NASCAR Nationwide CARFAX 250 ~ Give Kids The World View-A-Thon

On August 16, during the CARFAX 250 NASCAR Nationwide series race at Michigan International Speedway, the #20 Old Spice Car will have a new look as it races to help special children from around the world. Give Kids The World, the nonprofit organization that provides week-long, cost-free vacations to Central Florida for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, will be honored with its very own “Give Kids The World Village” design. The brightly colored car was designed by Wish child Emily Marsala and will be driven by Joe Gibbs Racing driver Tony Stewart.

In celebration of this unique partnership, Give Kids The World is encouraging NASCAR fans everywhere to participate in a View-A-Thon to help raise $25,000, or $100 for every mile of the race.To learn more about the Give Kids The World View-A-Thon, log on to http://www.gktw.org/newsletter/nascar_gktw.html .
