Starting Friday, April 12, 2019, Team Fastrax™ will perform special patriotic demonstrations at the ToyotaCare 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash Race and Toyota Owners 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at what surely is an impressive weekend for Richmond race fans.
At the start of each race, Team Fastrax™ will execute expertly coordinated aerial demonstrations, by skydiving in during the National Anthem with their 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, a 1,000 sq. ft. “Richmond is for Racing Lovers” flag and the Honor and Remember Flag. The Honor and Remember Flag is dedicated to Gold Star families and contains more than 350 signatures from Gold Star families who have lost a family member in the service of our country.
“We are privileged to be performing our patriotic American Flag skydive during such a thrilling weekend at Richmond Raceway,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “The NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity races are very ambitious, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of it.”
