SPIKE TV’s Bar Rescue is a popular reality TV series. Host Jon Taffer, a long-time food and beverage industry consultant specializing in nightclubs and pubs, offers his professional expertise plus renovations and equipment —at no charge— to desperately failing bars in order to save them from closing.

In 2013, NASCAR Race Mom had the honor of meeting Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds as Crown Royal honored this American Hero with naming rights to a NASCAR Sprint Cup Race. The “Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by” was held on Sunday, July 28, 2013.

While deployed in Iraq, Gunnery Sgt. Samuel Deeds, a diehard NASCAR fan, dreamed of working in the sport after completing his service. However, in 2005, those dreams took a back seat when Deeds placed himself in harm’s way to save the lives of his fellow Marines.

Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a vehicle checkpoint. Upon seeing fellow Marines approaching, he exposed himself to the device, risking his own life to save others. He was severely injured and underwent more than 30 surgeries and procedures following the blast.

Three years later, while still recovering, Deeds’ heroic instincts took charge once again when he saved the lives of three individuals caught in a rip tide off the coast of North Carolina.

Now Crown Royal is teaming up with the 'Bar Rescue,' to honor heroes once again. Samuel Deeds will be featured during this very special Veteran’s Day marathon airing this Sunday, November 9th beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Samuel will appear in a series of short videos alongside Taffer, during which he’ll talk about different aspect of his military career; from his time joining the military, to inspiring and guiding other veterans, to what it meant to be honored on a national level through Crown Royal’s “Your Hero’s Name Here” program!
