Drive Your Car Around Auto Club Speedway For Charity
"Jaylen's Car Wash" to benefit Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, the NASCAR Foundation
San Bernardino County, Calif. – If you’ve ever wanted to take a spin around the two-mile, 14-degree banking at Southern California’s premier motorsports facility all in the name of charity, here’s your chance. And we’ll even thank you by washing your car.
On Monday, May 10, Auto Club Speedway will kick off NASCAR Day (May 21) festivities with “Jaylen’s Car Wash” on Pit Road – a Southern California motorsports landmark -- all in effort to make one little boy’s, and thousands of other children’s dreams, come true. And when we’re done washing, dry your car off by taking a lap around the same track NASCAR stars will be battling side-by-side when the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoff race – the Pepsi 400 returns to Southern California on Sunday, October 10.
Four-year-old Jaylen is a Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) heart patient who has a dream of becoming a NASCAR driver when he grows up. Auto Club Speedway wants to help by hosting “Jaylen’s Car Wash” on Monday, May 10th from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. to help raise funds for LLUCH and The NASCAR Foundation, which supports a wide range of charitable initiatives that reflect the core values of the entire NASCAR Family.
For only $10, (proceeds to benefit LLUCH and The NASCAR Foundation), those visiting Auto Club Speedway can pull onto pit road and have their cars washed in a simulated “pit stop” by volunteers from Auto Club Speedway – all under the watchful eye of the guest of honor, Jaylen. Then a quick lap to dry your car around the track to top off a unique visit for a worthy cause.
Turtle Wax®, the world leader in car care, will donate all of the car care product used during “Jaylen’s Car Wash” and each participant will drive away with a sample of Turtle Wax’s latest product Turtle Wax ICE.
The $10 donation also comes with the NASCAR Day collectible lapel pin and a chance to win the NASCAR Day Sweepstakes, a trip for two to the 2010 NASCAR Champions Week in Las Vegas.
Every car washed will make a huge difference for those in need. Since 2008, Auto Club Speedway has raised over $131,000 for charity during its NASCAR Day efforts.
