Great Clips to Sponsor Charity Haircuts at Sonoma Raceway…
Clay Millican doesn’t hide the fact that he’s had his fair share of haircuts since Great Clips came on as an official sponsor of his Stringer Performance dragster. While most of his pre-race haircuts happen in an area salon, this weekend Millican will be changing up his haircut venue to the racetrack. Great Clips stylists will be joining the fun in Sonoma this weekend by providing haircuts to spectators in exchange for a charity donation. The at-track activation is one that Great Clips has don’t for several years on the NASCAR circuit, and will now be bringing to select races on the NHRA circuit.
