That was a tremendous opportunity to get to see our nation’s heroes on the active duty side,” said Keselowski. “It was a great chance to engage. Sometimes I think we rely on people to come to us, but sometimes you’ve got to go to the people... They’re busy, so they can’t always make it to see us and I enjoy going to see them.”
Prior to the longest race on the NASCAR schedule, Charlotte Motor Speedway hosted guests from all branches of the military, including sailors from the USS Gerald R. Ford. Their visit to the track allowed Keselowski to return the favor by meeting with them pre-race and setting up a tour of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage.
