MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Oct. 15, 2013 – The Ducks Unlimited (DU) logo will reach high speeds once again this weekend during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, thanks to a generous partnership with Bass Pro Shops. The DU logo wrap will appear on Ty Dillon’s No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/Ducks Unlimited Chevrolet truck during the Fred's 250 at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 19.

"Thanks to Johnny Morris and his staff at Bass Pro Shops, this will be the second time this year that DU will be featured on a NASCAR vehicle," said DU CEO Dale Hall. "Tony Stewart finished a close second in the Daytona race, and I can't wait to see how Ty Dillon fares at Talladega."

Weekend festivities in Talladega are slated to begin at 1 p.m. on Oct. 19 with the NASCAR truck series race.

Saturday’s race also falls in the middle of DU Month at Bass Pro Shops stores across the U.S. and Canada. Throughout October, Bass Pro Shops will offer customers the opportunity to donate $2 to Ducks Unlimited and enter for a chance to win one of 10 Bass Pro Shops’ $500 gift cards.

"DU Month is but one more way Bass Pro Shops supports conservation and the Ducks Unlimited mission," Hall said. "Johnny Morris’ generosity has put DU in front of tens of thousands of outdoors men and women across the country, and the fact that Bass Pro is such a strong supporter of DU’s mission speaks volumes about the company and their commitment to conservation."
