Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host four Red Cross blood drives beginning Friday at the media center in the track infield from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. to help offset a blood supply shortage during the coronavirus pandemic. Other drives will be April 2, April 7 and April 11, also from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Our community has both a lack of donated blood as well as facilities to collect blood,” LVMS general manager Chris Powell said in a statement. “Our facility gives the Red Cross a donation center in the northeast part of the valley that is spacious enough to accommodate the social distancing guidelines set forth by local, state and federal governments.”
