Harrisburg, NC (May 23, 2018) — Gray Gaulding and BK Racing will be racing in remembrance of Cpl. Christopher Ebert of the USMC. Cpl. Ebert was always someone everyone looked up to. He was the type of person that could be friends with anyone and always found a way to make people smile. He was very loving and very selfless. He always put other people before himself. His patriotism and love for his family and country went unmatched. He never knew the words, “I can’t,” or, “I’m tired,” or, “I quit.” During his service in the military, Cpl. Ebert received the Purple Heart, Good Conduct Medal, Overseas Deployment Medal, Combat Action Medal, and the Global War on Terrorism Expedition Medal.

From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding… “I’m super excited about the 600, it’s one of my favorite races of the year! I love Charlotte it’s a great race track for me and I’m looking forward to Sunday’s race. There’s no feeling like looking across pit road and seeing all our United States military right there with the drivers and crews pre race, our sport does a tremendous job on showing our appreciation for our armed forces on Memorial Day. Last year was my first 600 so this season I feel I know how the race track changes as the night goes on so hopefully we can stay on top of that all night an get a solid finish for our team.”
Race information… Tune in to the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Sunday, May 27 at 6:00 p.m. ET. Watch and listen live on FOX, Sirius XM channel 90, and the Performance Racing Network.
