“We are so excited to partner with Toys For Tots with our final Track Laps for Charity event of 2023,” said Brian Crichton, President of Talladega Superspeedway. “We hope to have a huge turnout from our local community, as well as those from across the southeast, to raise funds and help make the holidays extra special for so many kids. We are also thrilled to have the Sleep in Heavenly Peace volunteers who will be constructing beds for children. This event is going to be extra special, and it’s a great way to have fun on the high banks for Talladega and support local children in our area.”
Toys For Tots will also be collecting new, unwrapped toys and will distribute those toys to less fortunate children during the holidays. The minimal $50 donation per car/truck for the laps will help raise funds for the speedway’s outreach fund, ‘DEGA Gives, a donor advised fund of The NASCAR Foundation, which will donate the money raised to Toys For Tots.
In addition, Sleep In Heavenly Peace, part of the United Way of North Talladega County, will be on site, along with a host of volunteers, to build 120 beds for children in our local community who sleep on the floor or do not have their own bed. With make-shift assembly lines, beds will be built, and be equipped with box frames and mattresses, pillows, sheets and comforters.
As part of the fourth and final Track Laps for Charity event of ’23, fans will be able to tour the popular Talladega Garage Experience Presented By Coolray during an open house. Fans can get their photo taken in Ruoff Mortgage Victory Lane with the coveted Vulcan Trophy that goes to each NASCAR Cup Series winner at Talladega. BIG BILL’s 35,000 square foot Open Air Social Club, the epicenter of the TGE, will be a great place to lounge and enjoy value-priced concessions, plus see the garage bays where NASCAR teams prepare the cars during a race weekend. The Game Zone and Kids Zone, which is part of TGE’s 140,000 square-feet of open area, will also be open as it will be a jam-packed day of fun at the track.
