For the second year, Speedway Children‘s Charities (SCC), the official charity of Speedway Motorsports, will encourage race fans to make a difference in the lives of Austin-area children while providing more fun ways to enjoy the March 24-26 NASCAR weekend at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) with their friends and family.
“With the success of last year‘s fundraising translating to a $15,000 grant to Safe House Project, we couldn‘t wait to plan more fun ways for race fans to give back to the community during this year‘s NASCAR at COTA event,” said Speedway Children‘s Charities National Executive Director Lisa Starnes. “Throughout all Speedway Motorsports facilities, we are driven by our ‘Fans First‘ attitude, and what better way to exhibit that than offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences, unique auction items and other opportunities to race fans to support local children in need and enhance their race weekend experience.”
Fans attending NASCAR at COTA can take part in any of the following events to benefit children in need in the Austin, Texas community:
