Those who make a $5 donation will receive the 2010 NASCAR Day collectable lapel pin in exchange for their contribution.
In addition, Auto Club Speedway is offering a special ticket package surrounding NASCAR Day. For only $50, race fans that purchase the NASCAR Day ticket package will receive:

NASCAR Day festivities at Auto Club Speedway begin on Monday, May 10 with “Jaylen’s Car Wash” on Pit Road. 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 Jaylen and thousands of other children’s dreams come true by hosting “Jaylen’s Car Wash” on Monday, May 10th from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
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,” then a quick lap around the track to dry their car, topping off a unique visit for a worthy cause. 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.
NASCAR Day collectable lapel pins are also available for a $5 donation at the Auto Club Speedway ticket office or online at www.autoclubspeedway.com/nascarday.
