Dover International Speedway’s annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive

Donors will receive a free pace car ride around the Monster

Our good friend Gary Camp sent us this information of interest to all NASCAR fans.

Carrying on a tradition established more than five years ago, Dover International Speedway will honor the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with its annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive. The event will be Tuesday, Sept. 11 in the Rollins Center at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.

The Monster Mile and Blood Bank of Delmarva first teamed up in 2006 for this event, and its success has made it an annual occurrence since.

All donors will be offered the opportunity to take a pace car ride around the one-mile, concrete oval with Track Historian George Keller, who has not missed a NASCAR race weekend or other motorsports event in Dover since the track opened in 1969. In addition, 94.7 WDSD-FM will broadcast its morning show from the blood drive, with Sky Phillips and the Wake-Up Crew live and on-site from 5 to 10 a.m.

The 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive on Sept. 11 is open to the public and will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Rollins Center Ballroom at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. To make an appointment, call 1-888-8-BLOOD-8 or visit http://www.DelmarvaBlood.org. Although appointments are strongly encouraged, walk-in donors are welcome and will be taken if time permits.
