On February 17th, following NASCAR’s season start with the DAYTONA 500, The NASCAR Foundation, Joey Logano Foundation, ONE DAYTONA and Daytona International Speedway partnered with Convoy of Hope to distribute 35,000 pounds of food, water and supplies to approximately 1,000 families in the Daytona Beach area.
The contactless event took place beginning at 3:30 p.m. in ONE DAYTONA’s northwest parking lot where nearly
1,000 families participated in the drive-thru distribution in a safe, socially-distanced manner. Each family
received four bags of food and supplies, along with a case of Dasani water donated by Coca-Cola.
“Our Foundation’s mission is giving back to children and young adults in times of need and with the pandemic,
we see an immediate need,” stated Joey Logano, NASCAR Cup Series star. “We are thankful
we can continue to race and visit the communities on our NASCAR schedule, but we recognize that with limited
fans attending our events, we aren’t making the same economic impact in these markets. By partnering with
The NASCAR Foundation at the season start, we are able to make an immediate impact for a lot of folks in
Daytona Beach. That’s what it’s all about.”
This is the fifth event that The NASCAR Foundation and Joey Logano Foundation have completed partnering
with Convoy of Hope, providing a total of $175,000 in support to these racing communities. Previous events
were held in 2020 at Darlington Raceway, Martinsville Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway and Phoenix
“We are proud to host this food distribution event immediately following the DAYTONA 500,” said Nichole Krieger, Executive Director, The NASCAR Foundation. “We have been a proud partner alongside the Joey Logano Foundation and Convoy of Hope since the pandemic began to bring more than 180,000 pounds of food and supplies to 4,000 families in our racing communities in need. We couldn’t be happier to work with ONE DAYTONA and Daytona International Speedway to reach the local community right here in our hometown of Daytona Beach.”
