Many thanks to Jeff Lehnert and everyone involved in the recent Jeepers Back the Blue Foundation event. Over 750 Jeeps as well as 2,000 spectators rolled into Dover International Speedway, the famed NASCAR track known as Monster Mile in Dover, Delaware.
“We had officers from Delaware State Police, New Castle County Police, Wilmington Police Department, Dover Police Department, Seaford Police Department, Milford Police Department, Middletown Police Department, University of Delaware Police, and DNREC, ” said Lehnert, who helped organize the annual charity event. “We had mounted patrols, K-9 units, mobile command centers, swat vehicles, explosive ordinance division vehicles, helicopters, and motorcycles from many of the various units.”
Banks donated various Jeep performance parts to be raffled off in an effort to raise money for the foundation.
The event raised almost $74,000 for the families of fallen or injured police officers. “Pretty epic event if I do say so myself, and will only get bigger in the coming years,” Lehnert says with heart full of pride. “Thanks again to Banks for the support and I can’t wait for next year!”
