UNDER THE HOOD

3M #16 NASCAR FEATURES CHIP FOOSE PAINT SCHEME NOV. 3
November 1, 2013

This Sunday, November 3rd, the Greg Biffle #16 Ford Fusion running at the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR race will feature a custom paint scheme designed by Chip Foose.  A long time sponsor of both Chip Foose and Greg Biffle, 3M asked Chip to develop the unique graphics which are intended to honor veterans recognized through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program.  The car’s hood design reflects the respect of the saluting soldier flanked by the stars and stripes, with the stripes down the side creating a fast, sleek look for the car.

The 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign is supporting the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in raising awareness for hiring America’s heroes and helping drive employment in the collision repair industry for these deserving veterans and their families.  3M Collision recognizes the need for qualified technicians in the collision repair industry and is helping returning veterans and their families that have chosen to pursue careers in the collision repair industry.  The 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign raised funds throughout the year to help offset the costs of tuition, books, tools and equipment for returning veterans and their families and has also has donated some $250,000 to benefit returning veterans and their families.  Through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program, nearly 60 grant winners, including military members and family members of veterans, were selected from applicants all across the United States.  Each recipient received a financial grant to purchase tools and equipment needed to start their career in collision repair.  

As part of the 3M Hire Our Heroes campaign, a number of the nation’s military veterans who work in auto body repair shops and their shop owners who nominated them are headed to the November NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Texas.  The winning military veterans will have an opportunity to experience the pre-race ceremonies from pit road.  Chip Foose will also be in attendance at the race in support of the team.

To watch the vehicle in action, be sure to tune in to ESPN at 3pm EST for the AAA Texas 500.
