BC's DREAMS COMING TRUE
After competing in the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, Bryan Clauson set out to merge his two worlds of IndyCar and midget racing into one main event for race fans. The event: a dirt track race at the home of the greatest spectacle in racing – the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
We are thrilled to announce our title sponsorship of the inaugural Driven2SaveLives BC 39 Midget Race Presented by NOS Energy Drink. The event will take place on Thursday, September 6 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway leading into the Brickyard 400 weekend.
Dirt track fans across the country have embraced donation and transplantation since Driven2SaveLives expanded into dirt track racing in January 2017 to honor Bryan Clauson.
Clauson, a versatile and beloved driver best known for his talent and achievements in dirt track open-wheel racing, died in August 2016 following a race accident. As a registered donor, he went on to save five lives as an organ donor and continues to heal the lives of countless others as a tissue donor.
Driven2SaveLives aims to educate race fans on donation and to encourage them to register their donation decisions through the campaign.
Race fans can easily register at Driven2SaveLives.org.
