POW-MIA Freedom Car to make appearance at Carteret County Speedway


One of the most recognizable cars in Pro Late Model racing will be on hand for Saturday’s Richlands Tire Service Crystal Coast Classic at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.

The POW-MIA Freedom Car, piloted by 41-year-old Jerick Johnson, was created to increase awareness about Prisoners of War and American soldiers Missing in Action. 

Leading into the Carolina Pro Late Model Series race on Saturday, Johnson’s Freedom Car will also be on display at the Moore’s Old Tyme Barbeque Chicken & Seafood location in Morehead City on Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The Freedom Car was created by Team Johnson Motorsports as a way to raise awareness of the POW-MIA issue and educate future generations that no soldier be left behind or forgotten,” said Johnson, the son and grandson of military veterans. “With Helping Heroes, a non-profit, on board this year, we have been able to use our You Are Not Forgotten campaign to expand to nowadays veterans and the problems they may have.”
