NASCAR Drivers Look Forward to Racing on Memorial Day Weekend

This week NASCAR celebrates the Memorial Day holiday with Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte. NASCAR remembers our fallen heroes and NASCAR announces the latest Hall of Fame class:

FOX’s Marghiee Teshineh with “FOX In The Fast Lane”: 

The Coca Cola 600, the longest race on the Sprint Cup circuit, is an annual tradition for NASCAR and Brad Keselowski is happy to see the sport embracing a new tradition:

(Keselowski) “This year as has been the last few years, NASCAR has the initiative of putting fallen soldiers’ names on the roofs their race cars, so we are proud to have the name of Sergeant Prentler on our car.”

Martin Truex Jr. says NASCAR does a great job of honoring the nation’s service men and women all year round, but especially on Memorial Day:

(Truex Jr.) “It means a lot to all of us to have soldiers at the race track every weekend, no matter where we’re at, but especially you know the 600 weekend.”

And congratulations to the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2017 which includes team owners like Rick Hendrick and Richard Childress, along with drivers Benny Parsons and Mark Martin.

(Martin) “It is by far the crown jewel, by the the crown jewel of my career.”
