"It was great to get out and visit with the Airmen at Travis Air Force Base," commented JJ Yeley. "We were able to hand out tickets for Sunday's event, and meet with the folks who continue to make sacrifices on a daily basis, so we can continue to do what we love every weekend."
Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Jeb Burton also commented, "I had a good time getting to meet with the Airmen yesterday at Travis Air Force Base. The team has done a great job with giving back to those who serve our country, and I'm glad to be part of it."
Next week, BK Racing continues the stride to saluting our military.
