6. TBR Honors Troops with Special American Flag
Starting this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Tommy Baldwin Racing will have a special American flag that will be flown on top of the No. 36 TBR hauler. The flag was recently presented to the team by Corporal Kevin Stelpflug, a young Marine upon his return from deployment in Afghanistan. The flag was flown over the 1st CEB Headquarters in the Helmand Providence and represents all of our military troops overseas protecting everyone here in the United States.
7. Sorenson’s Says …
“I am glad to have the Beef Jerky Outlet of the Carolinas come on board with us for this weekend’s race. It’s a big weekend for all of us, being home in Charlotte, and Memorial Day weekend. It’s a great time for fans to take some time and give back to our military that have served this country, and continue to make sacrifices for all of us. I encourage everyone to take some time out of their day, and sign a “Thank You” letter to send overseas to our troops, through our “Salute the Troops” campaign. It’s quick, fun, and an easy way to let all of our troops know we are still thinking about them.”
