Students and Snap-on Student Excellent Program members Carson Blackburn, Zachary Gamble, Logan Reder and Kevin Solt enjoyed the Team Penske VIP racing experience in Michigan as the winners of Snap-on’s Join the Race Promotion.
Their day at the track included exclusive tours of the garage areas; pit row; and meeting Team Penske driver Joey Logano. When the green flag dropped, the four winners and their guests watched the high-octane action from behind Logano’s pit box. heir VIP experience also included lunch and refreshments in the Acceleration Club in turn four, along with great seats in the club and grandstands.
“When my Snap-on rep, Kelly Smith, called me, he said he had some really good news,” said Carson Blackburn, 18, of Mexico, Missouri. “He asked me if I knew of the racing trip promotion. Told him I did, and he gave me the great news that I won! I was really surprised because I never win anything.”
“When I found out that Carson had won, I called him right away, he was so excited,” added Smith, education account manager, Snap-on Industrial. “He was anxious to get all the information on the trip and the race because he was jumping out of his skin about it! It was a good night for Carson.”
Blackburn traveled to Michigan for the race with his father, and he will attend the State Technical College of Missouri in the fall to train as a heavy equipment technician.
