It was established in honor of racer Jason Leffler, who lost his life in a sprint car accident this year. All monies in the trust go directly to help the needs of Jason’s young son, Charlie Dean Leffler.
Two PRI apparel stores will be located in the Indiana Convention Center.
Presented by KECO Coatings, the event will raise money for the Indiana Children's Wish Fund and Racing for Corey, which are both 501(c)3 not-for-profit organizations. It will include live music and a live auction, and starts at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 12.
The benefit will take place at Bartini's nightclub in Union Station, 39 W. Jackson Place, Indianapolis.
The 2014 season will see 14 nights of action-packed Whelen All-American NASCAR racing punctuated by three wild and crazy nights when the emphasis will be more on the lighter side of motorsports.
