DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Race fans produced record results during the fifth annual 9-11 Blood and Marrow Drive held last Saturday, Sept. 11 at historic Daytona International Speedway.

The Drive, which was staged at the Daytona 500 Club just outside Gatorade Victory Lane in the infield of the Daytona International Speedway, produced a 34% increase in units of blood collected from the previous year’s drive at the “World Center of Racing.”

The event generated 610 registered donors, 634 units of blood and 65 bone marrow registrations.

Blood donations were received by Florida’s Blood Centers and marrow registrations were handled by Kids Beating Cancer Bone Marrow Registry.

Every guest who donated received a ticket to next July’s Subway Jalapeno 250 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series race, a gift bag, free commemorative T-shirt and discount admission to Daytona 500 Experience, “The Official Attraction of NASCAR.”
For donors who scheduled an appointment in advance, they were entered to win a commemorative portion of Daytona’s original asphalt.
