Auto Club Speedway has teamed up with eight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tracks, to launch a one-of-a-kind online charity auction featuring a collection of VIP at-track experiences to benefit The NASCAR Foundation.

These one-of-a-kind packages are designed to bring fans up close and personal to all the excitement during a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekend and offer a variety of items that help contribute to the ultimate fan experience including season tickets, access to suite passes, pre-race pace car rides, and Victory Lane celebrations. Participating tracks include Auto Club Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Daytona International Speedway, Kansas Speedway, Martinsville Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Phoenix International Raceway and Talladega Superspeedway.

"This auction is a great way for race fans to contribute to a worthwhile cause and bid on really cool VIP race experiences," said Auto Club Speedway president Gillian Zucker.  "I know the auction winners will have an amazing time!"

Fans will have the opportunity to bid on several 2008 and 2009 race packages including a 2008 Talladega Superspeedway package, that features a ride in the pace car on Sunday morning as well as an invitation to attend the pre-race ceremonies with track President Rick Humphrey.  The 2009 Daytona 500 package includes Pre-Race/SPRINT FANZONE passes, admission into the Daytona 500 Experience motorsports attraction, and access to

Victory Lane
for the Daytona 500 post-race celebration.  

The online auction begins Thursday, Sept. 18 and will end Monday, Oct. 20 at 5:00 pm EDT (excludes Talladega, Phoenix and Martinsville packages which will end earlier due to race date). Fans can visit WWW.NASCAR.COM/foundation for more information.
