| , RacinToday.com Wednesday, September 2 2009


Come to the track as a fan. Leave as a hero.

That’s the mantra in 2009 at Phoenix International Raceway for NASCAR fans, who have the chance to save a life just by rolling up their sleeves.

Phoenix International Raceway, with the American Red Cross Arizona Region and the NASCAR Foundation, is one of over 20 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tracks and 30 NASCAR locations scheduled to host the annual NASCAR Foundation Blood Drive in 2009. PIR’s drive will take place on Thursday, September 10, and is scheduled to run from 11 a.m. (MST) to 7 p.m. at the infield media center inside the track’s famed blue walls and one-mile oval.

Potential donors can register now at www.givelife.org by entering the sponsor code “PIR.” Information is also available by calling Jason Davenport of PIR at (623) 463-5660.

The NASCAR Foundation Blood Drive seeks to provide a unique experience that brings out the goodwill and community pride in all race fans. In its history, the Drive has collected enough blood to potentially save over 25,000 lives.

Those visiting Phoenix International Raceway for the NASCAR Foundation Blood Drive will have the chance to take in a unique racing experience while at the track. Presenting donors will be entered in a drawing to win one of a number of NASCAR-themed prizes. In addition, presenting donors who contribute to Phoenix International Raceway’s holiday charity by bringing a canned food item and/or toy for donation will be entered into a special drawing.

Potential blood donors must weigh 110 pounds and be at least 18 years of age. Potential donors must be in good health, must not have donated blood in the past 56 days, and must present a current donor card or proper form of photo identification at the time of donation.

Donation slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so potential donors are encouraged to act swiftly to take in the ultimate combination of community and racing.
