Jeffrey Earnhardt's Xfinity Car Carries a Message of Hope

TGR Staff - 02/23/2022

Harvest Ministries, Pastor Greg Laurie, and ForeverLawn have announced their sponsorship of Jeffrey Earnhardt and the "Black and Green Grass Machine" at the Production Alliance Group 300, in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Our immediate thought was that ForeverLawn was a new cemetery for Greg Laurie's "megachurch" in Riverside, California but it turns out it is a synthetic grass company. 

Pastor Greg and Harvest were honored when ForeverLawn generously offered to let Harvest design a car for the race at Fontana Speedway, our design for the Number 26 car pays homage to the aesthetics of the original black and green grass machine ForeverLawn car, combined with Harvest style. This car will carry the message of hope in Jesus, while tens of thousands tune in from across the country to see Jeffrey Earnhardt race.
