Beginning Memorial Day weekend and running through Independence Day weekend, the NASCAR industry will honor United States Armed Forces heroes and their families as part of NASCAR Salutes Refreshed by Coca-Cola - an industry-wide expression of respect, appreciation and reverence for those who have served the nation both past and present.

At noon on Friday, a Stars and Stripes-enhanced Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series hauler parade will make its way through Gate 2, around the east side of the facility before entering the infield. The Joliet Police and Fire Departments will lead the way followed by the Chicagoland Speedway Pace Car chauffeuring an honorary veteran guest. Chicagoland Speedway Fire Safety Trucks with Chicagoland Speedway Mascot DASH, vintage Military Vehicles, Patriot Guard Motorcycle Riders, the Fallen Hero Memorial Hauler and more will accompany the parade as well.

Returning this year, under the NASCAR Salutes platform, the VIP Military Tent in Champions Park will welcome all veterans, active military, and their families on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30.
