California Speedway Invites Others to Help Spread Good Cheer and Warm Meals This Holiday Season

A $1 Donation will be Made for Every California Speedway Holiday Card Sent Over the Internet in December

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than by sending good cheer to friends and family? How about by sending cheer and giving meals to those in need!

Send a unique holiday e-card from California Speedway's official website and the speedway will donate up to $5,000 to Meals on Wheels. Race fans, media and anyone with access to the internet can participate.

The artwork depicts Santa relaxing by the fireplace and reviewing a "Top 10 wish list" made by California Speedway fans. His elves, along with the California Speedway staff, have checked off the entire list as 2006 was a phenomenal year for fans at the southern California motorsports facility. Subtle images have been drawn into this design, including surfboards, checkered flag slippers on Santa, a California Speedway logo chair, the California Speedway water tower outside the window and the artist's trademark signature on Santa's mug.

This holiday e-card was specially designed by California Speedway Art Department Manager Tony Montano. On top of creating one of a kind artwork for California Speedway's annual holiday cards, he also is in charge of all the signage and painting that takes place at the speedway year-round.

"Creating the California Speedway holiday card has been a holiday tradition for me since 1997," said Montano. "This is the first year my design will be available on-line, opening it up to race fans everywhere. I'm also honored that my design will help spread the holiday spirit and bring meals to those in need."

To send this card, visit www.californiaspeedway.com and click on the link to send a holiday e-card. Once there, type in friend's and family's e-mail addresses, a special note and hit send. There is no limit to how many holiday e-cards that can be sent, and for every e-card sent during the month of December, California Speedway will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels, up to a $5,000 donation.

Recipients of this holiday e-card will also receive a special holiday ticket offer for the Auto Club 500 in February that is only valid through the month of December.
