MEMPHIS, Tenn. – July 3, 2013 – The Ducks Unlimited logo will reach speeds in excess of 190 mph this weekend during the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway thanks to a generous partnership with Bass Pro Shops.

"Johnny Morris and Bass Pro Shops have always been great partners, and their generosity never ceases to amaze me," said DU CEO Dale Hall. "The fact that they support DU’s mission speaks volumes about the company and their commitment to conservation."
