Third Annual N.J. Motorsports Park Red Cross Blood Drive is Saturday, July 21
MILLVILLE, N.J. — New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), located at 8000 Dividing Creek Road in Millville, has teamed-up for the third year in a row with the American Red Cross for the annual special event blood drive to raise awareness about the critical need for donating blood during the summer months.
This year’s blood drive is scheduled for Saturday, July 21, at the Officers Club on Thunderbolt Raceway from 7am-3pm, and all donors will receive a three-day event ticket for the AMA Pro Road Racing event (value of over $65 each), presented by the American Red Cross and taking place Sept. 7-9 at NJMP.
AMA Pro Road Racing is the premier motorcycle road racing series in North America and is universally regarded as one of the most competitive road racing organizations in the world. The Series is comprised of four production-based classes: AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike, AMA Pro Daytona SportBike, AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport and the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series. The weekend will also offer Track Walk with Pro AMA Riders, parade laps, Monster Truck rides, a battle of the bands, a bikini contest, a food-eating contests and much more! And, as with most events that take place at NJMP, children age 12 years and younger enter free.
“We thank race fans for helping to save lives in the community, and hope to turn many more into life-saving blood donors,” says Anthony C. Tornetta, communications manager for the American Red Cross Penn Jersey Region. “The upcoming blood drive on July 21st is vitally important to build a supply of blood that will help safeguard against a summer blood shortage.”
“We’re very proud to once again partner with the American Red Cross and host the blood drive at NJMP,” says Brad Scott, NJMP general manager. “We know the community embraces this event each year and we welcome everyone back to participate again for 2012,” .
