Fox Sports reports that “this weekend, NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers will bear the names of active military units and installations on their race car windshields during Friday’s Subway Firecracker 250 Powered By Coca-Cola at Daytona International Speedway.”  

“Several NASCAR XFINITY Series teams that have personal or direct connections to the units displayed on their race cars will honor the military. Driver Brendan Gaughan’s windshield will read ’23RD STS,’ representing the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron (U.S. Air Force) from Hurlburt Field in Fort Walton, Fla.”  

“Elliott Sadler’s windshield will honor Fort Campbell to recognize JR Motorsports employee Lee Langley, who served for six years at the Army base as an infantry team leader in the 101st Airborne Division.”
