Drag Races and the Army
On Monday March 27, the Army brought a retired drag racing car to Foothill High School. The car used to be driven by The Sarge every year at The Las Vegas Motor Speedway. But the racing car has been retired for a long time now.
The diesel truck and race car were accompanied by Michael Flores and Benjamin Hewitt who are usually located at the Green Valley Recruiting Station. The truck will be going to many schools surrounding the recruiting station to inform more students.
“We are trying to show people that Army is not all intense.” Flores said “We're here because of the drag races this weekend, and were trying to get more students to come to the drag races.”
Hewitt was informing the students about the Army and handing out Army lanyards. The students could also register for information about the Army at their school.
