Speedway Children's Charities New Hampshire Chapter
The mission of Speedway Children's Charities is to care for children with educational, financial, social and medical needs to help them lead productive lives. Founded by Bruton Smith in 1982, Speedway Children’s Charities is a non-profit 501c (3) organization providing funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations that meet the direct needs of children. The New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities was officially established in 2009. Since then, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities has raised more than $1.8 million. The goal is to ensure that every child in need be given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthier future.
The New Hampshire Chapter is one of eight chapters around the country, and combined in 2019, Speedway Children’s Charities distributed over $3 million in grants to more than 415 different charitable organizations across the country, bringing the total funds distributed since 1982 to more than $58.3 million, ensuring many children in need are given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthy future. The money raised comes in large part thanks to the fundraising efforts of the eight Speedway Motorsports facilities: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Sonoma Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway.
