Happy NASCAR Day: Start your engines, race fans

Start your engines, race fans! If you happen to be a NASCAR fan, and who isn’t, hold onto your checkered flag – it’s NASCAR Day! The annual event takes place on the third Friday in May.

For folks passionate about motor-sports, this winning holiday encourages friends and fans of NASCAR to support charities of the non-profit NASCAR Foundation by raising funds and encouraging volunteer participation across America. Since the NASCAR Day’s inception in 2004, millions of dollars have been raised for numerous charities over the years.
