Mack celebrates military heroes with an all-American “NASCAR Salutes” wrapped semi


A Mack Anthem model debuted with a custom-designed military-themed wrap as part of the 2021 edition of “NASCAR Salutes Together with Coca-Cola.”

The custom truck wrap is a salute to military heroes and their families across the country and honors those who have died in the line of service. The design was chosen by Mack fans through a social media contest.

“It’s an honor for Mack to once again be a part of NASCAR’s recognition of military heroes and their families,” said John Walsh, vice president of marketing for Mack Trucks. “This year’s custom design is made even more special by the fact that it was chosen by NASCAR and Mack fans through a social media vote.”

A video reveal of the 2021 wrapped truck design was posted on Mack Trucks’ social media channels and can be viewed below.

The winning design features the five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and proudly displays stars and stripes across the semi.

Mack has wrapped one of NASCAR’s 10 Anthem models in support of NASCAR Salutes for the past four years.

“NASCAR Salutes unites the industry to honor those who serve our country, along with their families and communities,” said Michelle Byron, vice president of partnership marketing at NASCAR. “NASCAR and Mack Trucks share a mutual appreciation for the U.S. Armed Forces, and the custom-designed Mack Anthem is a great rolling tribute everywhere NASCAR goes.”

NASCAR Salutes Together with Coca-Cola began at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas with the Buschy McBusch Race 400 on May 2 and concludes with the 600 Miles of Remembrance during the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina on Memorial Day weekend.
