Mooresville, NC (September 10th, 2021) – Rick Ware Racing announced today its partnership with Biohaven's Nurtec® ODT (rimegepant) and Nine Line Apparel to honor the victims of 9/11 on the 20th anniversary of the attacks. Garrett Smithley will pilot the No. 51 Nurtec ODT 9/11 tribute car at Richmond Raceway for the Federated Auto Parts 400 Salute to First Responders.
Garrett Smithley, Rick Ware Racing commented, “In memory of the lives lost that fateful day in September, I am honored to drive the 20th Anniversary 9/11 Tribute car for the Federated Auto Parts 400 Salute to First Responders at Richmond Raceway. The Nurtec ODT No. 51 car will have the names of nearly 3,000 victims who senselessly lost their lives on that day. Together, we remember the fallen, the survivors and the first responders who didn’t hesitate to help those in need.”
Nine Line Apparel created a "We Remember" t-shirt in which 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Tunnel to Towers, a foundation that is dedicated to honoring the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller, who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. The foundation also honors military and first responders who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country. Through the sale of the t-shirt over $120,000 so far has been raised for Tunnel to Towers.
Vlad Coric, M.D., CEO of Biohaven said, “We are proud to be a part of the Rick Ware Racing team and work with Nine Line Apparel on such a meaningful opportunity to commemorate the lives lost and families impacted by the 9/11 attacks. Additionally, we are pleased to be part of this effort to help raise funds for the Tunnel to Towers foundation to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller and other heroes like him. We also will continue through our Military Salutes Program with Rick Ware Racing and the drivers of the Nurtec ODT No. 51 car to support active-duty service members, their families and veterans, which also includes support for our first responders.”
"As a veteran owned giveback organization, our brand was built on the foundation of honoring those heroes we've lost in service to our country," said Rich Caponi, Chief Revenue Officer of Nine Line. "We know that Biohaven and Rick Ware Racing share this same passion, which is why we feel privileged to honor the legacy of all who lost their lives 20 years ago - first responder and civilian alike. To those that were lost - know that we truly believe that 'no day shall erase you from the memory of time.'"

About NURTEC ODT
NURTEC ODT (rimegepant) is the first and only calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist available in a quick-dissolve ODT formulation that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura and the preventive treatment of episodic migraine in adults. The activity of the neuropeptide CGRP is thought to play a causal role in migraine pathophysiology. NURTEC ODT is a CGRP receptor antagonist that works by reversibly blocking CGRP receptors, thereby inhibiting the biologic activity of the CGRP neuropeptide. The recommended dose of NURTEC ODT is 75 mg, taken as needed, up to once daily to treat or every other day to help prevent migraine attacks. For more information about NURTEC ODT, visit www.nurtec.com. The most common adverse reaction was nausea and abdominal pain/indigestion. Avoid concomitant administration of NURTEC ODT with strong inhibitors of CYP3A4, strong or moderate inducers of CYP3A or inhibitors of P-gp or BCRP. Avoid another dose of NURTEC ODT within 48 hours when it is administered with moderate inhibitors of CYP3A4.
NURTEC ODT orally disintegrating tablets is a prescription medicine that is used to treat migraine in adults. It is for the acute treatment of migraine attacks with or without aura and the preventive treatment of episodic migraine. It is not known if NURTEC ODT is safe and effective in children.
