Make a Call for Charity


“Thanks for calling the NASCAR Day telethon. This is Brian Vickers. How can I help you?”

Fans will have a chance to speak to their favorite drivers — Brian and teammate AJ Allmendinger included — as some of NASCAR’s biggest names help answer phones during the first NASCAR Day telethon on Friday.

By calling 1-888-May16th (1-888-629-1684) and making a donation, fans will be helping the 30-plus driver, team and track charities that the NASCAR Foundation supports. Mention Brian or AJ, and 100 percent of your donation will go directly to their designated charity. Last year, NASCAR Day raised more than $1.3 million.

The telethon will run all day from the Sam Bass Gallery in Concord, N.C. SIRIUS Satellite Radio will go live from the event starting at 7 a.m. ET, and Speed TV will do live cut-ins throughout the day.

AJ will answer phones from 9-10 a.m.; Brian from 3-3:40 p.m.

Last year it was online around the beginning of July so I'm figuring it will be about the same time this year.
