Members of the Fast Glass Corvette Club, Prescott Vette Sette, Sonoran Desert Corvettes, and Tucson Corvette Club hosted an event at Phoenix International Raceway on Jan. 29 to raise money for PIR’s Salute to Military Families (SMF) Program – a partnership with Arizona military bases that honors America's military by sharing the NASCAR race day experience with service members and their families.

During the event, which included the clubs’ participation in parade laps and PIR pace car hot laps, and Gatorade Victory Lane and on the track photos, nearly $1700 was raised. In the past two years, the four Corvette Clubs have raised approximately $9,000 for the SMF.  In addition to supporting the SMF program at PIR through donations, the clubs have provided the vehicles for driver introductions for the past four race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at PIR. 

"Our club, Fast Glass Corvette Club, is honored to have the relationship we have with PIR,” said Sean Thompson, of the Fast Glass Corvette Club. “We enjoy putting together the driver intro lap cars for the Sprint Cup races and our club is very supportive of the military program at PIR.  Additionally, anytime we can enjoy a few hours at the track,  as a Corvette owner that’s a dream.

Originated in 2006 to exhibit appreciation for those serving the United States military, the Salute to Military Families program has seen overwhelming support from PIR's partners, to the tune of several thousand tickets that have been sponsored for military families.
