NASCAR is using their resources to help frontline medical workers during the coronavirus crisis.

NASCAR Research & Development has re-purposed its 3D printers to make face shields for medical professionals on the frontlines.

The International Motor Sports Association, which is owned by NASCAR, has retooled its operations to make 20,000 face shields a day for medical staff.

The masks are made at Technique, Inc. in Jackson, Michigan.

NASCAR Cup Series team, the Wood Brothers, and their driver Matt DiBenedetto have also donated hundreds of tablets to nursing home residents so they can talk with their families during this time of separation.
