Low T Center Military Day Planned at Texas Motorplex
LOW T CENTER MILITARY DAY PLANNED AT TEXAS MOTORPLEX
Military members to receive free tickets to AAA Texas Fall Nationals
ENNIS, Texas (Aug. 27, 2013) – Texas Motorplex is proud to announce its first Low T Center Military Day, a chance to give a little back to the brave men and women who protect the country by offering them the experience of NHRA’s high-octane, high-speed drag racing for free.
On Sat., Sept. 21, active and reserve U.S. service members with valid military ID will receive a free admission to the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals. The special day has been made possible through the patriotic support of Mike and Mikala Sisk, co-founders of Low T Center, which diagnoses and treats men with low testosterone levels nationwide.
“Mickala and I feel there is no better combination that demonstrates testosterone than that of Low T Center Military Day and the NHRA,” Mr. Sisk said. “We feel honored to show our appreciation for those who put themselves in harm’s way to provide safety for our families and loved ones. Thank you for keeping America safe.”
Although a longtime goal, this is the first time the Motorplex has been able to offer free tickets to the military. With several military installations in the track’s region — including Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve, Fort Hood Army and Sheppard Air Force bases — Motorplex officials are delighted for the opportunity to express their gratitude for the efforts service members put forth each day in safeguarding the nation.
“We have been wanting to honor military personnel in a special way and we are thrilled that Low T Center is going to offer free tickets during the premier event of the Motorplex season,” Texas Motorplex President/GM Gabrielle Stevenson, said. “It’s a privilege to be able to help host this special Low T Center Military Day.”
The U.S. Armed Forces have long been linked with the all-American sport of drag racing.
Abandoned military runways were a boon to the growth of the sport in its early days, and the Goleta air base near Santa Barbara, Calif. is said to be the site of the first organized drag race in 1949.
NHRA founder Wally Parks was a military tank test-driver for General Motors and a U.S. Army serviceman serving South Pacific during World War II before devoting his career to drag racing.
And, of course, the U.S. Army is the current and longtime sponsor of driver Tony “The Sarge” Schumacher’s Top Fuel drag racing team. Schumacher is a five-time winner at the Motorplex.
The 28th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals will take place Sept. 19 – 22 and draw tens of thousands of racers and fans to the historic Ennis race track. The Fall Nationals will feature some of the biggest names in racing, including John Force, Fort Worth native and Top Fuel winner Spencer Massey, Top Fuel rookie Brittany Force and many more. The event is the second of six playoff events in the NHRA’s Countdown to 1 championship playoff system.
