Texas Super Racing Series Drivers And Fans Re-enlist For "Tribute To

America's Finest - Operation Interdependence® 75"


By: Pat Mayberry


This Sunday, July 2nd, the Texas Super Racing Series and their fans will

re-enlist with Operation Interdependence® to assist American military

service personnel stationed around the world. Operation Interdependence® is

a Civilian-to-military delivery system® that serves as a program for

Americans to demonstrate their support for our deployed military. The

Austin Operation

Interdependence® shipping center opened for operation on March 19, 2005 and

is shipping over 1,000 C-Rats® (Civilian Rations) every month to our brave

men and women on the front lines around the world.


Everyone attending is asked to bring items to be sent to our troops. Some

suggested items are beef jerky, books, camper style foods, candy, Chapstick,

cookies, dental floss, disposable cameras, facial tissues, hot sauce packets

from fast food restaurants, flashlights, gum, magazines, moist wipes, music

CDs, small Nerf Toys, Odor Eaters for boots, pencils, pens, phone cards,

playing cards, postage, powdered drink mixes that are non alcoholic, razors,

sardines, stationary, snacks, tea bags, toiletries, toothbrushes, travel

games, travel mugs, tuna snack kits or Vienna sausages. Please note that

all food items must be manufactured sealed.


Those attending are also encouraged to write a personal note of support to

these soldiers to be enclosed with the C-Rats®. "The soldiers really enjoy

hearing about what their supporters are involved in and racing is a

particular favorite for so many of them," said Nina Gayheart with Operation

Interdependence® Austin office.


Between 15:30-15:45 hours (3:30 - 3:45 PM) Sunday afternoon, all race

preparation for the "Tribute to America's Finest - Operation

Interdependence® 75" will stop for 15 minutes while the Texas Super Racing

Series drivers, crews and staff will be packing boxes of C-Rats® for the

troops. Then during intermission before the start of the "Tribute To

America's Finest - Operation Interdependence® 75", fans attending will be

able to show their support by packing more C-Rats® during the "15 Minutes of

Giving" event.
