On Sunday, May 17th, the NASCAR series returned to the track after a 10-week layoff during the coronavirus pandemic. The first event was called the “The Real Heroes 400”, and was dedicated to health care workers fighting the pandemic. The names of health care workers across the United States were substituted for the drivers’ name above the door on each of the 40 qualified cars. Timmy Hill had EMS Samantha Tushaj on the RoofClaim.com Toyota. She, along with other hero’s from across the country, gave Timmy Hill and the other drivers the command to start their engines. All of us at RoofClaim.com are proud to be a part of such a great program.
With empty grandstands, not a single tailgate, and everyone wearing face coverings, it was not the usual sight that symbolizes NASCAR. However, when the engines fired at Darlington Raceway, it turned out to be a regular race. Kevin Harvick wins his 50th career race. Following Harvick, Alex Bowman takes second and Kurt Busch takes third. Timmy Hill finished up 33rd.
With the announcement of our partnership extension with MBM Motorsports, we are very excited to get back to real racing and reaching more of the NASCAR community, both digitally and at the track. We look forward to watching the #66 RoofClaim.com car in the next event.
