The front bumper off the No. 43 was placed on the No. 34 hauler
immediately after an on-track incident between McDowell and Wallace
during the NASCAR All-Star race event. Front Row Motorsports (FRM)
and McDowell quickly made plans to auction the bumper to benefit
MRO with the blessing of Wallace and RPM as well as the aid of The
NASCAR Foundation. The bumper proved to be a popular item, and in
its first day of bidding rose to over $15,000. A final push put it
over to $20,000 with the final bid coming from CarParts.com.
"We are proud and excited to be a participant in the NASCAR
community," said Lev Peker, CEO of CarParts.com. "We felt that
making the final bid allowed us to continue to do good for everyone
in the community - and beyond. We're proud to donate to Motor
Racing Outreach on behalf of Front Row Motorsports and #34 Michael
McDowell and make an additional donation to Victory Junction on
behalf of Richard Petty Motorsports and #43 Bubba Wallace."

providing spiritual support to drivers and their families. MRO is

charitable organization relies on donations to continue to travel
and serve. McDowell serves as a board member.
"I have to thank our partner, CarParts.com for making such a
generous impact to MRO, through The NASCAR Foundation, and to
Victory Junction," said McDowell. "It's amazing to see the
