What denotes a hero? Justin Moore knows. Justin Moore has once again signed up to support Crown Royal's 'Your Hero's Name Here' contest. Moore admits to being extremely careful when selecting contests and scholarships to team up with, and obviously feels like this contest is one worth the selection.
The contest is designed to help showcase an individual that fits the "hometown hero" description. Not only does the winner receive recognition, but they will have a NASCAR race named after them.
The winner last year, Curtiss Shaver, was the victim of a farming accident that cost him part of his leg. Shaver definitely did not let the injury get the best of him. Instead, Shaver decided that he wanted to be a firefighter like the men who worked so diligently to save him.
The nomination process is incredibly easy. Adults can nominate an individual, 21 or older, that they deem their "hometown hero" and then fans will vote to determine the winner. A special ceremony, tentatively set at July 28th, 2013, will be the big reveal. All you need to do is visit yourherosnamehere.nascar.com and submit your nomination by April 14th.
Now the only question is, who is your hero?
