SPECIAL PAINT SCHEME FOR GREG BIFFLE'S #16 NASCAR AT BRISTOL NIGHT RACE
August 21, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn., (August 13, 2014– At the NASCAR Sprint Cup night race at Bristol, NASCAR star Greg Biffle will be driving a No. 16 3M Ford Fusion with a strong force behind it – the power of the 3M Hire Our Heroes program.

Biffle’s No. 16 3M Hire Our Heroes Ford Fusion will feature a paint scheme created by legendary car designer Chip Foose to honor the veterans recognized through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program in 2014.  To date, some 55 military members and their families have received tool grants and scholarships through the program, totaling some $250,000.  It is the second year that the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division has led the 3M Hire Our Heroes program and run a special paint scheme with Chip Foose.

Biffle has one pole, six top-five finishes and has led 438 laps at the Bristol bullring.  Currently, Biffle is in 12th in the Chase for the Sprint Cup after Watkins Glen.

For the Bristol race, Biffle’s hood design reflects the transition of a soldier in camouflage to a collision industry professional.  The camouflage is peeling away to showcase the stars and stripes underneath.  On the hood, a saluting soldier is flanked by two auto body repairers – a painter and a welder.

"It’s an honor to drive a car that recognizes the many contributions of our country’s military members while they were on active duty, and also support a program that enables them to learn new skills that translate to careers in the collision industry now that they are back home,” said Biffle.  "And, it’s incredible to race a car with a paint scheme designed by Chip Foose – one of my automotive heroes.”

Foose said the program is tremendous in building awareness of opportunities in the collision industry, and recognizing those who have served.

"For the August Bristol race, I was lucky to be able to design the 3M Hire Our Heroes Ford Fusion,” said Foose.  "The design was inspired by the fact that every soldier wears the camouflage uniform, but underneath that uniform is the heart of an American.  The car recognizes that – and as the camo is being torn off, it exposes the red, white and blue.  We’re proud of the 3M Hire Our Heroes tool grant recipients and look forward to having them become members of the collision repair industry.”
