sport they love as Aflac brings the No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion show car to Landmark Ford on August 13, 2011. The show car will be available from Noon to 4pm for fans to get an up close look at a real stock car, ask questions to Roush Fenway Racing staff on-site and take memorable photos.
The No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion show car is jet black, with bright green and blue accents, and is a retired version of the vehicle Carl Edwards drives throughout the NASCAR Spring Cup Series season. This show car is also equipped with a replica motor like those used on the track by Roush Fenway Racing teams.
"The No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion show car gives fans the chance to get up close to a real stock car, just like the ones we drive on the track each week. And it's an exact copy of the great paint scheme we sport- complete with the Aflac duck on board," said Edwards. "This is another way for fans to get to know Aflac as the insurance company that helps people when they need it most. The company's policyholders know that Aflac pays you cash- and fast- just like our race cars drive, especially when they're sick or hurt and can't work."
Aflac, a primary sponsor of Carl Edwards and the No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion, is also the official voluntary insurance partner of Roush Fenway Racing. Edwards finished the 2010 Sprint Cup season 4th
in points standings. Fans can access exclusive video, race recaps, enter contests, download Aflac ringtones and purchase Aflac Racing gear on www.AflacRacing.com
