In 2014 DAV sponsored its inaugural NASCAR event, the DAV 200-Honoring America’s Veterans, on Veteran’s Day weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.
The race was aired in 1,395,000 households with an estimated 1,875,000 viewers. More than 4-million listeners tuned in to the race, which was broadcast over 195 radio stations.
NASCAR fans were treated to an exciting finish of DAV’s first race as Brad Keselowski took the checkered flag during a last lap pass.
DAV will forever be etched in NASCAR’s record books as driver Chase Elliott made history during the DAV 200-Honoring America’s Veterans by becoming the first rookie and youngest driver to clinch the series championship at the conclusion of the race.
