The weekend of August 31st to September 3rd was to be a celebration of Shell and Pennzoil coming together in 2002 with a special paint scheme on Joey Logano’s No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion at Darlington Raceway over the official “Throwback Weekend of NASCAR”. But Shell and Logano reached out to the NASCAR community to come together in an effort to bring assistance to those impacted by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and looming Hurricane Irma.
On Tuesday, August 29th, Shell informed the American Red Cross that it would make an initial contribution of $1 million to the Hurricane Harvey disaster relief fund. Shell-Pennzoil NASCAR driver Joey Logano announced the following day that he would also donate $25,000 to the American Red Cross and would open a donation portal through his Joey Logano Foundation that would collect funds for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief.
