Bass Pro Shops racers recognize conservation work of Ducks Unlimited

Springfield, MO – June 27, 2013–The Ducks Unlimited logo will appear on Bass Pro Shops‘ No. 14 car and truck during two of the biggest races of the year to bring awareness of the organization’s ongoing conservation efforts to NASCAR fans. Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris made the announcement recently at the 2013 Ducks Unlimited Convention.
Ducks Unlimited’s commitment to conservation for the past 76 years will be honored with special logos placed prominently on the Bass Pro Shops-sponsored racecar and truck.
The Coca Cola 400 at Daytona International Speedway on July 6 will be the first race where the Ducks Unlimited logo will appear on the Bass Pro Shops No. 14 Sprint Cup Series car driven by Tony Stewart. The special logo will appear again on Oct. 19 at the Talladega Superspeedway on the Bass Pro Shops No. 14 Camping World Truck Series truck driven by Ty Dillon.
“Conservation is the only way we can ensure our grandchildren and their children will have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors like our generation has, and Ducks Unlimited has been promoting conservation for the past 76 years,” Morris said. “It’s a tremendous organization with a great mission, and I’m proud to call myself a DU member.”
Habitat conservation is the Ducks Unlimited mission. DU is the world’s largest and most effective private, non-profit waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization. DU is able to multilaterally deliver its work through a series of partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities and other entities.
