Kansas Speedway and the Community Blood Center have joined together on a week-long blood drive Aug. 5-9 at Community Blood Center locations in Kansas and Missouri.
The first 1,500 donors during the blood drive will receive a voucher that they can redeem for two tickets with Turn 1 Terrace access only for Kansas Speedway’s Aug. 17 GRAND-AM Road Racing events or for two general admission tickets to Oct. 4’s Kansas Lottery 98.9 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race. Both days provide an abundance of racing action for fans.
The Community Blood Center serves over 70 hospitals in Kansas and Missouri, including the University of Kansas Hospital, a Kansas Speedway partner. The center needs 580 donors each day to meet area hospitals needs and during the summer months, the center struggles to meet that need.
Community Blood Center locations are in Overland Park and Topeka, Kan., and in Missouri, they are in Kansas City, Blue Springs, Gladstone and St. Joseph.
Vouchers can be redeemed in advance at Kansas Speedway ticket office only. On Aug. 17, vouchers must be redeemed at ticket booth nearest to Gate D. On Oct. 4, vouchers must be redeemed at ticket booth at Gate B.
