Pocono Raceway to Host 2012 Charity Car Wash
Includes Track Lap, All Proceeds Benefit United Way of Monroe County
LONG POND, PA (July 13, 2012) – Pocono Raceway announced today they will host the 2012 Charity Car Wash, which will include the opportunity for donors to take their personal vehicles around their 2.5-mile Superspeedway, on Saturday, July 28th from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET. All proceeds will benefit the United Way of Monroe County.
For a donation of $10, per vehicle, individuals can choose from two options. Option one includes volunteers washing the attendees’ vehicle, followed by a controlled-speed lap around the Raceway. Option two includes the lap around the track, without the car wash.
“We are very excited about this year’s Charity Car Wash for a worthy charity located within our Pocono community” said Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway’s President and CEO. “Last year’s car wash was a huge success as individuals came out, under rainy conditions, for a chance to take a thrilling lap around our Raceway. By moving this date later in the summer, holding it on a weekend and allowing fans to take their vehicle out on our recently-repaved track for the first time, we are expecting a great turnout to raise money for the United Way of Monroe County.”
The 2012 Charity Car Wash will begin inside the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Garage area, inside Pocono Raceway. Attendees will enter through the Gate 1 Tunnel at Earnhardt Road, located off Long Pond Road. Signs inside the facility will guide individuals to the Garage area. Cash and checks, written to The United Way of Monroe County, will be accepted. There is no limited on the amount of times a vehicle can go through the process, but each car wash and/or lap will require a $10 donation. This event is rain or shine.
Staffing the event will be members of the Pocono Raceway staff and community volunteers associated with the United Way of Monroe County.
