3M to Award 25 NASCAR Trips to Military Vets
June 12, 2013—As part of the 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign, military veterans who work in auto body repair shops and the repair shop owners who employ them will have an opportunity to win one of 25 trips to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Texas in November.
Military veterans who win trips to the race will have access to several exclusive events, including a special recognition during pre-race ceremonies and a pre-race autograph session with Greg Biffle, Jack Roush and Chip Foose. They will also watch the race from the 3M VIP executive suite.
During the race, Biffle will drive the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion that features a special paint scheme created by car designer Foose honoring military veterans.
“Both NASCAR and the collision industry have always been strong supporters of America’s military members, and this is a natural venue to recognize some of the veterans and their employers,” said Dale Ross, U.S. marketing operations manager for 3M’s Automotive Aftermarket Division. “We want to thank them for their service in the military and recognize their contributions to the collision repair industry with this program.”
To qualify for the trip, a military veteran who works in a collision repair facility must be nominated by their shop owner online at 3mcollision.com/nominate. The nomination deadline is Aug. 31.
