Driver windshields will look slightly different as the NASCAR Xfinity Series returns to Bristol Motor Speedway on Monday June 1.

The normal Xfinity logo will be replaced with employee names and a patriotic red, white and blue design as Xfinity salutes military employees from all across the company who are working to keep communities both safe and connected during this difficult time.

Among those being recognized are 23 Xfinity employees actively serving in the National Guard who are responding to the current crisis impacting the country.

“This global crisis has challenged everyone to step up and prioritize those around us, so we wanted to showcase our pride and salute the selfless efforts of our employees with this unique recognition on all NASCAR Xfinity Series race cars,” said Matt Lederer, Comcast’s Vice President of Brand Partnerships & Activation.

“Comcast is proud of our employees nationwide that are coming together to support our customers and communities during this national crisis.”

One of those employees who will adorn the windshield of a NASCAR Xfinity Series ride is Marine veteran Dennis Collopy who will race on one of Mike Harmon Racing’s entries. 

“Our company is proud of its military community employees, both veterans and those serving today in the National Guard and reserve, who are on the front-lines of the fight against the pandemic,” said Brigadier General (Ret.) Carol Eggert, Senior Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs at Comcast NBCUniversal.

“The dedication of these military employees as they leave an impact in our communities showcases Comcast’s core service values in these difficult times and represents a unique and powerful way our teammates continue to respond to this global crisis.”

Additionally, a few other honorees include Deeva Williams, a recently mobilized National Guard solider who distributes prepackaged meals at mobile food banks in Tacoma, Washington. Another honoree, Rachel Catanting, assists the National Guard with safety programs and procedures at testing centers within’ the state of Florida. She also helps collaborate on key operations to minimize risk during the mission.

Also, being honored are Stephen Rolston, who’s National Guard unit is helping to assist the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and Ashley Farmer, a third-generation member who uses her military experience to push her teammates forward.

Throughout the week, Xfinity will recognize these front-line heroes’ stories using #XfinitySalutes and on @XfinityRacing’s Twitter and Instagram outlets. For more information around Xfinity’s crisis response, visit xfinity.com/prepare.

    My hero was the Pastor who prayed before the race. Thank you sir for you thoughts, words and spiritual understanding of our world today. Your prayer was an awesome blessing to me. And thank you NASCAR for keeping prayers in the sport that we love so much.
