NASCAR racer makes pitstop at Miles for Migraine event at Bushnell Park in Hartford

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven-based Biohaven Pharmaceuticals brought its NASCAR racer up to the Miles for Migraine event at Bushnell Park in Hartford Saturday. In partnership with Rick Ware Racing, the purple Nurtec ODT #51 car is part of its Military Salutes Program.

Active-duty service members, veterans, and their families face unique challenges and are disproportionately affected by migraines.

The campaign honors members of the military, including local hero Army Captain Andrew Pedersen-Keel, who died in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.

The captain’s name will be etched into the windshield of the #51 racecar in the upcoming Coke-600 race.
