Pat McAfee has created a new company, Shirts for America, and has teamed up with Dale Coyne Racing to sponsor Conor Daly in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, the Indianapolis Colts punter announced Wednesday.


The Shirts For America company was formed from two ideas — One, to help an Indiana driver at this year’s Indy 500 and the other, to help two military foundations. 

Two veterans groups in Indiana will benefit from the shirt sales — Wish for Our Heroes and the Pat McAfee Foundation.

"It was a perfect opportunity that just showed up," McAfee said. "It really just showed up because of a conversation he (Daly) and I had. It should be really good.

"They are shirts that will quench for patriotism that people have deep in their stomachs. They're ones that you heard about when you born, that this is the country that people come to make great things happen and chase their dreams.

"This is the place to come chase your dream."

Daly's No. 18 car has shed its white, green and black for red, white and blue. The American flag will be featured on the nose as well as on the shark fin, with the logo placed prominently on the side pods. 

The all-American No.18 machine will make its first public appearance on Thursday, May 19 during the noon to 6 p.m. practice session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
