Help Kansas Speedway Provide Disaster Relief to Kansas and Missouri
Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren announced today that Kansas Speedway will provide an opportunity for race fans to assist the disaster relief efforts in the tornado ravaged areas of Reading, Kansas and Joplin, Missouri.

For a $25 donation to the American Red Cross, fans will have the opportunity to drive their personal vehicle around Kansas Speedway on Friday, June 24 from 2 PM – 7 PM. For a donation of $50 to the American Red Cross, fans will have the opportunity to drive their vehicles around Kansas Speedway on Saturday, June 18 from 6:30 PM – 10 PM as part of the first event under the lights at Kansas Speedway.

“In times of crisis, it’s important for everyone to come together and help those in need,” said Warren. “We have several ticket holders in each of these devastated areas and we wanted to make sure they know that they, along with the rest of their communities, are not forgotten during times like this. I challenge others in our community, both race fans and non-race fans, to join us in our efforts to provide support to these areas.”

Cash and check donations will be accepted by the American Red Cross at Kansas Speedway on June 4 - 5. Vouchers will be given to any fan that donates during Kansas Speedway’s upcoming race weekend that will be redeemable for the corresponding date.

All vehicles must be street legal and equipped with enough seatbelts for all passengers. RV’s, tractor trailers and motorcycles will not be permitted.

Fans can text “redcross” to 90999 to contribute a $10 donation. Fans are also encouraged to visit the American Red Cross website, http://www.redcross.org, for additional ways to assist the relief efforts.

Just checked both the KS web sites and didn't find anything posted. TV news showed a tornado on the ground in Kansas City earlier today. Anyone know if it was near the track?

Sounded like most of the activity was on the south side of KC from the reports I was hearing. They had a report of a funnel around 115th or 132nd and Metcalf.

We've been having such lovely spring weather here...as usual. :D
