DENVER - Colorado's NASCAR team will honor Colorado's fallen veterans on Memorial Day weekend.
The Furniture Row race car will feature the Colorado Freedom Memorial name emblazoned on its hood at the 55th Annual Coca-Cola 600.
The Colorado Freedom Memorial in Aurora honors every fallen Colorado military veteran by name, from every branch of service and every conflict dating back to the Spanish American War in 1896.
The Memorial is made up of glass panels and includes the names of nearly 6000 Colorado veterans.
"Donating the hood of our No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet SS to the Colorado Freedom Memorial is a small, but meaningful way that we can pay tribute to those who have offered the greatest sacrifice for our freedoms,” said Furniture Row Racing Owner, Barney Visser.
Visser is a Vietnam veteran.
Coloradans can see the special Furniture Row Chevrolet at the Colorado Freedom Memorial on Tuesday, May 20 from 4 to 6 p.m.
The memorial is across the street from Buckley Air Force Base at Aurora’s Springhill Community Park at 756 Telluride Street.
