Freedom Car a popular Victory with huge crowd at Columbus Motor Speedway

POW-MIA/MyComputerCareer Freedom Car in Victory Lane with driver Jake
Spillers and Team Johnson Motorsports.


After being rained out a week ago, the #76 POW-MIA Freedom Car driven by
Jake Spillers, made the trip back to Columbus Motor Speedway for a big night
of NASCAR racing. Columbus Motor Speedway having only one more late model
race left, ever, was hosting the City of Obetz, Ohioâ??s Annual Zucchini
Festival. The festivites included FREE admission to the races and a FREE
concert with Country Music Star, â??Clint Blackâ?. An estimated 20,000
people showed up for the overall festivities!

â??Itâ??s sad to see such a historic track close its doors. Iâ??m happy to
say that I was able to pick up a win here before that happened. It really is
crazy that a track with such a great car count each week will be closing. It
was a humbling experience to talk to the veterans at the track, who have
raced there for decades, to listen to some of their stories. With the stands
packed thousands deep, I believe it put a smile on everyone's face to see
the speedway going out on a high note. The Nuckles Family has owned and
operated this race track for more than 70 years! A special thank you to the
Nuckles family for their hospitality.� said Spillers.


Jake Spillers and the POW-MIA/ MyComputerCareer Freedom Car were right there
with the fastest cars a week ago when rain came in and postponed the race.
The Freedom Car, based out of North Carolina, travels to create awareness of
the POW-MIA issue and is supported by MyComputerCareer, which has an IT
campus right in Columbus. Our local Columbus following definitely wanted to
see the Freedom Car back for the race! After a solid qualifying time,
Spillers was in the redraw and placed on the pole! Jake held off the#80 of
Daryl McKay and the #0 of Ohio State NASCAR Champion, Donnie Hill, side by
side for the first two laps and then pulled away on the first green flag
run. Single file restarts made for little pressure on Jake as he drove away
from the field for the first 25 laps of the 35 lap feature. The last 10 laps
had CMS point leader, Kyle Purvis, chasing Jake down and nudging him a few
times to try and take the top spot. Jake brought the #76 across the finish
line first with Purvis to his inside and an exciting finish for the fans!
â??Even though Kyle was the point leader and a popular driver here at
Columbus Motor Speedway, the #76 had a lot of fans and Veterans cheering the
POW-MIA Freedom Car to a Victory! It was great to see patriotic people get
behind us! Wow, with this crowd that was a fun and popular Victory�, said
Jerick Johnson with Team Johnson Motorsports. Jerick and his father, Jack
who is an Army Veteran, have used racing as a way to help Veterans and
support the POW-MIA cause that is so meaningful to so many people! Team
Johnson Motorsports would like to thank MyComputerCareer for their continued
support of our Veterans and the POW-MIA cause!



The team will compete next in the last of seven races in the Scott Farms
Sweet Potato Series at Southern National Motorsports Park on September 10th
in Kenly, NC. Following that, the POW-MIA/ MyComputerCareer Freedom Car will
head up to Indianapolis for the JEGS CRA race at Indianapolis Raceway Park
on September 24th. Check out FreedomCar.org for more details.

About POW-MIA Freedom Car: The POW-MIA Freedom Car and Awareness
Campaignsâ?? mission of promoting and increasing public awareness of the
POW-MIA issue, educating future generations of the POW-MIA cause and
reminding our fellow Americans that the greatest tragedy of all is to be
forgotten, has been an ongoing effort. Through racing mediums, veteran
supporters, sponsors and large public events, we aspire to become the single
largest program in the country for keeping the POW-MIA issue in the
forefront of our fellow Americans. We are helping to connect the past,
present, and future Veterans, and keep them from being left behind, should
they become POW-MIA. Simple everyday efforts helping our youth recognize
that the POW-MIA Logo is NOT â??some sort of rock band or somethingâ?
(actual words from teenagers) is WHY we continue our educational efforts!
