Story By: SCOTT RUNNING / STAFFORD MOTOR SPEEDWAY – STAFFORD SPRINGS, CT – This Friday, July 20th, NAPA Auto Parts and Stafford Motor Speedway will present the 5th Annual Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund Track Walk.
This is an opportunity for all fans in attendance to get a first-hand and close-up look at the famous half-mile layout at Stafford Speedway by participating in the Track Walk.
Each fan donating $10 for the Track Walk will also receive a NAPA tee-shirt or hat. Participants can access the track through the gate which is located behind Section A of the main grandstand. The track walk will begin at the conclusion of qualifying heats and prior to the start of feature racing this Friday night. Lace up your walking shoes for some foot power before horsepower takes over this Friday.
NAPA will also have several raffle prizes as part of the Track Walk festivities. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund in support of military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation. Last year’s Track Walk helped raise over $7,500 for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and over the past 4 seasons, over $25,000 has been donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund through the fundraising efforts of NAPA Auto Parts and Stafford Motor Speedway.
“NAPA is once again proud to support our nation’s military and especially our veterans who made it home safely,” said Geoff Watson, General Manager of NAPA Connecticut. “Over the past five years NAPA has partnered with Stafford Motor Speedway and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to provide an annual donation to this most deserving group. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes fund supports veterans who have returned with traumatic brain injuries. They provide physical and psychological medicine to those in need in state of the art treatment facilities. Over the past five years NAPA and Stafford Speedway have donated over $25,000 to this fund. This year we have received over $2,500 in donations and are hoping to make this our biggest contributing year yet. The Track Walk at the Speedway is our signature event which allows any and all to make a small donation and walk the track for our heroes. Please remember that 100% of all donations go directly to the Intrepid Fallen Hero Fund. We hope to see you at the track this Friday. Thanks for your support and God Bless America.”
