1 speedway(Springfield, MO)—May 23, 2013— As we head into Memorial Day weekend, Bass Pro Shops would like to again say thank you to all of the men and women in our armed forces and their families who serve our great nation. As a show of our support, Bass Pro Shops has partnered with the Patriot Partners to help bring over 7,000 troops and their families to the Coca-Cola® 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Patriot Partners program offers companies and individuals the opportunity to welcome home and thank the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces by sponsoring buses to transport troops from bases. Troops from Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, NC, Fort Jackson in Columbia, SC and Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC will be able to attend the 54th running of the Coca-Cola 600.

Charlotte Motor Speedway is providing 3,000 tickets to the military for distribution through the USO and with the help of programs such as Patriot Partners and corporate support from companies such as Bass Pro Shops, more than 7,000 troops and their families are expected to attend the race.

Bass Pro Shops strongly supports our military personnel through special events and activities at our store locations. We offer special military discounts to current and retired members of all branches of the armed forces from the 15th to 22nd each month in all our stores. We also sponsor the USO’s “Operation Care Package” that sends care packages to troops serving abroad. In addition, Bass Pro Shops supports AMVets, a veterans group that provides assistance to men and women who are returning home from the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.
