Take A Walk With Wendy In Dover
Here is the media release on behalf or the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports (WAM) about an event involving SPEED's Wendy Venturini this weekend:
Wendy Venturini, a reporter on Speed Channel’s NASCAR Raceday and a member of the WAM Board of Directors, will join NASCAR fans at Dover International Speedway on Saturday, May 31 for The NASCAR Foundation Track Walk.
Walk around the famous Monster Mile to raise funds for the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports and other members of The NASCAR Foundation Family of Charities.
Wendy says, “This is my third year being involved in the NASCAR Track Walks on behalf of the NASCAR Foundation. As a board member for WAM, I have so much pride representing WAM and our charitable causes. What a great way to help others in need! I hope race fans and industry insiders come join me and TEAM WAM as we take a lap around Dover this Saturday.”
The NASCAR Foundation Track Walks give fans the unique opportunity to walk a lap around some of the most famous race tracks in NASCAR. Not only do walkers experience the track from a different perspective and enjoy the sights and sounds from the racing surface, they also benefit very worthy causes through fundraising.
A NASCAR Foundation Track Walk is a great event for friends and family members looking for entertainment at the track between race activities. Event participants will enjoy a kick-off celebration prior to entering the track for their one lap trek. Get your group together today and get on track for charity.
Track Walk participants also have the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the charitable causes supported by The NASCAR Foundation Track Walks—including the Women’s Auxiliary of Motorsports--by using the NASCAR Foundation’s online fundraising tools and other fundraising resources. Fans can earn prizes based on the amount of donations they raise. Wendy will also have some of her own prizes on hand for members of TEAM WAM!
