INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –
Wednesday afternoon at the Speedway Colts punter Pat McAfee, Indycar driver Conor Daly and Dale Coyne, owner of Dale Coyne Racing made a “historic”, as Pat McAfee put it, announcement.
McAfee and his new business Shirts For America, will be the primary sponsor for Conor Daly in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
“This all came to be about 10 days ago. Conor Daly is a friend of mine, an Indiana kid, a local kid,” McAfee said while on set with Indy Sports Central at the Speedway.
“We were talking and he told me he didn’t have a sponsor and I saw it as an opportunity. He’s a terrific driver, we saw that last week at the Grand Prix when he led for 14 laps. We are using it as an opportunity to start a business to benefit military foundations.”
For each t-shirt sold, a portion of the proceeds will go to Wish For Our Heroes, which was founded by American veterans to help struggling veterans with every day situations they face off the battlefield and to The Pat McAfee Foundation.
McAfee and Daly described the race car as “a majestic American vehicle” and according to the picture, the car lives up to its patriotic expectation.

“When we’re dancing in victory lane drinking some milk,” McAfee added. “It’s gonna be a blast.”
