3M NASCAR Guru Larry Swope to Retire

Larry Swope, a 34-year veteran of 3M and the moving force behind the company's involvement in NASCAR, has elected to retire March 1, 2011. Larry joined 3M in 1977 after 10 years at Goodyear. His leadership with 3M's NASCAR program has helped 3M become an industry icon within the sport and among sponsors, as well as drive growth via the various business units that utilize one of 3M's best assets.

In addition, Larry has been a fixture in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup garages for years, leading key customers through the garages for an up-close look at the world of NASCAR. 3M PR
