When the green flag flies for the Quaker State 400 Available at Walmart, it is all business for the 40 drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series as they battle for the win. But before the drivers strap in, Atlanta‘s NASCAR fans will help kids win in our community.

The Atlanta Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities has a host of events and activities planned for - race week and all the way through the checkered flag that fans can participate – all to help the kids.

“NASCAR fans are the lifeblood of Speedway Children’s Charities,” said Kathy Bradley, Director of the Atlanta Chapter.  “Any amount helps and with all of our planned events and activities throughout race week and weekend, there are so many great ways for fans to get involved to help support kids in need in our community.”  

New for the Quaker State 400 Available at Walmart weekend, SCC will be holding a 50-50 raffle. Half of the money raised through the raffle will benefit kids in the local community, while the other half of the money will be returned to the winner. Fans can participate in the 50-50 raffle by purchasing an entry from the many volunteers canvassing the Speedway over race weekend.
