Tri-City announces 2019 blood drive partnership openings

AUBURN, Mich.– Tri-City Motor Speedway is partnering with area businesses and non-profit groups hosting blood drives with the American Red Cross or Michigan Blood to help increase do­nor participation during the summer months.

Tri-City officials are seeking local blood drives held during May, June or July throughout the surround­ing communities including, but not limited to Auburn, Bay City, Beaverton, Gladwin, Mid­land, Mt. Pleasant, Pinconning and Saginaw.  

Each participating blood drive will receive one adult grandstand race ticket valued at $14 to give out to all donors who attempt to give blood. Race tickets will be valid for any regular Friday night through Aug. 23, 2019. 

In addition to partnering with area blood drives, Tri-City will host a blood drive on June 7.

“We want to give back to our community. Blood banks are in desperate need of donations during the summer months. We want to use our means to help promote and support blood donation through­out our surrounding communities,” said Erika Puvalowski, TCMS Marketing and Business Development Director. 

Those hosting blood drives can contact Puvalowski at 989 316-6804 or download the participa­tion form at
