300,000-mile, $300,000 club
NHRA funny car driver Jack Beckman, along with top fuel driver Cory McClenethan and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Reed Sorenson, will be part of a promotion by Valvoline this weekend to donate $300,000 to schools and let people know about the company's 300,000-mile guarantee.
Valvoline is putting their money where its mouth, or in this case oil, is.
If Beckman, a driver from North Hills, McClenethan and Sorenson qualify for their respective races this weekend, Valvoline will commit $300,000 toward educational materials.
To register your car with the Valvoline challenge, go to www.valvoline.com.
