Speedway Children's Charities was founded by O. Bruton Smith, Chairman of Speedway Motorsports Incorporated and Sonic Automotive Incorporated, as a memoriam and legacy to his son, Bruton Cameron Smith. After losing his young child, Smith became passionate about wanting to help children in need.

"Our sole concern at SCC is to help a child in need," says Smith.

SCC grew into a national effort in 1982, expanding to eight chapters nationwide. Through the years, SCC has funded thousands of organizations and impacted the lives of millions of children across America.
