In The Community

Pacific Raceways donates race tickets to non-profit groups to support our community.

Our community has supported Pacific Raceways, a family owned and operated multi-surface racing facility, throughout our 60 years. We want to give back!

Pacific Raceways is pleased to be able to donate NHRA National Drag Race Tickets and Lucas Oil Drag Race tickets as our way of giving back to the community.

Pacific Raceways also welcomes multiple nonprofit and charity events each calendar year.  One of our largest and longest running events, the Pacific Northwest Historics is produced in conjunction between the SOVREN Race Club and the SOVREN Guild, and benefits Seattle Children’s Hospital.  We also work with several local charities and organizations through volunteer opportunities, and ticket giveaways.

Pacific Raceways gives back to our community every year with donations and sponsor events.

Application Responses

Due to the large number of asks received, not all donation requests will be able to be fulfilled.  Likewise, not all donation requests will receive a response.  Approved requests will receive notice of their donation.  Donations will be mailed only to the organization’s address, or arrangements can be made to pick up donations at the administrative offices at Pacific Raceways.
