Here at E3 Spark Plugs, we have the utmost respect and love for our nation’s military servicemen and service women. And, of course, we love fast cars. So, we’re big fans of NASCAR’s Troops to the Track program (T2T). In partnership with the Armed Forces Foundation, this year-round recreational group therapy program honors America’s military service members, veterans and families at NASCAR races nationwide.
Since its inception six years ago, the program has treated thousands of wounded service members, veterans and families to customized VIP experiences at the races. We’re talking garage tours, driver meet-and-greets and recognition during the drivers’ meeting, plus loads of other special-access perks.
“NASCAR has a long tradition of supporting our nation’s military and we are honored by the presence of the men and women who serve our country and their families at our races,” said Brent Dewar, NASCAR Chief Operating Officer.
