The Indianapolis 500 is set for tomorrow afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As you should all know, the race takes place on Memorial Day weekend, which means there will be plenty of moments where race goers and people across the nation will be reaching out to honor our past and present troops. One way that the troops will be honored during the great race is on the track with special Goodyear tires.
ESPN business correspondent and bona fide stat nerd Darren Rovell shared an image on Saturday afternoon that showed off the custom tires that will be used during the race to show respect to the troops.
One one side, the tires will feature the typical Goodyear branding, while the other half of the tire carries the message “SUPPORT OUR TROPPS.”
It is a great gestures.
Here is an image of the custom tires for tomorrow’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway:
