Edwards Aflac Honor Fan

55151Jpg
Carl Edwards and his sponsor Aflac welcomed a very special guest to Talladega Superspeedway over the weekend.

Blake Bobbitt was invited to the festivities and honored as an honorary member of Aflac's Crew of Courage. Bobbitt was one of seven fans injured in the 2009 spring race at Talladega from Edwards' last-lap, airborne crash. She is the crew's inaugural member.

In addition to the honor this past weekend, Edwards will ride the rest of this season with Blake's name on the back of his helmet.

Aflac's Crew of Courage members have overcome illnesses, accidents and injuries — all with incredible courage and strength. They are Aflac policyholders who know firsthand how the company helps individuals in times of need. They have benefitted from Aflac when they were sick or hurt and couldn't work, to help pay for expenses not covered by other major insurance policies.

"These inspirational people deserve to be recognized and honored, which is why we are launching Aflac's Crew of Courage," Edwards said.

In select race markets this season, Aflac Racing and Edwards will welcome an inspirational Aflac policyholder into the Crew and give him or her a VIP experience at his or her local track. Selected Crew of Courage members will share one-on-one time with Edwards and receive special access to the garage and pit areas, as well as tickets to the race. What’s more, each Crew member will be a virtual passenger with Edwards throughout the season through a feather-shaped sticker bearing his or her name on Edwards’ racing helmet. Each member of the Crew will also receive an autographed replica race helmet as a memento of the experience.
