Racing to Help Children in North Texas
A Strong History of GivingSince 1997, Speedway Children’s Charities, Texas Chapter has distributed more than $6.7 million in funding to children’s organizations surrounding Texas Motor Speedway. The funds distributed by Speedway Children’s Charities are raised through special events held throughout the year. Most of Speedway Children’s Charities events are geared around the three major race weeks at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speedway Children’s Charities was founded by Speedway Motorsports, Inc.’s Chairman and CEO, O. Bruton Smith in 1982 after the death of his son. Since 1982, the charity has grown to include chapters at each of the SMI speedways across the country including, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Bristol, TN, Sonoma, CA, Fort Worth, TX, and Las Vegas, NV and Loudon, NH.
It is likely that Speedway Children’s Charities, Texas Chapter has granted funds to more than one local children’s organization you may be familiar with. In 2009, the Texas Chapter distributed $1 million to children’s organizations across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Our reach is far, and the dollars we raise go to directly help children in our community.
Children’s organizations in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties are eligible to apply for the Speedway Children’s Charities’ annual grant. Qualified applicants must directly fulfill needs of children in our area and be a registered 501 (c) (3) organization.
