The Nashville Superspeedway Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities has donated $12,000 to a Tennessee group focused on combating human trafficking.

The SCC Nashville Chapter’s focus is raising funds for Middle Tennessee and regional nonprofit organizations with a concentration on assisting Volunteer State children.

Together, we serve the most vulnerable in our communities to strengthen their resolve to pursue their future goals  their checkered flag  regardless of hardships and hazards in the way.”
