Thrivent Financial is the primary sponsor for Leavine Family Racing’s ride for Michael McDowell this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway and will be an associate for four other races this year, the team announced Friday.
Thrivent is a non-for-profit financial services organization that helps Christians with their finances. Thrivent states it has approximately 2.4 million members.
“With my core fan base, I believe, being Christians and having a lot of followers in that, hopefully, I’l be introducing more people to Thrivent,’’ McDowell said. “I’m not looking for Christian sponsors because that’s my niche or that’s my knack. Christian sponsors are a part of our program because that’s who I am.’’
