Daytona Beach, FL - In an annual remembrance for the events of September 11, Daytona International Speedway is holding their 14th Annual 9/11 'Drive to Donate' tomorrow (September 7). The Speedway partners with OneBlood in order to bring the Central Florida community together to give the "Gift of Live."
DIS Public Relations Director Andrew Booth said they are offering incentives for those that donate blood.
Every guest that donates blood will receive:
· A general admission ticket voucher for the 2020 Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race (voucher must be redeemed by July 1, 2020)
· Special edition, ‘9/11 Patriot Day’ T-shirt
· Wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening
Booth said there are a couple of incentives that depend on the number of units collected. If a minimum of 500 units is collected, every person who donated will get an entry to win a DAYTONA 500 Club ticket package for two for the 2020 DAYTONA 500 is available. If they reach 900 units, it's an entry to win a DAYTONA 500 Club ticket package for two for the 2020 Coke Zero Sugar 400.
The blood drive takes place at Daytona International Speedway tomorrow, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., in the UNOH Fanzone. Donors can enter the Speedway through Gate 40 and the Turn 1 tunnel, located off of Williamson Blvd.
