Martin Truex Jr and Casey Mears face off in Guitar Hero at the Brickyard with the Troops

If you are at the Brickyard this weekend, you may want to think about getting to the track a little early and cheer on Earnhardt Ganassi Racing's Martin Truex Jr and Richard Childress Racing's Casey Mears as they face the members of the Indiana National Guard troops in a serious battle. No, we arent sending these boys out to find weapons of mass destruction, just some great Guitar Hero fun with these local heroes and their families.

The troops’ families will also be on-hand to meet the drivers, play Guitar Hero and video chat via web-cam with their loved ones abroad.
