Talladega Superspeedway Fans and NASCAR Foundation Efforts Net Nearly $100,000 Extra for Alabama Relief
Race fans came from hundreds of miles and many different states to participate in last weekend’s Donate and Drive ‘DEGA event at Talladega Superspeedway, raising close to $34,000 for the American Red Cross and Alabama relief efforts. The NASCAR Foundation netted more than $58,000 for disaster relief through donations and online sales of $5 NASCAR Unites wristbands, with more yet to come. The nearly $100,000 is in addition to the $100,000 that Talladega Superspeedway already committed on April 28.
“I’m extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from the NASCAR community,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “With the help of our race fans, our media partners, sponsors and The NASCAR Foundation, we’ve managed to raise a lot of money to help the citizens of Alabama that were impacted by the storms. It’s a tremendous step in the right direction.”
