"We are honored that Quick Lane has decided to use our car to deliver its message about 'Trading One Uniform for Another,'" said Wood Brothers Racing co-owner Eddie Wood. "Our uncle, (Hall of Fame crew chief) Leonard Wood, is a veteran and we've always held those who served in high esteem. This scholarship program is an excellent opportunity for them."
Everyone is invited to nominate veterans for these scholarships by going to www.QLtradingone.com and writing a short essay on why their nominee is a deserving recipient. Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers will select 10 finalists from all qualified nominees.
"I'm excited to drive the No. 21 Ford Fusion with the Quick Lane colors," said driver Ryan Blaney. "The fact that we're also promoting the 'Trading One Uniform for Another' scholarship program makes it even more special."
In November, which is Military Appreciation Month, Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers will reveal the finalists at www.QLtradingone.com and invite everyone to vote for a finalist to receive a scholarship. Quick Lane will announce the five scholarship recipients at this year's Quick Lane Bowl at Ford Field in Detroit on Dec. 26.

Wood Brothers Racing was formed in 1950 in Stuart, Va., by Hall of Famer Glenn Wood. Wood Brothers Racing is the oldest active team and one of the winningest teams in NASCAR history. Since its founding, the team won 98 races (including at least one race in every decade for the last seven decades) and 117 poles in NASCAR's top-tier series. Fielding only Ford products for its entire history, the Wood Brothers own the longest association of any motorsports team with a single manufacturer. Glenn's brother, Leonard, is known for inventing the modern pit stop. The team currently runs the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion driven by Ryan Blaney in the famous number 21 racecar.
