Hollywood Stuntman Barrett Returns To XFINITY Series Promoting First Directorial Piece

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 24, 2015) - - Just finishing his latest motion picture, Hollywood stuntman Stanton Barrett carries the adrenaline to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, site of Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Lilly Diabetes 250.

Barrett has teamed up with Rick Ware Racing (RWR) to compete in his third XFINITY Series race of the season. Earlier this year, Barrett competed in events at Auto Club (Calif.) Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively.

Craving for his passion and love for NASCAR racing, Barrett would have to take a short sabbatical from the race track for a life on the road doing the other career he’s very well known for, a star-studded profession in Hollywood.

This weekend though, Barrett makes a grand return to NASCAR with his newest Hollywood credential completed.

“I enjoy and appreciate every opportunity I have to compete in NASCAR,” said Barrett. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be around the sport for a long time, but never race at Indianapolis. I get goose bumps just thinking about it. For me though, Indianapolis is important for many more reasons.”

Racers throughout the country dream of racing on the famed bricks of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but for Barrett, it’s more than just race, it’s the groundwork to a blockbuster schedule shaping up for the rest of the year.

Barrett will utilize the 18th race of the season to promote the upcoming movie Navy Seals vs. Zombies which embarks his directorial debut. Coming in fall 2015, Navy Seals vs. Zombies released by Anchor Bay Entertainment is an action horror film starring Michael Dudikoff, Rick Fox, Ed Quinn and Lolo Jones. The film also features actual Navy Seals utilizing realistic tactics.

“We’re real proud of the film,” added Barrett who flew to Indianapolis Thursday after wrapping up post-production obligations of Navy Seals vs. Zombies. “This movie marks my directorial debut and through the hard work and endless efforts of the cast and staff, this fall we’ll have a film that we hope we’ll leave a lot of people satisfied.”

While earning a solid finish in Saturday afternoon’s Lilly Diabetes 250 is a top priority, the Bishop, California native also knows that the NASCAR market is mega source for exposure.

“I’ve been fortunate enough through my NASCAR career to have some great sponsors who have seen tremendous return-on-investment and exposure because of the loyalty from NASCAR fans and the industry as a whole from driver to teams and even race tracks. Several major motion pictures and actors have utilized NASCAR to promote an upcoming film and I’m ecstatic we’re the latest to continue that path.”

While promoting Navy Seals vs. Zombies is important, Barrett isn’t losing focus on another project, 4Caring.org.

Founded by Barrett, 4Caring.org is an organization to reach out and comfort those with personal crisis. The organization’s primary desire is to reach out those in hospital waiting rooms like children’s cancer centers, intensive care units and other related children’s area. However, the organization is not restricted to just children, but people in need for care.

“4Caring.org is very important to me,” added Barrett, driver of the No. 15 Navy Seals vs. Zombies / 4Caring.org Ford Mustang. “It’s an organization that helps those dealing with crisis situations on a variety of different levels. I’m here to do a job this weekend to do a good job behind the wheel – but spreading the word that there are options for those who need it the most.”

In addition to 4Caring.org, Rick Ware Racing and Barrett welcome ZIPPO as an associate sponsor for Barrett’s 196th career NXS start.
