The Air Force-sponsored No. 43 racecar enters a straightaway at Bristol Motor Speedway, Bristol, Tennessee during the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race NASCAR Cup Series. Driver, Erik Jones addressed fans, 14 newly enlisted Airmen, and one U.S. Space Force Guardian Sept. 18, 2021 outside an Air Force exhibit called "The Hangar" earlier in the day. Jones thanked the newly sworn in enlistees and interacted during a question and answer session. He said that since he is a race car driver, that if he were to serve in the Air Force, he would be interested in being a fighter pilot and that his favorite Air Force experience is learning about the Tuskegee Airmen. He finished the race in the top 10.
