NASCAR owner Richard Childress to help Ukraine by donating ammunition


NASCAR Hall of Fame owner Richard Childress is offering to donate one million rounds to the Ukrainian Armed Forces to help them in the ongoing war with Russia, he said in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday. .

“I was listening to (Ukrainian) President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy the other day say he didn’t want to go out, he wanted ammunition,” Childress said. “I called my good friend Fred Wagenhals, who is the president of AMMO, Inc., and I said, ‘Fred, we have to help these people. They need ammunition.’ He got up right away.”

Childress, who serves on the board of AMMO, Inc., has been in NASCAR for more than five decades, first as a driver before becoming an owner in the early 1980s.

Dale Earnhardt Sr. drove Childress’ No. 3 Chevy for most of his career before his fatal crash in the 2001 Daytona 500.
