NASCAR Honors Virginia Tech

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing has received permission from Virginia Tech to display the school’s logo on race cars for the next three weeks, in a tribute to the victims of this week’s shootings at the university's Blacksburg, Va. campus.

The logo will be displayed against a black background on the "B-post" – the area just to the right of the driver’s side window net – of cars competing in NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series and NASCAR Busch Series events at Phoenix International Raceway (Friday and Saturday), Talladega Superspeedway (April 28-29) and Richmond International Raceway (May 4-5).

Additionally, trucks competing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event April 28 at Kansas Speedway also will display the logo.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their family members, their friends – and the entire Virginia Tech community," said NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France. "We wanted to make a simple, but strong, gesture of remembrance. We are grateful the university gave us clearance to display their logo."
