CHARLOTTE, N.C.—The USO teamed up with NASCAR at the Coca-Cola 600 to tease something big. 

“That something big is [our goal] to break the Guinness World Record for the number of signatures on a flag,” said John Falkenbury, President of USO of North Carolina.

The USO of North Carolina has a long tradition of working with Charlotte Motor Speedway and SMI Sports to bring troops out to the track for the Memorial Day Weekend race, which is sponsored by USO Presidents Circle Partner Coca-Cola. This year the audience got the added opportunity to pledge their support in the form of a signature on the USO’s Every Moment Counts Flag.

“This is a time that brings America together—all  walks of life, all colors, all creeds, to do one thing: salute America,” Falkenbury said.
