The Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities would like to thank everyone that participated in any of our events during August Race Week!

We had so many different events going on all over property all weekend long we were able to raise a lot of money for the Children of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

You know us though we're always moving forward and now we are working on our Sharky 500 & Kids Expo to take place on October 17th. We are all very excited about the second year of this fundraiser! Last year we raced 4,400 rubber sharks down Beaver Creek here on the Speedway property and the winning shark's owner took home a Centurion Boat. Well this year we're giving away Bristol Motor Speedway's 2009 Ford Mustang Pace Car! Second place is $5,000 to Grand Home Furnishings and third place is a vacation package to Universal Studios Orlando courtesy of All Journeys Travel & Allegiant Air. Sharks are available at many different locations including online right here at www.speedwaycharities.org, All Pizza Plus locations, Tri-Cities Fas Mart Convenience Stores and Grand Home Furnishings. We hope to have thousands and thousands of little rubber sharks fighting for the checkered flag come October 17th!

We will also hold a Kids Expo that day that is totally free for everyone and will have a lot of free activities for kids including inflatables, a rock wall, face painting, monster trucks and much more! We will also be signing folks up to drive their own car around "The World's Fastest Half-Mile." We hope to see you there cheering on your shark and enjoying the festivities!
