NASCAR Day Dream Experience
May 19, 2018 (Charlotte, NC)
An All-Star Experience
May 19, 2018 (Charlotte, NC) – If you’re looking for a high-energy, exciting experience, look no further than Charlotte Motor Speedway. The complex encompasses nearly 2,000 acres with the spotlight on the 1.5-mile superspeedway. And the track isn’t the only thing super-sized, the Charlotte race community including the NASCAR drivers themselves have hearts that are larger than life! Our first-ever NASCAR Day Dream Experience at the 2018 Monster Energy All-Star Race was truly a dream come true.
In partnership with the Charlotte Motor Speedway we provided a V.I.P. experience for a group of Charlotte, NC area kids living with special needs. With support from referral partners, Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Hospital, DDR, InReach, Autism Charlotte and The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte, we welcomed Day Dream Kids and their families for an action-packed day at the track!
Day Dream Kids and their families had a full race experience which started well before the drivers ever revved their engines. The kids, geared up with infield passes, hit the in-field in V.I.P. transportation. Joe Gibbs Racing invited our special VIP’s to tour Hauler #11 and extended a warm welcome to Kyle Bucsh’s Pit Box that had the kids feeling like Jr. Crew Chiefs! The Day Dreamers spent quality time with Alex Bowman, Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne and each walked away with lots of autographs, cool gear and big smiles!
After their exciting in-field experience the kids made their way back to the best seats on the track to watch the checkered flags wave. Thanks to another very special donor, each family was able to enjoy the race from a private condo overlooking the track. A first-class experience for all!
We’re so thankful of our partnership the Charlotte Motor Speedway, without them, this Day Dream would not have been possible. Our Day Dream program allows us to bring families, facing similar challenges, together to celebrate new friendships and to create life-long relationships with some very special kids.
