There are a number of race tracks down South that have opened up their facilities to help those impacted by Hurricane Irma.  In an effort to keep information available in a static location for those in need, we are starting a rolling list of tracks that evacuees can contact and head to.  This list will grow and be updated as more resources come in.  Many race tracks have 100’s of acres of property.  If you are in the path of the storm, please leave before it is too late.

If you know of more tracks that are opening their facilities to offer assistance please contact us or comment below so that we can update this list.  Thank you.
