As NASCAR makes its way to Michigan International Speedway this weekend, they made sure to salute health care workers by parading past Henry Ford Allegiance Health.

Due to COVID-19  NASCAR's 2020 season has looked a bit different.

They were the first sport to get back to it, revamped their schedule and though the June races were cancelled, they are able to make their way to Michigan this weekend without fans for the first time.

According to MLive, NASCAR haulers took a detour through downtown Jackson on their way to the speedway in Brooklyn, parading and honking their horns as hospital workers lined up outside the hospital to cheer and wave.

Verizon also treated employees to a free boxed lunch from four different Jackson-area restaurants.

The parade meant a lot to the hospital workers who have been working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19 but also means a lot as Henry Ford Health System is the sponsor of this weekend's truck series race!

The Henry Ford Health System 200 kicks off the weekend of racing at 6 p.m. on Friday and the only way you can catch it is on Fox Sports 1 as fans are not allowed to attend in person.

As a NASCAR fan who has family and friends who work at Henry Ford Allegiance this made my day and while it will be weird to see the grandstands at MIS empty this weekend, I am excited nonetheless!

So let's all give a collective "BOOGITY BOOGITY BOOGITY" for the fact NASCAR is back in Michigan!
