Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 45 Toyota Camry TRD for 23XI Racing, is donating 500 tickets for military service members and veterans through Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) for the Toyota Owners 400 NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, April 3 at Richmond Raceway.
“NASCAR does such a great job showing support and appreciation for the men and women of our Armed Forces and I’m really honored to play a small part in trying to give back to our active duty and veteran servicemembers,” said Kurt Busch. “Through the partnership with Vet Tix, and with support from other drivers and tracks, we have provided a great experience for so many service members and first responders and I’m glad we can continue to give back. This is a great fit with Richmond to also be able to provide military members with a great race day experience through the Military Hospitality area. Thanks to Richmond Raceway for working with me on this idea and to Vet Tix for the work they do for veterans.”
Military and veterans will be able to redeem up to four free tickets to the Toyota Owners 400 on www.vettix.org courtesy of Kurt Busch. Over numerous seasons, Busch has donated tickets to NASCAR races in partnership with Vet Tix to share appreciation for the service of our dedicated active duty military and veterans.
