Kansas Speedway Presents Tickets to Kansas National Guard
At a Capitol ceremony today, Kansas National Guard members and their families were presented with 2,500 tickets to opening weekend races at the Kansas Speedway by Speedway President Jeff Boerger and Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius. The donation was made possible by O'Reilly Auto Parts and the Kansas Lottery.
Accepting the donation was Major General Tod Bunting, the Kansas Adjutant General, and several members of the Kansas National Guard.
"I'm excited we're able to present these tickets to the Kansas National Guard," said Boerger. "The men and women of the military do so much for our country and this is an opportunity for us to support them and their families by inviting them to be part of a fun family event."
"The Kansas Speedway has been great for our state, creating jobs, attracting visitors and now helping to show support for the citizen soldiers of Kansas," said Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius. "These tickets are just a small token of the appreciation we have for the Guard's service to our state."
