Dragster will be a part of the convenience store chain's summer-long military fundraising



Cary, N.C. -- campaign Kangaroo Express, the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, operated by The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTRY), today announced that Don O'Neal will join this year's Salute Our Troops tour.

In addition to National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and Lucas Oil Racing events, O'Neal and his dragster will travel throughout the Southeast to recognize military personnel and their families while helping to raise funds for military support organizations as part of the Kangaroo Express Salute Our Troops campaign.
