As part of the event, the 932nd Airlift Wing Maintenance Group commander, Col. Sharon Johnson, was recognized on stage with the Indy drivers at the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 race, held on a hot Saturday evening at Gateway Motorsports Park, Madison, Illinois. Johnson was an honored VIP to help kick off the IndyCar race which was won by Will Power. He won the 248-lap race around the 1.25-mile Gateway Motorsports Park oval paved track in his #12 Chevrolet by 1.3117 seconds over second place finisher Alexander Rossi. The 932nd Airlift Wing helped recruiting awareness and was represented by maintenance, medical, public affairs staff, retirees and operations personnel. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col.
