Kansas Speedway officials announced today that 5-hour ENERGY®  will sponsor the track’s inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race on May 10, naming the race the 5-hour ENERGY® 400 Benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). 

From May 1 through July 31, 2014, Living Essentials will donate five cents from the sale of every specially marked red, white and blue bottle of cherry flavored 5-hour ENERGY® to SOWF, a top-rated nonprofit organization that supports the military's special operations forces and their families through college scholarships, family services, and financial stipends. The minimum guaranteed donation is $75,000.

“I’m excited to have 5-hour ENERGY® join with us on our inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “I’m even prouder to know that we will be honoring the military service of so many men and women and are able to recognize the commitment they have made to our country. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides support and assistance to personnel in the U.S. Special Operations Command and I look forward to working with them and 5-hour ENERGY® during our race weekend.”
