In recognition of LENOX's "Extra Mile Hero" initiative, LENOX Industrial Tools and New Hampshire Motor Speedway have teamed up to announce the LENOX Speed Zone, a special seating section that offers a $39 ticket for the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday, June 28.

A section of seats in the Laconia Grandstand has been designated as the LENOX Speed Zone.  This section features a very limited number of $39 tickets for the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at the speedway.

"In conjunction with honoring the LENOX Extra Mile Heroes, we have the opportunity to also recognize the true heroes of our sport -the loyal race fans," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  "It is fitting that in these challenging economic times, the LENOX Speed Zone gives fans an incredible chance to be part of the largest sporting event in New England."

Last year, LENOX announced their LENOX Extra Mile Hero program asking their customers to submit stories of people that they considered heroes.  The program recognizes users and suppliers of industrial tools who go the extra mile for their community.  A judging panel considered more than 600 nominations before selecting the 10 finalists.  Each finalist has won $3,100 with a matching gift going to their charity of choice.  The finalist who receives the most votes will win a Grand Prize of $31,000 as well as an additional $31,000 for the charity of their choice. If Jeff Burton, driver of the No. 31 LENOX Industrial Tools RCR Chevrolet, wins the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday, June 28, the grand prize will be increased to $1 million to split equally with the winner and their charity. 

America can vote on which of the finalists they think will make the best LENOX Extra Mile Hero by going to www.lenoxhero.com to cast their vote. The finalist who receives the most votes will be the LENOX Extra Mile Hero.
