The southern US is preparing to be pummeled by the second massive Hurricane is as many weeks. While the path of Hurricane Irma is still uncertain, many Floridians are evacuating in advance of the powerful storm’s landfall.
The NASCAR community has been stepping up big time. First, by donating to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, and now by opening their doors to evacuees.
NBCSports is reporting that both Atlanta Motor Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway have opened up their facilities to those trying to escape the storms. The camping facilities include hot showers and restrooms as well as water hookups for RVs.
“Our track is committed to helping our friends in Florida and the surrounding states during this time of need,” Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch said. “We hope to provide a sense of relief by offering a place to stay for no charge for evacuees during this time of adversity. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the path of the storm.”
These services will be free at both tracks.
