Barrett’s return will mark the 22nd anniversary of competition where he has competed in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, Indy Racing League and ARCA Series.
“Having Stanton in our car always brings excitement to our organization,” stated owner Rick Ware. “We have partnered together for over a decade and he is truly one of the best wheelmen that we have had the honor to compete with.” Rick continues, “Rick Ware and RWR are very excited to be working with Stanton Barrett. We have had multiple top 15 qualifying and finishing efforts in the past. He is great to work with and we are proud to support his charitable efforts promoting and donating space for www.FairGirls.org
Stanton will be paired with veteran crew chief George Church, and we look forward to a great weekend". Stanton Barrett will "wear his heart on his car" by literally placing the logo of FAIR Girls (www.fairgirls.org
), an international nonprofit helping in the recovery of girl survivors of sex trafficking and labor exploitation, on his NASCAR race car.
Stanton serves as an Executive Board Member for FairGirls and host committee member for FAIR Girls annual Pearls of Purpose gala in May 8, 2013
Starting in 2012, Stanton's own charity, 4Caring.org
, started and supports operations for FAIR Girls work to create an therapeutic art and economic empowerment program for 30-40 teen girls weekly living in inner city Washington D.C. This program is part of JewelGirls.org
that sells hand made jewelry by Jewel Girls members.
According to the FBI, Washington, D.C. is one of the top cities where girls as young as 10 are sold into sex trafficking. Through Stanton's support, FAIR Girls is educating and keeping many teen girls safe from this horrible form of modern day slavery while also helping them the confidence and skills they need to rebuild their future.
"FAIR Girls is honored that Stanton has chosen by donating with RWR to showcase our logo on his car during this NASCAR race. This large visual showcase of his support excites me and all of the girls we empower at FAIR Girls," says Andrea Powell, co-founding Executive Director of FAIR Girls.
Stanton hopes to mobilize, quite literally, more support for FAIR Girls to ensure that hundreds more girls can be found and assisted across the nation. "Human trafficking is one of the most important human rights issues. In September, President Obama made a clear statement that the United States will aggressively seek to serve victims and prosecute their traffickers. I want to see more done, and I am putting my personal and professional weight behind FAIR Girls because I know their programs truly help some of our nation's youngest victims," says Stanton.
