NASCAR to Honor Frontline and Military Heroes Alike in

NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola

Industry-wide platform to kick off with 2020 Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 at the Brickyard

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 1, 2020) – Beginning this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and running through July 31, the NASCAR industry will honor United States Armed Forces and frontline healthcare heroes as part of this year's expanded NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola – an industry-wide opportunity to recognize and thank those who have gone above and beyond to keep society safe and healthy.

 

For the first time ever, NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola will kick off with the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 at the Brickyard (Sunday, July 5 at 4 p.m. ET on NBC, IMS Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), as the platform shifts to a mid-summer window due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

NASCAR Premier Partner Coca-Cola returns as the presenting sponsor of NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola, as the company will take an active role curating and highlighting stories of frontline personnel and other heroes during the platform window.

 

"We take pride in honoring all who work tirelessly to keep our nation safe, whether a frontline worker in the fight against COVID-19 or part of our U.S. Armed Forces protecting us around the world," said Jill Gregory, executive vice president and chief marketing and content officer, NASCAR. "The NASCAR industry has always been passionate about saluting our nation's heroes both past and present, and we once again look forward to recognizing those who serve."

 

As part of the evolved campaign for 2020, NASCAR and Coca-Cola will create content opportunities to celebrate heroic work from our military and first responder community during the COVID-19 pandemic. In partnership with NBC, NASCAR and Coca-Cola will celebrate heroes in the military and medical community, and NASCAR and Coca-Cola's dedicated actions to support our community. Through NASCAR digital and social channels, the industry will spotlight even more stories with a new "NASCAR Salutes Refreshing Moments" feature that will also be hosted on NASCAR.com/Salutes.

 

"While this crisis has impacted everyone's daily lives, we are able to race because of the selfless acts by our military community and frontline workers," said John Mount, vice president, sports marketing and region assets, Coca-Cola North America. "NASCAR Salutes offers an impactful opportunity to showcase our pride and appreciation for these heroes and their families."

 

While NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola shifted due to COVID-19, the industry continued its tradition honoring fallen service members during the annual Memorial Day Weekend 600 Miles of Remembrance at the Coca-Cola 600. All 40 NASCAR Cup Series cars featured the name of a fallen service member on the windshield during the race in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

 

The next weekend during the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Xfinity recognized its military community employees from across the company that are working to keep communities safe and connected during the pandemic. Among those recognized were 23 employees actively serving in the National Guard who are responding to the current crisis. The names of those Comcast employees, and a patriotic red, white and blue design replaced the Xfinity logo adorning each drivers' windshield.  

 

A number of other NASCAR Official Partners leaned in to support the program as well:

NASCAR Statement - FBI INVESTIGATION

NASCAR Statement


"The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime. The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team's arrival and garage assignment. We appreciate the FBI's quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba. We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing."

NASCAR Appoints Brandon Thompson to Vice President, Diversity and Inclusion

NASCAR Appoints Brandon Thompson to Vice President, Diversity and Inclusion

Thompson to Lead Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Programs; 17-year Industry Veteran Transitions to New Role After Leading NASCAR Touring Series

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 16, 2020) – NASCAR today announced the appointment of industry veteran Brandon Thompson to  the newly created position of Vice President, Diversity and Inclusion. In this role, Thompson will lead the sanctioning body's strategy for diversity and inclusion, as well as programs and initiatives designed to champion and enhance diversity across the NASCAR industry.

 

Thompson recently served as Managing Director of the NASCAR Touring Series and in his new role will be based in Charlotte, N.C. He will report to Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Content Officer, Jill Gregory.

 

"Brandon is an established and well-respected leader in our sport who will help NASCAR realize its vision in creating a more diverse industry," said Gregory. "This new position and Brandon's appointment reinforces our steadfast commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for our fans, industry and employees."

 

Thompson will oversee an existing team of NASCAR employees responsible for multicultural programs and initiatives including the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program, as well as strategic alliances with the Institute for Sport and Social Justice and the Diversity and Inclusion Sports Consortium.

 

The team includes Dawn Harris, who has been elevated to the position of Managing Director, Diversity and Inclusion. Harris will continue to manage diversity programs as well as cultivate and strengthen NASCAR relationships with national and local civic organizations across the country.

 

Under Thompson's leadership, NASCAR will look to grow and expand upon the sanctioning body's current platform with a diversity and inclusion strategy that will extend across the NASCAR industry and position the sport to attract top diverse talent – on and off the track.

 

"NASCAR has made significant progress in the areas of diversity and inclusion and we now have an opportunity to build on our momentum – both as a company and industry," said Thompson. "It is with great passion and energy that we will champion our sport as accepting and welcoming of all individuals interested in being part of the NASCAR family."

 

Thompson was appointed to oversee the NASCAR Touring Series in 2016. Following NASCAR's purchase of the ARCA Racing Series, he managed the integration of the NASCAR Pro Series into the ARCA Menards Series and spearheaded the launch of competition under one banner in 2020.

 

Thompson's leadership also contributed to the growth of NASCAR's international series and notably the NASCAR Pinty's Series in Canada.

 

Thompson began his career in motorsports as an intern at Nashville Superspeedway in 2003, a role he applied for through the NASCAR Diversity Internship Program. The Nashville native and 17-year industry veteran now becomes the first diversity intern graduate to join NASCAR's executive ranks as an officer.

 

As the most visible of NASCAR's diversity initiatives, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program has helped create a path to national series competition for multicultural drivers such as Bubba Wallace and Daniel Suarez. More than 50 graduates of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Pit Crew Development Program are now working in NASCAR, including more than 30 crew member alumni competing in the NASCAR Cup Series.

ARCA Menards West Returns To Racing At Utah & Irwindale

TOLEDO, Ohio — The 2020 ARCA Menards Series West season will resume with a doubleheader at Utah Motorsports Campus on Saturday, June 27, and a race at California's Irwindale Speedway on Saturday, July 4.

The West will run two 30-lap championship points events on Utah's 2.2-mile East course, with the first race scheduled for 4 p.m. MT and the second immediately following.

It will mark the first ARCA race at the world-class road course located just outside Salt Lake City. The West Series has run there 10 times between 2007-16 under the NASCAR banner, including from 2011-14 on the 2.2-mile course.

Current NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Noah Gragson swept a doubleheader at Utah in 2016.

The races will be run per state and local guidelines.

RELATED: West Series Race History at Utah | West Series Race History at Irwindale

ARCA will also make its inaugural trip to Irwindale, the progressive-banked, half-mile oval outside of Los Angeles that has been a series' staple since it opened in 1999. The West has run 27 points events there, most recently with Trevor Huddleston edging Tanner Gray by .03 seconds last season.

The 125-lap race will be run without pit stops.

Irwindale will be run with the event limited to essential race personnel only and no spectators per state and local guidelines.

The races will be the first for the West since its opener Feb. 20 at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, won by Sam Mayer.
