The New Hampshire chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities is hard at work planning numerous events for 2011. We are kicking off the season of speed with a bang, beginning with the Speedway Star competition, which will be held on Saturday, April 23, at the FANtasy Drive Open House. With help from our celebrity panel of judges, SCC will be holding auditions to perform the national anthem.
Two winners will be selected to sing at either the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on July 16 or the NASCAR Camping World Series race September 24.
In May, we are excited to be partnering with the Injury Prevention Program at the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock for the Safe Kids 500. Children of all ages are welcome to come ride their bikes where the cars and stars of NASCAR race and don’t forget you helmet! We would like to extend a BIG thank you to Hannaford Supermarkets and MVP Healthcare for sponsoring this evening of fun at “The Magic Mile.”
July is full of exciting opportunities for race fans at the speedway. One of the events that Speedway Children’s Charities is hosting will be an auction to have dinner with none other than Tony “Smoke” Stewart himself. Stewart will be bringing along Fox Pit Reporter Dick Berggren and Greg Kretschmar from WGIR’s “The Morning Buzz.”
We will also be giving fans the opportunity to drive their own car around “The Magic Mile,” during our Laps for Charity Event.
If you like to golf, come join us at Canterbury Woods Country Club for our One for the Kids Golf Tournament, presented by Malco Distributors of New England.
Back at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, SCC will be hosting the 19th Annual Governor’s Breakfast to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock (CHaD) and David’s House.
Rounding out the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend will be the annual track walk and Ride of a Lifetime event.
For more information on the above events please visit us at www.newhampshire.speedwaycharities.org.
We hope that you can join us for these exciting events. The best part about it all is that all the proceeds from our events help kids in need throughout New England!
Looking forward to seeing you at the track!
