“Our sole concern at SCC is to help a child in need,” – O. Bruton Smith, Founder of Speedway Children’s Charity

Like cars, helping children, and need something to do this fall?  Great…then we’ve found the perfect thing for you.  Speedway Children’s Charity (SCC) is a non-profit organization that provides funding for hundreds of other non-profit organizations throughout the U.S. whose missions are to help children in need.

Founded by O. Bruton Smith, this unique network design is a big contributor to their success since inception in 1982.  Their vision statement is “that every child has the same opportunities no matter what obstacle they are facing.”

SCC goes beyond traditional fund raising and currently engages with eight different local chapters across the nation:

Atlanta, GA

Bristol, TN

Charlotte, NC


Las Vegas, NV

New Hampshire



These local chapters work with a broad range of people and organizations to identify and resolve local issues children in these respective communities face (e.g. learning disabilities, broken homes, cancer, and more).  In 2016, SCC affiliated charities distributed over $3 million in grants to more than 450 different charitable organizations across the country.  Since 1982, SCC has donated more than $49 million to fund efforts to help millions of children in need.

This fall there is much ado about a lot throughout the chapters…with plenty of variety for people of all interests and ages.  Bristol has an upcoming night race charity event, Sonoma Grand Prix, Atlanta Speedway golf tournament, helicopter rides in New Hampshire, vehicle rides in Kentucky…and much much more.  Check out their website of events for all the details.
