Honoring a fallen Marine isn't easy, but can happen in the most unique ways.Including a flag, signed by some of today's most popular NASCAR drivers and with it a hand written, heartfelt note.
The same drivers who signed the flag will have Aaron's picture on their car during Saturday's race in Sparta, Kentucky."To actually see it, it'll mean the world to me," said Joe. "Aaron was a very special person and he would have never thought that anybody would do anything for him like this."
"I keep thinking I'll get that phone call. Dad, I'll be coming in on a certain date."
While that phone call will never come, memories of Aaron will last forever, and Joe takes comfort knowing others are honoring his son on the track and through the flag.
"There's not another one like it, like Aaron. There's not another one like him and there won't be another one like him."
The drivers who signed the flag, and will have Aaron Torian's picture on their cars, are Kevin Harvick, Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart, and Kurt Busch.
The race will be Saturday, June 28th during the Sprint Cup Quaker State 400 in Sparta, Kentucky.
