In 1982, O. Bruton Smith founded Speedway Children's Charities with a single mission - to help children in need. For more than three decades, SCC chapters have fulfilled Smith's vision, raising and investing $43 million to improve the quality of life for more than 13 million children nationwide.

In 2014, the Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities raised and distributed over $400,000 to over 54 supporting organizations serving the greater Charlotte region's children in need.
