New Hampshire Motor Speedway Track Walk to Benefit Speedway Children's Charities
Proceeds from the walk will benefit Speedway Children's Charities, the Kenny Irwin Jr. Memorial Foundation, Victory Junction Gang Camp and the NASCAR Foundation. All of these organizations provide vital services to children in need.
Directly following the NASCAR Nationwide Series Camping World RV Sales presented by RVs.com 200 race, fans will be able to walk the racing surface, cross the start/finish line, and experience the track from another perspective.
"This is a great opportunity for race fans to walk their 'Field of Dreams' here at New Hampshire Motor Speedway," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway. "In addition, it is a wonderful way to help raise money for children."
Fans are able to form teams when they register for the walk, and may set fundraising goals online. Teams who reach their goals will receive special recognition.
