Military Veterans and Body Shop Owners Eligible to Win Trip to NASCAR Sprint Cup Race in Texas

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 November NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Texas.

At this race, Greg Biffle will drive the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion featuring a special paint scheme created by legendary car designer Chip Foose that honors our veterans.

The winning military veterans will be included in several exclusive events including special recognition during pre-race ceremonies and a pre-race autograph session with Greg Biffle, Jack Roush and Chip Foose.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience will continue with a full NASCAR Sprint Cup Garage Tour and tickets to view the race from the comfort of the 3M all-inclusive VIP executive suite.

To qualify, a military veteran who works in a collision repair facility must be nominated by their shop owner at 3mcollision.com/nominate. Entries will be accepted through Aug. 31, 2013.

“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 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.”

The ultimate goal of the 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign is to support the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in raising awareness for hiring America’s heroes and help drive employment in the collision repair industry for these deserving veterans and their families.

In addition, 3M is a national board member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes program.
