Seven time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson will have a special livery for this weekend’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway commemorating World War 2 military vehicles on his No.48 Ally Racing Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and speaking about the livery he said:

“Memorial Day is a special time and I’m so thankful that everyone associated with NASCAR puts out a big effort for all the men and women who have served our country. Both my grandfathers served and my brother-in-law served. “To have Corporal Deans on my car and run a special paint scheme is a big honor for me to recognize the individual, and all those who have lost a loved one.”

Air Force veteran Shevsky said:

The ‘600 miles of remembrance’ Memorial weekend race is a very public tribute to the service and sacrifice made by so many Americans from all the military branches.”With the donation to the USO’s Protect the Force 2020 initiative, we hope to help ease the hardships faced by military families as their loved ones work to protect Americans from new, public health threats at home as well as enemies abroad.”
