3M ‘Car Lovers Dream Trip’ Gives Winners Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Weekend

The weekend in Charlotte included a surprise visit by Jeff Gordon and tours of Hendrick Motorsports, Ray Evernham's shop and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

3M-trip-1Fifteen body shop owners and distributors who participated in the 3M Summer Savings Promotion recently got to visit NASCAR country in Charlotte, N.C.

The winners, who purchased featured 3M collision repair products and entered their redemptions online, were selected randomly to go on the “Car Lovers Dream Trip.”

The Charlotte trip started with a surprise visit from four-time NASCAR Champion Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 3M Chevrolet. Gordon talked with and took photos with the guests. Then, it was off to Ray Evernham Enterprises for a tour of the car collection and museum by Ray Evernham (another surprise guest).

Day two started with a competitive session of go-kart racing at Victory Lane Karting Center, followed by a visit to Charlotte Motor Speedway. Then, it was off to nearby Hendrick Motorsports, where Rick Hendrick opened up his private museum for an invitation-only look at his private car collection. That was followed by an exclusive tour of the Hendrick Motorsports campus, with a behind-the-scenes look at the chassis, fabrication, CNC and engine shops, along with an exclusive tour of the 48/88 and 24/5 shops. On day three was a visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame in downtown Charlotte.

They were treated to a tour of the Marconi Automotive Museum and visited Auto Club Speedway to drive racecars in the NASCAR Racing Experience. West Coast winners also had dinner with award-winning painter and fabricator Rich Evans of Huntington Beach Bodyworks.
