Honoring Those Who Fought for Our Freedom

  Mobil1

DATES are november 7th – november 9th, 2019

In 2008, we began a tradition of honoring our veterans with a new event, Vets ‘n Vettes. Thursday kicks off with a full day at the NCM Motorsports Park. Invites will be going out to all our local Veterans in hopes they come to the MSP and catch a ride in a Corvette with another fellow Veteran. Complimentary lunch served to all Presented by Don Franklin Chevrolet, Buick & GMC of Somerset, KY! With road tours, and participation in the Bowling Green Veterans’ Day Parade with lunch afterwards at the local VFW, the event offers veterans, servicemen and women and those who want to support them, a comfortable place to meet and share stories and experiences.
