INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Starting last year, the Brickyard 400 has been named after a hero.
This year, the race is named after Samuel Deeds.
Deeds is a marine who earned a purple heart for protecting his men from an "improvised explosive device" in Iraq. Samuel Deeds is also an avid NASCAR fan.
Deeds joined us live from Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Daybreak Sunday to talk about the honor. Watch the interview by clicking play in the viewer above.
