As Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and XFINITY Series drivers prepare for this weekend’s Coca-Cola 600 and Hisense 4k TV 300 this Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, honoring the country’s fallen military personnel is also a priority.

Activities to honor those who have sacrificed their lives will continue throughout the week, including the #NASCARSalutes social media campaign and on-track program, culminating in the huge military-themed prerace display on Sunday. Several drivers sent their own messages via social media. And the patriotic paint schemes will be prominent.
