NASCAR NEXTEL CUP SERIES

MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Sunday, August 20, 2006 on TNT

3M CAR CARE AUTO FAIR TO SHOWCASE CLASSIC CARS,
CELEBRATE AUTO ENTHUSIASTS AT MIS IN AUGUST

Source: Michigan International Speedway

BROOKLYN, MI. Along with its host of aftermarket automotive products, 3M will bring more innovation to the race track with the 3M Car Care Auto Fair at Michigan International Speedway during the August 18-20 GFS Marketplace 400 event weekend.

The 3M Car Care Auto Fair is free to race fans and will be open Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the north end of the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza behind MIS’s main grandstand.

The 3M Car Care Auto Fair will feature a variety of automobiles from private collections, exhibitors and automobile clubs from across the United States and Canada. Vehicles dating back to the 1920s, including vintage Chevrolets, Shelby Cobras, and Corvettes, will make up a display of over 100 cars.

Race fans will have the chance to mingle with auto care professionals and other car enthusiasts to learn and share car care tips, and plenty of 3M car care auto products will be featured. The extensive and informative display will be the first of its kind held at the superspeedway located in the backyard of the automobile capital of the world.

“We’re hosting the 3M Car Care Auto Fair to celebrate all the car enthusiasts who rebuild, restore and repair beautiful classic cars,” said Greg Klaussen, marketing manager of the 3M Automotive Aftermarkets Division. “These folks truly are artists. We’re proud that they choose 3M car care products to sand, patch, paint, protect and improve performance in their prized automobiles. We think it will be exciting for race fans to see these amazing collector cars up close and learn from the experts how they can improve their own vehicles from the classic car enthusiasts.”

“We are very excited to have 3M return to Michigan International Speedway after their successful sponsorship of our June NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race,” said MIS Director of Marketing Keith Karbo. “We couldn’t be happier to have them here for what promises to be a fun show. Anyone who is a fan of the automobile will enjoy this great event.”

The 3M Car Care Auto Fair will feature master of ceremonies Courtney Hansen, host of “PowerBlock” on Spike TV. A pit kid who grew up in Ornon, Minnesota, Hansen’s automotive knowledge is plentiful as her “PowerBlock” role features discussion of high performance cars, industry news, and retrospective on classic vehicles.

Longtime NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series team owner Jack Roush will also appear along with many other vehicle exhibitors on stage throughout the weekend to provide insight into what makes their vehicles special.

Guests who wish to purchase fan hospitality packages – and secure the best remaining seats for MIS’s premier events – may call 1-800-354-1010.
