Men's Health Network and Takeda have partnered to launch the "Gout Pit Stop," an educational campaign to raise awareness about gout, a type of arthritis that affects approximately 8.3 million people in the U.S.

Race fans will have a chance to experience the "Gout Pit Stop" firsthand at a special destination in the Fan Zone at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend, featuring fun and engaging ways to learn about gout including a prize wheel, trivia game, sweepstakes entry kiosks and special appearances by racing personalities, who will share their personal gout stories and how it affects their lives in the fast lane. Gout patients and their friends and family can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Richard Petty Driving Experience* (RPDE), where they will have the chance to ride in a race car on a track. For every person who enters, Takeda will make a $1 donation to Men's Health Network up to $25,000.

Race weekends can take their toll on a fan's body – the walking, food, high temperatures – and the "Gout Pit Stop" will help provide relief from the elements of a fan race experience.

Be sure to stop by the display during race weekend or visit for more information.

* Grand Prize is awarded in the form of $500 Gift Card to attend Richard Petty Driving Experience. Each First Prize is awarded in the form of $250 Gift Card to attend Richard Petty Driving Experience.
