It's For the Kids!
Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) is the official charity of Speedway Motorsports Inc. and Bristol Motor Speedway. The Bristol Chapter was founded in 1996 to help children in the surrounding area of Bristol Motor Speedway (serving 16 counties) by Bruton Smith, Chairman of the Board of Speedway Motorsports, Inc.
Operating as a non-profit foundation, Bristol Speedway Children's Charities is governed by a board of local trustees whose sole purpose is to distribute the funds raised each year to qualified local children's-based 501c-3 organizations. Ms. Claudia H. Byrd serves as the director of Bristol Speedway Children's Charities. In 2013, the Bristol Chapter awarded $742,000 in funds to 87 different children's agencies serving northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia.
This year, our chapter will host the following events (among many others) to support children in our region:
- The Ultimate Bristol Experiences Online Auction (Fulfillment during April and August race weekends)
- Sharky 500 and Kids Expo
- Ford Speedway in Lights and Speedway in Lights 5K
