PG&E is once again partnering with Infineon Raceway and the USO of Northern California to support the men and women of the Armed Forces by providing them with race day tickets through the 2011 “PG&E Tickets for Troops” program, part of Infineon Raceway’s “Sonoma Salutes Our Troops.”
For the second year in a row, PG&E has supported this effort to honor and celebrate our troops by offering race fans the opportunity to underwrite the purchase of tickets to major racing events for active duty military, veterans and reservists. Building on the success of last year’s program, this year’s “PG&E Tickets for Troops” program will provide tickets not only for Military Appreciation Day at the Indy® Grand Prix on August 28th, but will also make it possible for the men and women of the Armed Forces to attend the Toyota/Save Mart 350 on Sunday, June 26th during NASCAR weekend at Infineon Raceway.
The Sunday, June 26th NASCAR event will display a patriotic theme including an air show by the Patriots Jet Demonstration Team, followed by the singing of the National Anthem, military fly-bys and an Army cannon national salute to start off the race. This great partnership between PG&E, the USO and Infineon Raceway offers a tremendous opportunity for race fans to honor our troops and show appreciation in a meaningful way.
PG&E will be providing NASCAR tickets for other deserving community members as well – 200 tickets for Sunday’s race will be distributed to kids and families involved with PG&E’s Solar Schools Program in Sonoma County.
See you at the races, and don’t forget to show your support for the men and women serving our country! Visit Infineon Raceway’s website for information about purchasing NASCAR tickets for troops.
