DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Race fans produced record results during the recent sixth annual 9-11 Blood and Marrow Drive held Saturday, Sept. 10 at historic Daytona International Speedway.
In partnership with Florida’s Blood Centers, the year’s blood drive, which marked the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11, was staged at the Daytona 500 Club in the infield of the Daytona International Speedway.
The 12-hour blood drive generated 1,064 registered donors and 829 units of blood – a 30% increase. Since the event’s inception, growth in donor participation has increased every year.
Each guest who donated received a ticket to the 2012 Subway Jalapeno 250 Powered By Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series race and a free commemorative T-shirt.
With the continued success of the blood drive, all donors were also entered to win two Daytona 500 Club ticket packages for the 2012 Daytona 500 and two Daytona 500 Club packages for the 2012 Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola.
In addition, all donors who scheduled an appointment in advance were entered to win one of six commemorative plagues containing a portion of Daytona’s original asphalt.
