CAR CARE AUTO FAIR TO SHOWCASE CLASSIC CARS,
CELEBRATE AUTO ENTHUSIASTS AT MIS IN AUGUST
Michigan International Speedway
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
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.
