The NASCAR Foundation

***We have a limited amount of post-close marathon entries for participants interested in running for R.A.C.E. who were not selected in the lottery process. The entries will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Pat Kenny ( for more information.***

When you run for R.A.C.E. , you are supporting youth programs, the military and safe driving efforts in the Chicagoland area. Through grants, scholarships, food drives and more, the R.A.C.E. Foundation provided more than $70,000 in charitable gifts during its inaugural year in 2012. With your hard work, dedication and fundraising, we hope to reach an even greater number in 2013. Please don’t wait another minute to Join the R.A.C.E. today!
