Great Clips Returns as Title Sponsor of Nascar Fast Friday in Sonoma
SONOMA, Calif. (March 31, 2016) — Great Clips has continued its long-standing sponsorship of Sonoma Raceway with a three-year extension, officials announced today.
Great Clips, the world's largest salon brand, continues as the title sponsor of "Great Clips® Fast Friday" on Friday, June 24, as well as the Official Hair Salon of Sonoma Raceway for the fifth consecutive year. Great Clips Fast Friday will feature two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice sessions, which mark the only opportunities for drivers to fine tune their stock cars before qualifying on Saturday.
New for 2016, Great Clips will host a promotion called the "Vineyard to Victory Lane Tour." One fan and a guest will win the grand prize, which includes two airline tickets, a three-night hotel stay, two Toyota/Save Mart 350 race-day tickets and a private wine tasting event and dinner with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kasey Kahne on Saturday, June 25. The contest runs from April 1-29 at Greatclips.com/promotions (limit one web entry per person).
Great Clips will again set up mobile salons at the raceway during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Verizon IndyCar® Series event weekends. Stylists from local salons will give haircuts for a suggested donation of just $10, with proceeds benefiting Speedway Children's Charities (SCC), the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway. Last year, Great Clips provided more than 1,000 haircuts for race fans and raised nearly $12,000 for SCC.
With more than 3,900 salons throughout the United States and Canada, Great Clips salons employ nearly 35,000 stylists who receive ongoing training to learn advanced skills and the latest trends.
