While deployed in Iraq, Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds, a diehard NASCAR fan,
dreamed of working in the sport after completing his service. In 2005, those
dreams took a back seat when Deeds placed himself in harm’s way to save the
lives of his fellow Marines. This summer Deeds will travel to one of the
country’s most historic tracks, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), not as a fan
or employee, but as the race namesake.
Thursday in his hometown of
Erlanger, Ky., Deeds was recognized as the winner of Crown Royal’s “Your Hero’s
Name Here” program, which awards one deserving individual naming rights to the
July 28th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at IMS. Surrounded by
friends, family and Marines, Deeds cemented his place in the NASCAR record books
by laying the final brick, engraved with the official race logo, in a ceremonial
“Yard of Bricks” at Flagship Park in Erlanger.
While deployed in Iraq,
Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a
vehicle checkpoint. Upon seeing fellow Marines approaching, he exposed himself
to the device, risking his own life to save others. He was severely injured and
underwent more than 30 surgeries and procedures following the blast. Three years
later, while still recovering, Deeds’ heroic instincts took charge once again
when he saved the lives of three individuals caught in a rip tide off the coast
of North Carolina.
