In honor of the victims of the recent shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., NASCAR Xfinity and Sprint Cup series cars will cary #OrlandoUnited decals on their race cars this weekend at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. The Xfinity Series is scheduled to race Friday night at Daytona in the Firecracker 250, while the Sprint Cup Series closes out the Daytona race weekend with Saturday night’s running of the Coke Zero 400.

On June 12, Omar Mateen’s shooting rampage at Pulse resulted in 49 deaths and left 59 other individuals injured. It was the worst mass shooting in recent US history.

The decals will be located on the A-Post of all cars in both races. Forty cars are expected to run each race.
