NASCAR has a long-standing tradition of supporting the brave men and women who devote their lives to protecting our country. During this special time period running from May 25-July 5, the industry will have the opportunity to collectively express our reverence, respect, and gratitude to the millions of members of the United States Armed Forces for the sacrifices they have made in defending our nation.
“Honoring our nation’s military is a long standing tradition in our sport,” said NASCAR President Mike Helton. “The NASCAR: An American Salute platform truly enables us to collectively express our gratitude to the millions of members of the U.S. armed forces and their families for the sacrifices they have made in defending our nation.”
During the seven-week span between the two races, teams, tracks, partners and fans will show their thanks through various activities on and off the track. The wider NASCAR community can show gratitude by visiting NASCAR.com/Salute and using the hashtag #NASCARsalutes on Instagram and Twitter.
