June Camping World Truck Series Race At Iowa Speedway Gets Sponsor


Iowa Speedway and The NASCAR Foundation announced Tuesday a race entitlement sponsorship to honor the Foundation’s 10 Years of Giving and to help children coping with illness or injury in Iowa and across the country.

The June 18 Camping World Truck Series Race in Iowa will be named The Speediatrics 200. This marks the first-ever entitlement sponsorship for Speediatrics, which is The NASCAR Foundation’s program that provides support to hospitals, specialty clinics, camps and other organizations offering children’s medical and health care services across the Untied States.

The NASCAR Foundation provides medical treatments for 50,000 children each year since 2006 and continues to extend its reach beyond the hospital walls by supporting other causes related to helping children live a healthy life. Speediatrics began shortly after the founding of The NASCAR Foundation with the humble goal of importing the color, excitement, and fun of NASCAR into children’s hospital rooms, wings, and waiting areas.

During the weekend of the June Truck race at Iowa, race fans will be encouraged to visit and for every $25 donated, the NASCAR Foundation will deliver a Speedy Bear stuffed animal to sick children at Mercy Children’s Hospital and Clinics in Iowa, as well as other hospitals and organizations across the Untied States.
