NASCAR’s Josh Bilicki Honors Fallen Cops With Police Car Paint Job for Big Race
NASCAR Driver Josh bilicki turned his No.7 car into a replica of a police cruiser for Sunday’s Cup Series race – all to honor the more than 200 cops killed in the line of duty.
Bilicki will be deploying his new paint job at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on November 1 … and it looks pretty amazing.
It’s been painted over police lights, a basic black and white scene – and the iconic “Protect & Serve” slogan on the side.
There are also over 200 stars painted on the hood – to represent more than 200 officers who were said to have been killed in the line of duty in 2020.
Bilicki, 25 – along with his sponsor Insurance King – worked with The Wounded Blue organization, which helps officers who were injured or injured on the job … and wanted to do something special for Martinsville.
“We got the idea to make the car look like a police car because NASCAR started out with bootleggers overtaking the police,” said the president of Insurance King. Dan Block said
“However, when we partnered with The Wounded Blue, we ended up taking this paint scheme a step further and dedicating this design to every police officer who lost their lives in 2020.”
234 police officers died in the line of duty in 2020 – up from 147 in 2019, according to Officer Down Memorial Page. The rise is mainly due to COVID-19, which claimed the lives of 130 officers this year.
