600 Miles of Remembrance
Stenhouse and the No. 17 Fastenal Ford will participate in “600 Miles of Remembrance” to honor those who sacrificed their lives in service of the country. As part of this tribute, the name of LCpl Taylor B. Prazynski will replace “Stenhouse Jr” on the windshield of the No. 17 Ford.
Taylor Prazynski, the son of a staff sergeant, was born on Veterans Day in 1984 at Hill Air Force Base in Utah and lived his first four years on bases in Utah and Illinois. The family then moved to Fairfield, Ohio, where Taylor adopted The Army Goods Store on Dixie Highway as his favorite hangout. Since 1990 the store has hung a picture of six-year-old Taylor, in a beret and camouflage jumpsuit, on a wall behind the counter. He left to serve in Iraq in January 2005 and passed away on Monday, May 9th of that year while fighting alongside his U.S. Marine Corps battalion. He was 20 years old.
