NASCAR driver’s Michael McDowell and Blake Koch will be on hand to throw out the first pitch and sign autographs.

Also on hand will be NASCAR show cars in front of the ballpark, including the #52 replica that Morgan Shepherd drove in New Hampshire earlier this year to break the all-time age for a NASCAR start.

Finish a Winner (FAW) was founded in 2002 by NASCAR team owner Randy McDonald. FAW began as a speaking platform for race car drivers to share their testimonies and is crossing athletic lines into other sports for the first time. Today FAW events reach thousands of NASCAR fans at multiple sites all over the United States. 

Local Chattanooga businessman, Dell Hamilton, director of FAW and founding member of Support Military Foundation, is excited about the event branching out into the Chattanooga area, his home town. “We appreciate The Lookouts for allowing us to bring our event to them and to the fans, and we challenge the community to sell out AT&T Field.” 

Auto Racing Outreach is one of the main partners. Founder Greg Berkey provides show cars, ministry guidance and leadership at all of the FAW events throughout the year. The Chattanooga Lookouts are a minor league baseball team that is affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
