In recognition of its EXTRA MILE HEROES Contest, LENOX Industrial Tools is teaming up with New Hampshire Governor John Lynch and the State to honor the everyday heroes of New Hampshire.

LENOX Industrial Tools and Gov. Lynch have invited members of the state police, local police and fire departments, and the National Guard, along with up to four members of their respective families, to attend the largest sporting event in New England, the LENOX Industrial Tools 301, on Sunday, June 28 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  A limited number of grandstand tickets, made available from a section of seating speedway officials earmarked for a charitable partnership, are being offered on a first-come basis to their respective departments for free.  The donation was made as an extension of the LENOX EXTRA MILE HEROES program which began with last year's LENOX Industrial Tools 301, adding an extra lap to recognize those who go the EXTRA MILE in their community.

"Our police, our firefighters and our National Guard soldiers sacrifice so we can be safe and they ask for little in return. I want to thank New Hampshire Motor Speedway and LENOX Industrial Tools for their generosity and their commitment to the men and women who work hard every day for our safety," Gov. Lynch said.

"New Hampshire Motor Speedway and the Sprint Cup races are very important to New Hampshire's economy and its people, and this is a great way to show our appreciation to the dedicated men and women of law enforcement, the fire service, the National Guard and their families."

"It's great to partner with LENOX to step up and recognize people who go the extra mile everyday to protect and serve", said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway.  "We appreciate the cooperation of Gov. Lynch and the State in working to make this a reality."
