3M Provides NEXTEL Cup Tickets to Military Personnel and FamiliesShare
3M, title sponsor of the upcoming NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series 3M Performance 400 at Michigan International Speedway, and the USO are helping Michigan's military families enjoy the race weekend. 3M Performance 400 race tickets will be distributed for free to military personnel and their families at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan, on Saturday, August 11 at 4 p.m. during a Mobile USO base visit. During the event military personnel and their families may tour the Mobile USO and use the vehicle's many amenities. "The USO brings a home away from home to our troops every day, and this was a way for 3M Car Care to give back and say thank you," said Greg Klausen, business manager, 3M Car Care. "The 3M Performance 400 race tickets are a gesture of our appreciation for the outstanding job that the men and women of the United States armed forces do each day." For more than 66 years, the USO has served our troops in traditional USO centers as well as on the road, providing morale boosting programs and services to troops and their families. In 2006, the USO took these programs and services to a higher level, with three new Mobile USOs. The Mobile USO program is designed to bring a "home away from home" directly to service members stationed in remote and isolated areas throughout the United States. The Mobile USO is a four-wheel drive vehicle equipped with the comforts of a "brick and mortar" USO center. It features lounge areas and internal and external entertainment capabilities, gaming consoles, computer work stations with Internet connectivity and cafes. Along with the race, 3M Car Care is also sponsoring the 3M Car Care Auto Fair located in the AAA Fan Plaza at Michigan International Speedway. The 3M Car Care Auto Fair features classic and custom cars from around the United States and Canada, NASCAR driver and celebrity appearances, automotive experts providing car care tips as well as musical entertainment. The event runs from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19. For more information on the 3M Performance 400 or 3M Car Care Auto Fair, please visit www.3Mracingmedia.com.
