The NASCAR Foundation will be celebrating the fifth-annual celebration of NASCAR Day on Friday, May 16th and we need your help to make this the best year yet! Annually held on the Friday before the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Challenge, NASCAR Day is a one-day celebration of the NASCAR Spirit. NASCAR fans, corporations, schools and organizations across the country are encouraged to donate $5.00 and all participants will receive a collectable 2008 NASCAR Day lapel pin for their donation.

For the second year, The NASCAR Foundation will be celebrating NASCAR Day with the NASCAR Day Telethon. NASCAR drivers and celebrities will converge on Friday, May 16th at Sam Bass Gallery to celebrate NASCAR Day. As a loyal supporter of SPEEDWAY CHILDREN'S CHARITIES, you have the chance to join the NASCAR Community by participating in this industry-wide event.

New this year, the NASCAR Day Telethon has been extended - and a second day of giving will take place on Saturday, May 17th at the Sprint Experience. Sprint has also come on board with an added bonus to the charity who raises the most money during the NASCAR Day Telethon - an additional $24,000 donation courtesy of Sprint!
