Spire Motorsports and Premier Security Solutions have partnered with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) to honor fallen officers for National Police Week at the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway.

Carson Hocevar will showcase the NLEOMF logo on both his race car and firesuit for NASCAR‘s annual throwback weekend at the legendary 1.33-mile, egg-shaped South Carolina oval.

“To be a part of this with a longtime sponsor, supporting something that means so much to not only Dave Forystek (Premier Security CEO) but also myself and my family, I couldn‘t be more excited,” said Hocevar. “Being able to honor those who have fallen in service to the public is something I will never forget.”

The partnership honors National Police Week and the 282 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in 2023, and years prior, who were added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial this year. Those officers‘ names will be read aloud during the Candlelight Vigil at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on May 13th, one of the many events in recognition of National Police Week held each May.

“We are honored to partner with Spire Motorsports and Premier Security Solutions in honoring the fallen, telling the story of American law enforcement, and making it safer for those who serve,” said Bill Alexander, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. “This collaboration represents a powerful alliance, uniting our shared commitment to honoring the sacrifices of those who serve and protect. We appreciate Carson showing his support of the NLEOMF and wish him well on race day.”

Premier Security Solutions is a long-time supporter of Hocevar‘s career. The Flint, Mich.-headquartered organization has been prominently featured alongside Hocevar dating to his time racing short tracks in the pavement late model ranks. Premier Security will serve as the primary partner aboard Hocevar‘s No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for a total of 10 races in 2024.

“Having the opportunity to partner with the National Law Enforcement Officer‘s Memorial Fund and further the awareness of the fallen officers throughout the United States, through our involvement with Spire Motorsports‘ NASCAR Cup Series team and the Premier Security No. 77 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, driven by Carson Hocevar is so overwhelming,” said Dave Forystek, CEO and Founder of Premier Security Solutions. “Having participated in the events that unfold every May in our nation‘s capital to honor these men and women who have given their lives for their communities just seemed natural to me.  Law Enforcement is a vocation that is on its third generation in my family. I‘m proud to say that, collectively, we‘ve dedicated over 60 years to the citizens of Flint, Michigan.”

Hocevar has one previous NCS start at the “Track Too Tough To Tame”, finishing 17th in his second NCS Cup race of his career. In his time in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series (NCTS), the Michigan native has four Darlington starts and boasts three top-five finishes.

The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender is currently 22nd in the division‘s championship points. Over the course of the season‘s first 12 races, the rookie has notched one top-10 and three top-15 finishes. In his standout 2023 season for the NCTS, the 21-year-old finished third in the series‘ championship point standings achieving four wins, 11 top-fives, and 13 top-10‘s.

The goal of NASCAR‘s Throwback Weekend at Darlington Raceway is to be an annual reunion that welcomes all who have built the sport, honoring the legacy and heritage of NASCAR and the exciting future ahead.

The Goodyear 400 from Darlington Raceway will be televised live on FS1 Sunday, May 12, beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). The 13th of 36 races on the 2024 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
