Racers are Gearing up to Host Troops in Houston

Baytown, TX. - 'Tickets for Troops', a free ticket program aimed at showing appreciation and support to local military members is gearing up for a day of racing at Houston Raceway Park. Four lady drag racers are combining resources to host the troops and their families.

This season Tina Stull is joined by fellow racers Kate and Diana Harker, both accomplished Alcohol Dragster Drivers as well as Peggy Llewellyn representing Pro Stock Motorcycle at it's best.

"Having other racers get involved has been fantastic. This is all about the Troops, and now with a team of drivers we can broaden the experience for them at the track." Comments Diana

The program is designed to provide a day at the races from the racers perspective, by being invited into the pits and getting to talk to racers one on one, many troops will for the first time discover a love for racing.

"This is not about signing autographs and a two-second hello, we really want troops to hang out with us. And see what it takes to go racing." says Stull

From the outside much of the day looks boring but as racers know that is all part of the timing that happens at a race. Much of the time the troops are in the stands watching NHRA's finest sportsman battle it out for points. But during the long days there is always times to take a break. It's during these times these racers can be seen talking with their guests, and sharing a typical day racing.

Houston Raceway Park has provided 5,000 tickets to be distributed to US Military members for Saturday and Sunday of the event. Ticket for Troops mission is to give the US Military members and their families a day at the race track that is adrenaline backed, fun, enjoyable and informative.

Team Troops will host a hospitality tent in Tina Stull Racing pit with plenty of give-a-ways and a place to meet the drivers, their teams and to get up close and personal with the ladies race machines

US Military are welcome to request tickets through www.tinastullracing.com for the Houston Raceway Park Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event across May 15-17.
