About NASCAR Day
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing is an American auto racing sanctioning and operating company that is best known for stock-car racing.
This is quite a unique holiday. NASCAR Day is about as American as it gets. On the third Friday of every May, racing fans from across the nation unite in their love of the sport. However, this celebration goes much deeper than just the racetrack.
NASCAR Day originated in 2003 as a charity effort. The NASCAR Foundation used the event to bring fans together not only to share their love of the sport but to extend a helping hand to the less fortunate. Over the years, millions of dollars have been raised and donated to a variety of charities, particularly those benefiting children.
This is a great weekend for NASCAR fans. However, you needn’t be a racing fan to embrace this obscure yet interesting holiday. Take a look at the NASCAR foundation this upcoming May and consider making a charitable donation yourself. Numerous families would thank you for your contribution.
