Speedway Children’s Charities’ Laps for Charity Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

The Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities will present the fourth annual Laps for Charity event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Jan. 26, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. NASCAR fans and car enthusiasts will have the unique opportunity to drive their personal vehicle around the 1.5-mile superspeedway at speeds up to 75 miles per hour (behind a pace car), all in the name of charity.

Fans are invited to experience the drive of a lifetime, throttling their personal vehicle on the same track that the superstars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will race on in the KOBALT 400 on March 9.

Laps for Charity is open to all licensed drivers 18 years of age and older and the entry fee is $30 per vehicle for three laps (and you can buy three more laps for just $20). All occupants of the car must be at least 6 years of age or older. The vehicle must be street legal. Drivers must have valid license and proof of insurance. Car clubs and company fleets are welcome to participate.

Drivers may have their picture taken in LVMS’s victory lane for an additional donation of only $10. The event will be held rain or shine.

Laps for Charity is sponsored by Las Vegas Motor Speedway, The CW/MY LVTV, Lotus Broadcasting and the Las Vegas Review-Journal.All proceeds from Laps for Charity will benefit the Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. More than 840 cars (including a limo) were entered in last year’s event and $32,000 was raised for local children’s causes.
