Additionally, Windstream, a phone, broadband and digital TV provider, announced it is partnering with legendary NASCAR driver Bobby Allison for two Green Truck Tour events leading up to Pole Night.
On May 20, a Tuesday, Allison will appear at the Chik-Fil-A in Matthews from 6:30 to 8 a.m. and on May 21 at Concord Mills from 2 to 4 p.m. for a special autograph session.
Consumers and race fans are encouraged to stop by either of these free events to meet one of NASCAR’s greatest drivers and to pick up a free family four-pack of tickets for Pole Night. Limit one four-pack of tickets per person while supplies last.
