The Texas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities is working with the American Red Cross to collect monetary and blood donations for those affected by the hurricane.
Monetary donations can be made through the Red Cross website, and physical donations can be made directly to local shelters.
"The devastating effects of Hurricane Laura are wide-reaching so our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone whose lives have been disrupted," Eddie Gossage, President and General Manager of Texas Motor Speedway, said. "We're honored, as always, to be working with the American Red Cross to provide assistance. 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us. Providing a safe place to shelter and regroup for those displaced by the storm is a positive on both an individual basis and for the community as a whole."
