MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 19, 2019) – Last week, Credit One Bank and Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) unveiled a special patriotic paint scheme for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which he will race in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, July 6.
Credit One Bank and Kyle Larson unveiled the paint scheme to an audience of veterans in downtown Mooresville outside of the Welcome Home Veterans Living Military Museum at Richard’s Coffee Shop. The paint scheme was designed in honor of Independence Day and in memory of the coffee shop’s founder and original owner, Richard Warren. Warren was a U.S. Army combat pilot in Vietnam, who spent the last 14 years of his life honoring and supporting America’s veterans.
Included in the paint scheme on the No. 42 Camaro are Richard’s name and 10th anniversary logo of Richard’s Coffee Shop on the decklid. Stars adorned the vehicle, paying homage to the American flag.
The coffee shop was dubbed “The Most Patriotic Coffee Shop in America” by Our State, the official North Carolina state magazine and is the only non-profit coffee shop and living military museum in the U.S.
“I’m truly honored to be a part of a team that is committed to commemorating our nation’s military veterans like Richard, who dedicated the last years of his life preserving the stories and livelihood of all veterans,” said Larson. “We hope to honor his legacy with this special paint scheme and proudly race with Richard’s name and logo.”
“Richard made a home for veterans at the coffee shop,” said John Coombe, senior vice president of communications, Credit One Bank. “He created a community and support system for veterans to share stories, camaraderie, and a good cup of coffee. We’re happy that we were able to find a fitting way to celebrate his accomplishments and the coffee shop’s anniversary today.”
Following the reveal, Larson met with the community members and posed for photos next to his newly decorated Camaro.
