Team Fastrax™ to Perform at NASCAR Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard

The Crown Royal presents the Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, IN.  Defending race winner Kyle Busch along with Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, and all of the stars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, will battle it out for the checkered flag.   As part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will be performing their famous American Flag skydive with the largest American Flag flown by a skydiver, an amazing 8,000 sq. ft. patriotic display not found anywhere else.  Also included in the demonstration will be their 5,000 and two 1,100 sq. ft. American Flags, as well as a 1,100 sq. ft. Purple Heart flag to honor our Combat Wounded Veterans, with approval from the Order of the Purple Heart Association.  It’s sure to be an aerial demonstration you’ll not soon forget.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™, said, “We are honored to be performing at such a thrilling event.  The Crown Royal 400 is a very competitive race and we’re excited that this year Crown Royal has named the race the Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard.  Members of Team Fastrax™ have served the United States of America as part of the Armed Forces, many in combat, so we particularly enjoy performing at any event that honors our nation’s military.”
