Heise LED Lighting Systems will adorn the quarter panels of Dye's No. 21 Race to Stop Suicide Chevy SS, with additional support from B&L Construction, Solar-Fit, and KIX Country 98.7.
200 Laps of ARCA Menards Series action at "The Last Great Colosseum" can be seen live on FS1 and the FOX Sports Go App beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, September 16.

Competing on the race track against some of the best drivers in the country is what captures headlines. And although winning is special, there's a more important cause in Daniel and his team's hearts that provides tremendous motivation.
Through the 'Race to Stop Suicide' program, Daniel Dye Racing works to support behavioral service programs for children and adolescents, as well as education and training for the local community and various places the team competes.
Since the introduction of Race to Stop Suicide on Daniel's #43, he and the team have received multiple messages from folks who were profoundly impacted by its presence. In two instances, the person indicated their intent to commit suicide but were steered in a new direction after seeing Daniel's car and social media messaging.
Suicide is a preventable public health problem and a leading cause of death in the United States. More investment in suicide prevention, education and research will prevent the untimely deaths of thousands of Americans each year.
