At Saturday’s Xfinity Series race, his car, number 34, was dedicated to Drew Barr. The race car displayed Barr’s name written right above the window.
Barr lost his life April 24 while working as a Cayce police officer. After he responded to a domestic disturbance call, a suspect fired a gun, killing him.
Officers say the suspect took his own life after a seven-hour standoff.
Barr had also been a firefighter in Monetta since he was 15.
Barr was not married and did not have any kids, but he left behind his mother, father and older sister.
Many who knew Barr in Aiken County say he was married to his career of helping and serving others.
