3M is going to use its NASCAR platform this weekend to promote the company's Hire Our Heroes program.

The Maplewood-based company's campaign is aimed at training returning military veterans in auto collision repair jobs, as well as to support other efforts aimed at employing veterans.

Earlier this month, 3M NASCAR driver Greg Biffle and others unveiled new artwork – featuring a saluting veteran – emblazoned on the hood of 3M's No. 16 Ford Fusion.

The new artwork will be on display during the AAA Texas 500 in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday.
