Five years ago, AARP recruited Jeff Gordon as its spokesman to raise awareness to the number of undernourished senior Americans. Following the four-time Sprint Cup champions retirement, AARP will continue its crusade with Kasey Kahne.

Drive to End Hunger will serve as the primary sponsor on the No. 5 Chevy for two races — Bristol Motor Speedway (Aug. 20) and Texas Motor Speedway (Nov. 6) in the Chase.

“Winning races takes a team, and teamwork is at the core of all our efforts to create a food-secure nation,” said Lisa Marsh Ryerson, AARP Foundation president. “That’s why we are so pleased to continue our relationship with Rick Hendrick, whose commitment to winning is unparalleled, and to have Kasey Kahne join us as we work to help the more than 10 million older Americans who face the threat of hunger every single day.”

Kahne joined Hendrick Motorsports in 2012. He’s scored five races since taking over the No. 5 car and qualified for the Chase in three of the past four years.

Since AARP’s partnership began with HMS in 2011, more than 34 million meals have been donated to seniors. Kahne hopes build on the program’s earlier success.

“Drive to End Hunger has been an incredible partner of Hendrick Motorsports,” Kahne said. “They made an unbelievable impact with Jeff, and I’m excited to work with them to continue those efforts and make a difference for the millions of older Americans who need our support. We hope to do as much good as possible and keep building this great relationship.”
