I was taken to a NASCAR Race in July 2015, and it was great. I got to meet drivers like Ben Rhodes and Kyle Petty. I also got to go into the infield and participate in activities they had there, like some games and rides. we also got great seats. We also got to drive around the stadium and look around, and got to drive inside the infield (which isn't always allowed). Going to a race with Asphalt Angels opens up a lot of doors that you wouldn't experience otherwise. I went back to Kentucky with my family in July 2016, and I got to speak with Ben Rhodes again, and he remembered me from the year before, so it is a great feeling to make that kind of connection with a driver, or really any athlete of one of your favorite sports. I recommend Asphalt Angels to anyone with a kid who may not get to experience this kind of thing otherwise.

They took us to a race in Kentucky, we got the full experience and had a great time meeting drivers and seeing the cars. I'm sure a lot of time and money went into the planning of this trip.

Asphalt Angles had six other families with planty of actives and infield tours. Everyone got one on one time and to meet Ben Rhodes and his family. Ben is the driver of the 88 car and took time to autograph shirts and take photos with all the children. Thank you Alexander Kozlowski and Asphalt Angles for orchestrating the great experience.

I am the Founder of Speedway Angels. I feel blessed when I have the opportunity to enjoy events with families. I would love nothing more than to be able to afford to put on events every weekend. Presently due to being self funded I have to limit events and also limit participant numbers. Presently I am able to put on 2-3 events a year. I have also put together a Stop Bullying Campaign I would love the opportunity to utilize at schools to educate school aged kids Nationwide on the ever growing issue of Bullying. Thanks for taking the time to review Speedway Angels

The joy of taking children and their families to the races is something I cherish. Watching each and everyone enjoying opportunities they may or may not take on themselves and giving that to them makes all the effort worth it all. The support from everyone makes this possible.

At Daytona this year my Son and I got to experience an event with AL and Speedway Angels. AL made us feel like we were the most important people at the Race. We got to see things and do things we most likely would have never been able to do. Thanks Al

Unfortunately I was unable to personally experience this race with your family due to a unexpected death in my immediate family. I look forward to attending another event with you in the near future

I took my son to the Kentucky Speedway in October 2015. He loves everything about racing and automobilia. There was a car show, autographs, and of course the race. We had a blast! And it was all thanks to Speedway Angels! What a great group! We made new friends and have people to share our joys and heartaches with.

Thanks to Speedway Angels for providing a "family memory" for us at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Our lives are filled with Drs, Hospitals and medical days so a day with none of that was PRICELESS!! Our daughter was treated like a Princess from the moment she arrived....."Thank you" doesn't begin to cover what was done for her and for us!!

She is a Princess and Deserves to be treated as such, I cannot commend you enough for the activities you do with her every chance you get. You deserve an award for not allowing her disabilities to prevent her from living life to the fullest. Thank you so much for allowing me to experience the race with her I will forever be greatful

Our sons David and Joshua got to attend a race at Charlotte Motor Speedway "Thanks" to Speedway Angels . It was a wonderful day for them and so exciting for us to see their dreams come true. They have watched NASCAR Races every week with their daddy forever. But nothing compares to seeing it in person.

Our special needs child was recently invited to spend the day with Asphalt Angels at the Kentucky Speedway and it was truly a day to remember. The organization went above and beyond to make our child feel special. We got to enjoy a behind the scenes tour, a personal meet and greet with the drivers, and VIP seats. The look of pure joy on our child's face is something I won't soon forget. As a family, we would never have been able to have this amazing experience without the help of Asphalt Angels and their generous supporters! Thank you so much from the Corwin family!

I went to the Kentucky speedway this year with Asphalt Angels and seen the joy on all the kids faces. These families and the kids had great time. A real up and close experience with drivers and the track. If you have a child with special needs get them entered for one of the events at a track near you. If your one of the more fortunate this an honest to goodness cause to donate to.
