We are celebrating NASCAR Salutes this weekend in the Xfinity Series. Which military unit will be on the car this weekend and is there any significance to this?
“It’s great that we get to celebrate our military this weekend since it’s because of them that we are allowed to do this as a career. We will have the First Security Force Assistance Brigade of the US Army from Fort Benning, Georgia riding along with us. Mike Shiplett actually brought this to us as his wife’s cousin is a Captain and is stationed here, so we thought it would be great to celebrate someone even closer to us. The best part about it is that he will actually be at the track with his family this weekend and will get to join in with the team to celebrate this cause.”
