AUSTIN, Texas, October 27, 2017 /For immediate release/ Circuit of the Americas (COTA) and Texas Lottery partnered with OSD (Operation Supply Drop) to host massive “Thank You Deployment” for 400 Military community members for Formula One Finals and Stevie Wonder concert.

Cambrey Oehler, Manager of Corporate Partnership Activation, said, “We are proud to support members of the Armed Forces and veterans at all motorsport events at Circuit of The Americas. This year in particular, we hosted numerous veterans and their families for the main race day of the Formula 1 USGP and the Stevie Wonder concert courtesy of Texas Lottery. We were excited to partner with Operation Supply Drop to put these tickets in the hands of deserving vets and their families and friends and are looking forward to working with OSD for future endeavors.”
