Fans have the unique chance to walk in the tire tracks of their favorite NASCAR heroes during the Motor Racing Outreach and Speedway Children's Charities Track Walk on New Hampshire Motor Speedway's oval.
On Saturday, June 27, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., fans can walk the track for a good cause, alongside current NASCAR stars Bobby Labonte, Joe Nemechek, and Sam Hornish, Jr.
The walk will begin promptly after the NASCAR Nationwide Series Camping World RV Sales 200 presented by Turtle Wax on Saturday. Walkers can register online through June 22, with trackside registration beginning Friday, June 26.
Participants will receive wristbands and a t-shirt, available for pickup at the Track Walk Registration tent, Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The yellow registration tent is located just past the entrance to the infield tunnel. Participants must also stop there to sign a waiver form prior to walking (children under 18 must have a legal guardian present to sign the waiver form). Registration for adults is $25 in advance or $30 at the speedway, with proceeds going to Speedway Children's Charities and Motor Racing Outreach. Children age 16 and under can walk for free. Any donation or personal fundraising is welcome.
"It's great to welcome these two outstanding organizations to our speedway," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway. "What Motor Racing Outreach brings to racing is refreshing to see in professional sports, and Speedway Children's Charities continues to provide so much for children of the area in need."
Each Speedway Motorsports, Inc. facility has a local chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, which helps support programs for children throughout each track's local area. In 2008, they awarded more than $3.4 million to over 420 organizations.
Motor Racing Outreach provides spiritual support to the racing community.
The Speedway Children's Charities Track Walk, in partnership with Motor Racing Outreach, will occur rain or shine. For more information or to register online, please visit Speedway Children's Charities online at www.speedwaycharities.org or Motor Racing Outreach at www.go2mro.com/home.htm.
