Denny Hamlin to participate in Q&A session
Dover International Speedway will once again host a track walk to benefit The NASCAR Foundation and Autism Speaks immediately following the “Buckle Up 200” presented by Click It or Ticket NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday, May 30, 2015.
This fun event provides fans with the exclusive opportunity to raise money for two worthy organizations by walking or running the entire one-mile, concrete track. Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will help kick off the event at the Monster Monument with a Q&A session hosted by Riki Rachtman.
Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization and Dover International Speedway is proud to have been a partner for the past nine years. FedEx is also continuing its five-year partnership with Autism Speaks by sponsoring the “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on May 31.
The NASCAR Foundation complements the objectives of Autism Speaks by supporting charitable causes around the country that focus on helping children succeed in life no matter their obstacles. Funds raised during the track walk to benefit the foundation will come back directly to the Dover community this fall through its Classroom Donation Program.
Fans of all ages can register now at NASCARFoundation.org. Advance registration costs $20 for adults and $25 at the track on race weekend. Children ages 14 and younger can register for just $10. On-site registration will be held on Friday and Saturday at The NASCAR Foundation display in the FanZone, located just outside Turn 4 of the track.
Participants will be placed in groups and led by PAWS for People and their dogs. Walkers will have the chance to interact with the dogs or even register, prior to the kick-off, to help walk the dogs (space is limited). PAWS for People (Pet-Assisted Visitation Volunteer Services) is a non-profit organization committed to providing therapeutic visits to any person in the community who would benefit from interaction with a well-trained, loving pet.
NASCAR returns to Dover International Speedway for an action-packed triple-header weekend May 29-31. It all begins on Friday with the “Lucas Oil 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. NASCAR XFINITY Series races on Saturday with the “Buckle Up 200” presented by Click It or Ticket XFINITY Series race, followed by the “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday.
