The National Civil Rights Museum will be featured on the #11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Denny Hamlin today at Talladega Speedway.
AND: FedEx announced a $500,000 donation to the National Civil Rights Museum on Sunday, according to the museum’s Twitter account.
FedEx made the donation at NASCAR’s GEICO 500 race at Talladega Superspeedway “in support of the museum’s mission,” said the Memphis museum, which chronicles the history of the civil rights movement in America.
For today’s race, @FedEx has chosen to remove all of their branding and traditional colors, with this week’s theme being to listen and learn as they spotlight the @NCRMuseum, which they are featuring on the hood. pic.twitter.com/hfd5aGq2e9

I promised to listen and that’s what I’m doing. Today you will see my #11 car will not carry the traditional paint scheme that you usually see. @FedEx and myself instead want to give that voice to the @NCRMuseum. Exhibit photos courtesy of the NCRM. pic.twitter.com/KJ0sKumnUT
