Showcasing his No. 16 3M Ford Fusion car and the cowboy boot-shaped trophy he won at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Samsung Mobile 500 on April 14 in Fort Worth, Texas, Greg encouraged youngsters to put good oral health on the fast track by brushing, flossing, visiting the dentist and making healthy food choices.

As part of the GKAS yearlong 10th anniversary celebration, Greg will also be on hand when GKAS, Henry Schein Inc., the ADA Foundation and 3M ESPE team up at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway April 27-28 for a screening and education program. Underserved children will receive free dental evaluations, fluoride treatments and, if needed, dental sealants. Greg’s No. 16 3M car will sport a special Give Kids A Smile paint scheme during the 58th annual Richmond 400.
