NASCAR To Go "On Track For Charity" Benefiting Victory Junction Gang Camp and Speedway Children's Charities

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 1, 2004) -- The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) announced today the "On Track for Charity" Fun Walk, to be held Oct. 16 at Lowe's Motor Speedway, prior to the start of the UAW-GM Quality 500. NASCAR fans will have the opportunity to walk the 1.5 mile oval track with drivers such as Richard and Kyle Petty and Jeff Green with proceeds benefiting the Victory Junction Gang Camp and Speedway Children's Charities.

Registration for the event is available online at www.speedwaycharities.org until Oct. 15. For a $20 donation, fans will be able to participate in the event and will receive an event t-shirt. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult and can participate for free. Fans can also register at Lowe's Motor Speedway on Oct. 15 at the Hospitality Village, and Oct. 16 at Gate 26 for $25.

Together with Goody's Headache Powders, the Official Pain Reliever of NASCAR and the primary sponsor of the "On Track for Charity" Fun Walk, NASCAR is continuing its support for Victory Junction Gang Camp and Speedway Children's Charities. The Victory Junction Gang Camp, a non-profit organization founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty in honor of their late son Adam, provides race-themed camp experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses. Speedway Children's Charities aids children in need of medical, educational or social services by supporting non-profit charities that provide those services.

"Goody's is proud to sponsor "On Track for Charity" to help many children in need," said Darren Singer, vice president of marketing for GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare. "Goody's is well-known for its speed in providing pain relief, but our company is also proud of its generous charitable contributions. Last year, Goody's donated $1 million to Victory Junction Gang Camp and this year we are committed to continuing our support for Victory Junction and extending it to Speedway Children's Charities."
