Track tours, goodie bags, the chance to win the VIP Track Experience Sweepstakes all part of NASCAR Foundation’s Annual Blood Drive
San Bernardino County, Calif. (September 1, 2009) – Auto Club Speedway and The NASCAR Foundation will hold its 4th Annual Blood Drive on Friday, Sept. 11 at Auto Club Speedway. The drive will be held from 1-6 p.m. at the Speedway, 9300 Cherry Ave. in Fontana. The Life Stream bloodmobile will be on hand as will the Inland Empire’s Country Music Leader KFROG (95.1 FM).
Those donating to the effort, which will take place at the Speedway’s Opportunity, California FanZone, will receive a FREE track tour, a gift bag, generously donated by 3M and the chance to win The NASCAR Foundation 2009 “VIP Track Experience,” which include two tickets to a NASCAR sanctioned race.

Each year The NASCAR Foundation Blood Drive mobilizes some of NASCAR’s biggest entities - tracks, drivers, teams and sponsors - in an effort to help meet the on-going need for more than 39,000 blood donations every day. The national effort, spearheaded by The NASCAR Foundation, aims to help maintain safe blood supply levels and lessen the blood shortages that often occur during the summer months and around holidays.
In 2008, 29 tracks participated in the national drive. The NASCAR Foundation’s overall drive collected 4,261 pints of blood, potentially saving more than 12,000 lives. To learn more about The NASCAR Foundation, visit www.nascar.com/foundation.
