Noah Gragson, the driver of the No. 10 Ford Mustang Dark Horse, comes into the NASCAR Cup Series’ longest race riding a wave of front-running consistency. Gragson has scored seven straight top-20s coming into Charlotte and he has finished among the top-15 in his last four races, a run that began with a career-best third-place drive April 21 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

About United States Marine Corps Sergeant Jasper P. Sloan

Born June 30, 1922, Sloan was killed in action against enemy forces during the Battle of Iwo Jima on Feb. 26, 1945. With his platoon held up by a devastating rain of hostile sniper and machine-gun fire, Sloan advanced his squad 75 yards to a strategic position on higher ground where he initiated a daring attack against strongly fortified Japanese positions despite a lack of flanking support. Repeatedly exposing himself to enemy fire as he pointed out new targets and directed his men, Sloan waged battle for more than two hours, enabling the remainder of his besieged platoon to move forward. Later that same day, Sloan twice braved heavy machine-gun fire to go to the aid of a seriously wounded comrade and, while ministering to him on the second occasion, was mortally struck down. Sloan’s dauntless courage, cool decision and self-sacrificing devotion to duty in the face of tremendous odds were in keeping with the highest traditions of military service.
