Support for non-profit companies children throughout North Texas

The mission of Speedway Children's Charities remains true to the ideals it was founded upon in 1982...

A Brief History

Speedway Children’s Charities

Speedway Children’s Charities was founded by Speedway Motorsports, Inc.’s  O. Bruton Smith, Chairman of the Board, in 1982 after the death of his son. Since 1982, the charity has grown to include chapters at each of the SMI speedways across the country including, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Bristol, TN, Sonoma, CA, Loudon, NH, Fort Worth, TX, Sparta, KY and Las Vegas, NV. 

Since 1997 We Have Distributed More Than

$11.1 Million in Funding

To non-profits in North Texas supporting children in need.

The funds distributed by Speedway Children's Charities are raised through special events held throughout the year. Most of Speedway Children's Charities events are geared around the three major race weeks at Texas Motor Speedway.

Our Reach is Far

Speedway Children’s Charities could fill the grandstands at Texas Motor Speedway 14 times with the number of children we have helped since 1997.  Our reach is far, and the dollars we raise go directly to helping children in our community.
