Phoenix Raceway to host track laps for charity Saturday, Oct. 17

PHOENIX – Race fans that wish to get a personal feel for the host track of the NASCAR Championship Weekend will get their chance when Phoenix Raceway hosts Track Laps for Charity on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 6-9 p.m. For a donation of $25 to Arizona Accelerator Charities, Track Laps for Charity will provide fans the opportunity to drive around Phoenix Raceway in their own personal vehicles in a safe and socially-distanced manner alongside their friends and family.

“This is a unique time for our community and we wanted to provide a special experience for our fans while also raising money through Arizona Accelerator Charities to give back to those in need,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese. “Fans will get to experience the track’s banking and the infamous dogleg from the comfort of their own vehicle while knowing that their donation will also be making a positive impact here locally in Arizona.”

All funds raised will support Arizona Accelerator Charities, a 501(c)(3) donor-advised fund under The NASCAR Foundation. Arizona Accelerator Charities’ mission is to accelerate the development of children in Arizona by supporting education, children and families of our military and military veterans, and life enrichment programs for children and families in our community.

For their $25 donation, fans will get to experience five paced laps around the 1-mile oval. Pre-registration online is encouraged and fans can secure their spot now by visiting
