When NASCAR Sprint Cup star Tony Stewart held his "Smoke Show" fantasy racing camp at Texas Motor Speedway last year, it raised a single-day record $262,000 for the Speedway Children's Charities-Texas Chapter.
Stewart was so excited about the amount that he decided to aim for twice that amount this year. Instead of a one-day camp, the event will be two days and is scheduled for Aug. 4-5. Fans will be able to select either day for their racing experience, which includes pre-race ceremonies, driving Team Texas stock cars, riding with Stewart in his No. 14 Chevy and a Victory Lane celebration. The camp also includes a dinner and auction with Stewart on Aug. 4. Prices for the camp have not been set. Check back at the SCC Texas web site or www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
