The Quaker State 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race held at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY. Just as fans are getting geared up for the waving of the green flag to start the race, Team Fastrax™ will skydive in with their 1,100 sq. ft. American Flag along with two jumpers with another 1,000 sq. ft. American Flag tethered between them as they race towards the ground at 60 MPH. It will be a breathtaking view from both above and below.
“We are honored to be performing at a NASCAR event so close to home.,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “The Quaker State 400 is a very competitive race that local fans look forward to every year. We’re happy to be part of the excitement.”
According to the Kentucky Speedway website, this weekend’s events will include the Alsco 300 and Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 races. Fans will also be treated to lots of autograph opportunities in the Fan Zone and entertainment on the Trackside Live Stage.
