When 3M says they will take you places, they aren’t kidding!  Recently, 15 body shop owners and distributors who participated in the 3M Summer Savings Promotion visited NASCAR country in Charlotte, NC, for a once in a lifetime experiences they will never forget!

The winners, who purchased featured 3M collision repair products and entered their redemptions online, were selected randomly to go on the “Car Lovers Dream Trip” this past weekend.

The Charlotte trip started with a surprise visit from four-time NASCAR Champion, Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 3M Chevrolet. Gordon talked with and took photos with the guests.  Then it was off to Ray Evernham Enterprises for a tour of the car collection and museum by (another surprise) Ray Evernham himself!  Day two started with a competitive session of go-kart racing at Victory Lane Karting Center, followed by a visit to Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Then it was off to nearby Hendrick Motorsports, where Rick Hendrick opened up his private museum for an invitation only look at his private car collection.  That was followed by an exclusive tour of the Hendrick Motorsports campus, with a behind- the-scenes look at the chassis, fabrication, CNC and engine shops, along with an exclusive tour of the 48/88 and 24/5 shops. On day three, a visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame in downtown Charlotte.

More lucky customers experienced a West Coast “Car Lovers Dream Trip” this weekend in Los Angeles.  Winners of the West Coast trip met legendary car designer, Chip Foose, and took a tour of his shop.  They were treated to a tour of the Marconi Automotive Museum, and visited Auto Club Speedway to drive racecars with the NASCAR Racing Experience.  West Coast winners also had dinner from award winning painter and fabricator Rich Evans of Huntington Beach Bodyworks.

For 3M customers who want to be one of the lucky ones to go on the next VIP trip to Daytona, go to www.3Mcollision.com to find out how. But hurry, the Four for Fall promotion ends October 31, 2015.
