Texas Super Racing Series Drivers And Fans Enlisted For Operation Interdependence 100

This Saturday, June 18th, at Thunder Hill Raceway in Kyle TX., the Texas Super Racing Series has enlisted with Operation Interdependence® to assist American military personnel stationed around the world. Operation Interdependence® is a civilian-to-military delivery system® that serves as a program for Americans to demonstrate their support for our deployed military. The Austin Operation Interdependence® shipping center opened for operation on March 19, 2005.

Between 15:30-15:45 hours (3:30 -- 3:45 PM) Saturday afternoon, all race preparation for the "Operation Interdependence® 100" will stop for 15 minutes while the Texas Super Racing Series drivers, crews and staff will be packing boxes of civilian rations (C-Rats®) for the troops. During intermission before the start of the "Operation Interdependence® 100", fans attending will be able to show their support by packing more C-Rats® during the "15 Minutes of Giving" event.

Everyone attending is asked to bring items to be sent to our troops. Some suggested items are beef jerky, books, camper style foods, candy, Chapstick, cookies, dental floss, disposable cameras, facial tissues, hot sauce packets from fast food restaurants, flashlights, gum, magazines, moist wipes, music CDs, small Nerf Toys, Odor Eaters for boots, pencils, pens, phone cards, playing cards, postage, powdered drink mixes that are non alcoholic, razors, sardines, stationary, snacks, tea bags, toiletries, toothbrushes, travel games, travel mugs, tuna snack kits or Vienna sausages. Please note that all food items must be manufactured sealed.

Everyone involved with this event is also encouraged to write a personal note of support to these soldiers to be enclosed with the C-Rats®. "The soldiers really enjoy hearing about what their supporters are involved in and racing is a particular favorite for so many of them," said Rebecca Forest with Operation Interdependence®. "Every month the Austin shipping center has a need for 750 notes from home."
