Redneck Riviera, celebrates the men and women who make America the greatest nation in the world. In partnership with Red Gold, Redneck Riviera recently launched a new line of 1776 BBQ sauces.

“What an honor to be on hand to recognize my friends at the Folds of Honor Practice Day presented by my partners, Red Gold. Folds is one of the most prolific organizations in assisting fallen heroes’ families through their scholarship program. Since the Redneck Riviera launch, we have donated a portion of all sales to Folds of Honor and I have had the opportunity to meet many of those recipients that we have helped send to college.  Now, with my friends and partners at Red Gold, we can bring more attention to the foundation with our recently launched 1776 BBQ. Red Gold is a full on ‘made in America’ company, just like Redneck and we have just revved our engines and hitting the store shelves just in time for the All-American cookout season. I look forward to seeing everyone in Indy on May 20th and God bless America.”

Fans will have the opportunity to join the cause by attending the May 20th practice day, donating directly to Folds of Honor Indiana through a virtual Race, and joining in a fundraising auction effort online.
