Anyone planning to attend the NHRA’s Oct. 17-20 AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals near Dallas has a chance through May 31 to treat a military service member or first responder, as well.

The Texas Motorplex, at Ennis, is pairing with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to offer military members and first responders free tickets to the annual drag-racing event.

Current Top Fuel champion Steve Torrence, a Kilgore, Texas, native and longtime Chris Kyle Frog Foundation supporter, announced the “Buy a Ticket, Give a Ticket to a Military or First Responder” campaign Wednesday.

“This is an awesome promotion by the Texas Motorplex, and I am proud to have [family business] Capco Contractors involved, as well. Everyone needs to show their appreciation to our military and first responders whenever they can. This is just one small way for me to say, ‘Thank you’ to so many people who have made and continue to make sacrifices for our country and Texas,” Torrence said during the Horsepower Shootout event with world champion roper Tuf Cooper.

The offer extends through the Memorial Day weekend. Fans who buy tickets to the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals through May 31 will receive 20% off their orders, and for every ticket purchased the Texas Motorplex will donate a ticket good for Saturday admission to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. The foundation then will give the tickets to a military or first responder couple through their Date Night Out program. Those guests also will be invited to a VIP meet-and-greet with Torrence during the Saturday qualifying session in October.

Fans can purchase tickets using the discount code “FROG” by calling 1-800-MOTORPLEX or ordering at www.texasmotorplex.com.

Andy Carter, Texas Motorplex general manager, said, “The Motorplex has a long tradition of supporting our military and first responders. We thought this would be an appropriate time to reward our fans with a discounted ticket and let them reward a military or first responder with their order. Everyone wins with this ‘Buy a Ticket, Give a Ticket’ promotion.”
