NASCAR Day 2011 to be a Wet & Wild Affair

10 Years of NASCAR Championships

Fridays at Homestead-Miami Speedway always feature high-speed cars and unique rides; Friday, May 20 it will feature South Florida’s cleanest vehicles too. The world of motorsports will celebrate NASCAR Day’s 8th Anniversary, through which NASCAR has raised nearly $8 million for charitable initiatives.

This NASCAR Day, Homestead-Miami Speedway, in conjunction with the YMCA of Greater Miami and its Homestead YMCA Family Center, will host ‘Car Wash for Kids’ in an effort to better the lives of children. ‘Car Wash for Kids’ is a NASCAR Unites national fundraiser which has a goal of raising $1 million for children’s charities. Homestead-Miami Speedway will celebrate NASCAR Day from noon – 9 p.m.

“It’s always a good thing when two highly visible organizations form a unified front,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “Our car wash will benefit the children and the community served by the Homestead YMCA Family Center through what we hope to be a record-setting fundraising effort.”

Funds raised through NASCAR Unites will benefit The NASCAR Foundation and the Homestead YMCA Family Center. Those visiting Homestead-Miami Speedway will pull into the infield to have their cars washed by volunteers and Speedway staff; then a quick lap to dry their cars on the very same track where NASCAR will crown Champions during Ford Championship Weekend Nov. 18-20. For a $10 donation, attendees will receive:

► Car wash by volunteers and Speedway staff
► Paced lap on the Homestead-Miami Speedway oval
► A commemorative NASCAR Unites wrist band

"The Y is excited to be a part of this great event," says Abigail Harlan, executive director for the Homestead YMCA Family Center. "The Y is committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We hope our whole community comes out for the car wash, and enjoys the day - all the while giving back to kids through the NASCAR Foundation and the Y."
