David Gilliland drove his #38 Ford Fusion at Atlanta this Labor Day during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Advocare 500 with special attention to a local business and the US Military, both having ties to local towns just outside of Raleigh, NC.
House-Autry Mills, based in Four Oaks, NC, made its first appearance in NASCAR as a primary sponsor, as well as celebrating its 200th anniversary. Gilliland’s #38 also had as an associate sponsor on the decklid, Military Missions in Action (MMIA), based in nearby Fuquay-Varina.
Founded in 1812, House-Autry Mills manufactures breaders for chicken, pork, seafood, vegetables, hushpuppies, cornbread and biscuit mixes, and a line of sauces to compliment America’s favorite baked and fried goods.
MMIA was founded in 2008 by Mike Dorman, retired US Coast Guard, with a commitment to assisting disabled veterans along with supporting active servicemen and women. For more info on the efforts put forth by MMIA visit: www.MilitaryMissionsInAction.org.
