Military Veteran And Cancer Survivor Will Cook For 'The King'

"This is really cool to honor our military veterans and their families," said Almirola.  "All of our military veterans are heroes, but when you hear a story like Fabian's, who is a single father and who has survived cancer, it makes it even better to give back.  We're going to make sure he has a good time with the crew this weekend."

Eckrich will also donate up to $250,000 to Operation Homefront this year through the contribution of five cents from each purchase of specially marked products from May 1 through July 4.

"As we continue our partnerships with Richard Petty Motorsports and Operation Homefront, it remains important for us to honor our military veterans and their families," said Charles Gitkin, vice president, marketing, innovation and R&D for the John Morrell Food Group. "Fabian and his family have sacrificed immensely, but with the help of Operation Homefront they have been able to overcome great obstacles.  We now want to honor Fabian by giving him an experience that hopefully he will never forget."

Almirola and the No. 43 Eckrich Ford will race Saturday night at the Texas Motor Speedway.  The event will be televised live by FOX and begin at 7:30 p.m. ET.
