PHOENIX – In the spirit of giving back in the community, ISM Raceway and The NASCAR Foundation teamed up for the second-annual Operation Speedy Bear Brigade. With today designated as Giving Tuesday, track employees, along with NASCAR K&N Pro Series West and NASCAR Whelen All-American Super Late Model Series driver Cassie Gannis, delivered The NASCAR Foundation’s Speedy Bears to children at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center.

“We’re honored to team up with The NASCAR Foundation in this year’s Operation Speedy Bear Brigade,” said Julie Giese, president of ISM Raceway. “It is important to us at ISM Raceway to give back to our community and to support those that need it the most. Many of these children are facing difficult challenges in their daily lives and being able to bring them joy and brighten their day during the holiday season is something of which we are proud to be a part.”

In addition to ISM Raceway’s efforts at Banner Thunderbird, Operation Speedy Bear Brigade is taking place in 23 other locations across the country on Giving Tuesday, including participation from several NASCAR office and track locations.

“The Speedy Bear Brigade truly demonstrates the generosity of NASCAR Nation,” The NASCAR Foundation Executive Director Nichole Krieger said. “The bears we are providing put smiles on the faces of so many children in the hospital and will hopefully ease some of the pain that they may be going through.”

This effort is organized through The NASCAR Foundation’s Speediatrics Children’s Fund, which supports needs expressed by hospitals, specialty clinics, camps and others providing children’s medical and health care services.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
