NASCAR Cup Series driver Kurt Busch will be giving away NASCAR tickets to active military members and veterans this season.
Busch will be distributing more than 100 tickets to all 36 NASCAR cup races, as well as the non-points Busch Clash and All-Star races, all to pay his respect to those who have served and those who are currently serving, reported NBC Sports.
This is the second year Busch has partnered with Veterans Ticket Foundation (Vet Tix), an organization which provides tickets for stress-reducing, family-strengthening events to veterans, military members, and their families, encouraging them to stay engaged with their local community and American life. Busch and Vet Tix are calling the collaboration KB100+.
Vet Tix has provided over 9 million free event tickets to a variety of sports events to more than 1.5 million military veterans. Last year they received more than 50,000 requests for their 3,800 NASCAR race tickets.
“I have always had a strong desire to pay respect to those who have served and continue to serve our country,” Busch said.
“My hope is that with help from others we can enhance the offering for more deserving Vet Tix members to attend races this season, hence KB100+.”
Time to pay up! Happy to announce another season of the @VetTix KB100 ticket program for veterans! And because of the demand last season, it’s now the KB100+ as we’re calling on all tracks, drivers and sponsors to help us add to my 100 tickets per event. No amount is too little! https://t.co/j0T2MdisOk— Kurt Busch (@KurtBusch) January 28, 2020
