Press Release: Nashville Speedway and Nashville Flea Market Team Up with Sophia's Heart to Help Homeless Families


Nashville, TN –
Got a need for speed?  Sign up to support homeless families this weekend at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds Flea Market as part of the Sophia's Heart "Drive for Five" $5 campaign and get a free ride in racecar #80.

Sophia's Heart officials say, by pledging $5 a month, patrons can make a difference in the lives of children and families staying in their transitional housing program. "The commitment is as little as a value meal at your favorite drive through restaurant.  It's easy, and it counts.  Anyone can do it." says executive director, Clifton Harris.

Patrons who sign up for the "Drive for Five" $5 campaign this weekend will also get to take a spin around the Nashville Speedway race track in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS, weather permitting.  Rides will be available Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

To support the campaign, visit the Sophia's Heart booth  number 140 in the Agriculture building at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds this weekend or visit their website at

This weekend's race track rides to the public are donated by Tony Formosa, of Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.

The Nashville Flea Market is held monthly at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.  For more information about the Flea Market visit
