Test drive a Ford at Michigan International Speedway and support MIS Cares

BROOKLYN, Mich. (Sept. 8, 2014) – Brooklyn Ford is providing a great opportunity to test drive a new vehicle at Michigan International Speedway as part of the Drive 4 UR Community program.
And you just might find your next car, all while supporting MIS Cares.
From 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16, MIS welcomes back Drive 4 UR Community sponsored by Ford Motor Company. MIS and Brooklyn Ford have teamed up to present would-be new car owners an opportunity to drive a brand new Ford vehicle around the interior road course.
It’s a great opportunity to test drive a new car, learn more about the latest technology in auto manufacturing and see what vehicle matches your needs.
Brooklyn Ford, located on M-50, will provide all of the latest vehicles on-site and will offer guests the opportunity to test-drive them.
For every family who test drives a vehicle, MIS Cares will receive $20 from Ford Motor Company.
“While everyone wins with the Drive 4 UR Community program, MIS Cares is the biggest winner, thanks to the support of Ford Motor Company,” Jayme Bicknell, fan services manager for MIS, said.
Guests should use the entrance off Brooklyn Highway and proceed to the Michigan Room located in the Infield Suites Building. The infield can be accessed via the vehicle/pedestrian tunnel under Turn 1. Each participant will be required to sign a liability waiver and must be 18 years old with a valid driver’s license.
Ford Motor Company and its dealers launched a program called Drive 4 UR Community, designed to help raise funding for local community groups and nonprofit organizations. For each Drive 4 UR Community event, Ford dealers will team up with a local nonprofit organization to schedule a test drive fundraising event. The dealers will provide the cars to be test-driven and work together with the nonprofit groups to organize and publicize the event. For every valid test drive completed per family, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating nonprofit or community group, up to a maximum of $6,000.
MIS focuses on charity through the program MIS Cares. In 2013, MIS and its sister company Americrown combined to donate a total of $606,469 to local service groups and organizations through cash donations, work programs, grants and sponsorships, as well as tickets and merchandise that clubs raffle to raise money. MIS Cares awarded $76,469 in cash donations to local charities through its grant program. Another $60,000 was awarded through sponsorships and tickets those groups raffle off, also to raise money.
MIS Cares is a donor advised fund of the NASCAR Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity. MIS Cares’ mission is to create a lasting, positive impact on our community through charitable giving and volunteer efforts that cultivate community growth and advances quality of life.
Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is NASCAR’s fastest track and the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie.
