Challenge Daytona, ‘the first-ever triathlon set to take place at Daytona International Speedway’, has introduced three exclusive race weekend VIP Experiences, in partnership with The NASCAR Foundation. The race organising team adds that these VIP Experiences will ‘provide unprecedented opportunities for all Challenge Daytona athletes, while also supporting The NASCAR Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of children in need.’

“Challenge Family events are community focused, so it’s an absolutely intuitive fit to work together with The NASCAR Foundation in bringing these exclusive opportunities to our athletes,” said Challenge Family CEO Zibi Szlufcik. “We’re confident that the VIP Experiences will draw a great deal of interest, adding to the unique Challenge Daytona race experience and contributing in a meaningful way to the positive work of The NASCAR Foundation.”

Proceeds from Challenge Daytona VIP Experience sales will benefit The NASCAR Foundation. This charitable organization works to improve the lives of children who need it most in NASCAR communities through the Speediatrics Children’s Fund and the Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award. The NASCAR Foundation makes children’s health and medical needs its top priority, ‘driven by the belief that every child should have a chance at a healthy life and deserves to get across the finish line.’
