Regan Smith’s car in the Brickyard 400 will honor Aurora shooting victims
Sprint Cup Series driver Regan Smith will pay tribute to the victims of last week’s senseless tragedy in Aurora, Colo., by driving a custom version of his No. 78 car in Sunday’s Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Among the design features on the black Chevy’s exterior are a blue ribbon on the hood, “Aurora, CO” and the names of the 12 victims on the rear quarterpanels, and the message “For Those Lost, Those Injured and Countless Acts of Bravery 7/20/12” on the back. Smith’s team, Furniture Row Racing, is based in Denver.
Last Friday, the day of the shooting, we saw another respectful tribute to the victims when the Denver Nuggets’ summer league team wore black headbands for their contest against the Trail Blazers’ squad.
