Plowman to Honor Military Families at 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas

Posted on: September 16th, 2013 by Martin Plowman

Martin Plowman will be hosting twenty military family members at the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas this upcoming weekend as part of his partnership with Snowball Express. Thirteen children ages 7 through 17 and seven mothers will join Plowman in Austin, Texas on Sunday, September 22, 2013 for a day at the races – and to honor their late fathers and husbands, heroes who gave their lives in service since 9/11.

Snowball Express is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide hope and new memories for children and families of our fallen military heroes since 9/11. Plowman partnered with Snowball Express as their official racing driver in 2011 after travelling to Europe and the Middle East with the Indy 500 Centennial Tour. He saw the sacrifice our military members make every day, and talked to generic viagra tablets them about the struggles their families go through while they are abroad. “I was particularly touched by the stories of strength these men and women told us – not of their own, but of their families,” Plowman said.

He returned home determined to make a larger difference in the lives of military members when an opportunity fell in his lap.  A good friend of Plowman’s was on the advisory board for Snowball Express and presented the opportunity for Plowman to get involved. “I immediately jumped at the chance to serve these families,” he explained. “I cannot imagine the sacrifice and heartbreak the families of Snowball Express have gone through. By bringing them out to the track as VIPs, I can do my part to create new memories, along with fostering antibiotics for sale friendships by connecting these families to one another.”

While Plowman was racing in IndyCar in 2011 and in the American Le Mans Series in 2012, he was able to host Snowball Express families at every race within the United States. His move to the World Endurance Championship brought on more international races, so he knew he had to focus his efforts on the Austin race – his one North American race – to get the families to the track. Through online fundraising through his fans and supporters, along with support generic cialis cheap from the Circuit of the Americas staff and Marion’s Catering, he was able to raise funds to host seven local families for a full VIP day at the track.

The seven Snowball Express families will enjoy a true VIP fan experience, including tickets, catering, souvenirs, and even a garage tour done by Plowman himself. Plowman explained why it was worth the extra effort to him and his team: “I am only able to do what I love – race cars – because of the freedoms given to me by our military men and women. Their sacrifices cannot be repaid. But I can certainly pay it forward to their families by thanking them for giving the most important person in their life so that the United States can be free.”
