The Medal of Honor recipients, all from the Vietnam War, are:

· Don Jenkins, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army

· Melvin Morris, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army

· Gary Littrell, Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army

· Robert Patterson, Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army

This is the sixth consecutive year that the Speedway has honored Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. The program actually started back in the 1970s by Bill France Sr.

"We’re honored to host and salute these four Medal of Honor recipients during the Coke Zero 400 Weekend," Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. "These four individuals have been recognized with our nation’s highest military honor for their heroic actions in combat and we look forward to honoring them during our Independence Day holiday weekend."

All four Medal of Honor recipients will be recognized during a special luncheon on Friday at the Bill France Room, will attend driver’s meetings and participate in pre-race ceremonies for both the Subway Firecracker 250 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Friday night, July 4 and the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday night, July 5. During Saturday’s 56th annual Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola, a special salute will take place for the four Medal of Honor recipients during pre-race ceremonies.

In addition, the four Medal of Honor recipients will take part in an autograph session with race fans in the Sprint FANZONE on Saturday prior to the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola.

The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government. It’s bestowed on a member of the United States armed forces who distinguishes himself or herself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States.
