Curtiss Shaver - Crown Royal Finalist

Crown Royal "Your Hero's Name Here 400"

Curtiss Shaver, 37, of Troy, Ala. is a certified EMT, paramedic and current Lieutenant of the Troy Fire Department. Shaver was nominated by a fellow firefighter for his commitment and dedication to give back not only to the Troy Fire Department, but to the community as a whole, despite what many would consider a handicap.

At the age of 18, he was involved in a severe farming accident, resulting in the amputation of his left leg. Inspired by the desire to give back to others after being aided by good Samaritans during his accident, Shaver completed extensive rehabilitation and training and was hired by the very same fire department that responded to his farming emergency. 

Excited about the opportunity to share the NASCAR experience in Indianapolis with the other four finalists, Shaver views this nomination as a true honor.

Remember Voting begins on May 21st on the Crown Royal Facebook site.
