RCR and Dow Honor Veterans With No. 3 Paint Scheme for July 4th Holiday Weekend Race

The presence of a special paint scheme will be in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 5. Austin Dillon will take on the action at the track with more than 1,200 veteran names on the No. 3 Dow Salutes Veterans Chevrolet. Each name will honor the sacrifices from the men and women who are employees, contractors, and family members of both Dow and Richard Childress Racing.

For the sixth year, the partnership between RCR and Dow created a patriotic paint scheme with the personal touch of each veteran’s name on the hood of the Dow Salutes Veterans Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. All six divisions of the United States Armed Forces will be represented for the Independence Day weekend race.

VetNet, Dow’s Veterans Employee Resource Group, supports veterans for their values, commitment, and skills they bring to the workforce. This partnership, focusing on VetNet and RCR, is to recognize the people as the heart of the culture. The names of the 1,200 veterans will lie close to the heart of the race car this Fourth of July weekend.

"To have a company, that is both sponsoring RCR and partnering with veterans, is a huge honor and privilege by allowing us to have our names featured on the car," said Shane Greer, Track IT Support at RCR. Greer served for the United States Marine Corps as a M1A1 Tank Crewman and Embarkation Logistics. "It is something unique that I look forward to every year when the car is revealed, and I get to find my name along with other veterans."

A virtual reveal of the Dow Salutes Veterans No. 3 Chevy will be released across Richard Childress Racing’s social media channels on Wednesday, July 1, at 10:00 AM ET.
