Who We Are
Lucky Dog Speedway Charities is dedicated to providing aid to children and their families when a medical crisis strikes. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity, partly funded by monies paid by Michigan International Speedway for our volunteers who serve as ushers in the grandstands and provide security in the pit road, Terrace Suites, and the Champions Club areas. All funds collected, less expenses, go directly to children and their families within the Michiana area and northern Ohio.
What We Do
Serving Southern Michigan, Northern Indiana, and Northern Ohio, Lucky Dog Speedway Charities (LDSC) raises funds which are then distributed in various ways to help families in need during a medical crisis, whether it be on a temporary or ongoing basis, in various ways, i.e. by providing gas cards to families when children must travel often to hospitals and other medical facilities for treatment, financial aid for essential services caused by the medical crisis, wheelchair ramps or other necessary equipment needed to aid normal function, as well as other special family requests.
How to Help
Our volunteers work race weekends at the Michigan International Speedway, and have created and planned LDSC fundraisers in their local communities. We also donate money and time to other programs such as the Salvation Army’s Toys for Tots, local Thanksgiving dinner meals and local Shop with a Cop programs. We invite you to get involved – there is a place for you at Lucky Dog Speedway Charities!
