A Mack Anthem featuring a custom-designed military-themed wrap recently debuted as part of the 2021 edition of NASCAR Salutes Together with Coca-Cola. The annual campaign recognizes men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and their families, as well as honors those who died while in the service.
This is the fourth consecutive year Mack has wrapped one of NASCAR’s 10 Anthem models in support of NASCAR Salutes, and the second consecutive year Mack and NASCAR fans had the opportunity to choose the final wrap design. The winning design, featuring the five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, received 46% of the more than 3,300 votes.
“It’s an honor for Mack to once again be a part of NASCAR’s recognition of military heroes and their families,” said John Walsh, Mack Trucks vice president of marketing. “This year’s custom design is made even more special by the fact that it was chosen by NASCAR and Mack fans through a social media vote.”
The 2021 edition of NASCAR Salutes Together with Coca-Cola began the first weekend in May at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, and continues through Memorial Day weekend at the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
As the “Official Hauler of NASCAR,” Mack Trucks provides a fleet of 10 custom-designed Mack Anthem 70-inch stand-up sleeper models. NASCAR’s Mack Anthem models travel thousands of miles across the U.S. throughout the 36-race, 10-month long season, delivering technology and equipment to race locations.
Each NASCAR Mack Anthem features a 505-horsepower Mack MP 8 engine and a Mack mDRIVE automated manual transmission.
