Race fans will be able to help save lives and make their own racing experience
even better through an American Red Cross blood drive at Martinsville Speedway
on September 17.
The American Red Cross will be set up in the infield of Martinsville Speedway
from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on September 17.
Anyone registering to donate a pint of blood will receive a certificate for a
free ticket to the Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance Pole Day on October 22. The
TUMS Fast Relief 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race is scheduled for October 24.
“We know how NASCAR fans give back to their communities and this is just
another great opportunity for folks to help their community,” said
Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell. “It’s one of those things we
love to be involved with. I know many of our employees will be rolling up
their sleeves and we expect many other folks to help out, too.”
The goal for this year’s drive at Martinsville Speedway is 100 units. To make
an appointment, call 1.800.GIVE.LIFE. While appointments are suggested,
non-scheduled donors will be accepted on the day of the drive.
