Tire Rack One Lap of America to Raise Funds for Charity

(Akron/Tire Review) The 23rd annual 2006 Tire Rack One Lap of America, running from May 6-13, will kick off at The Tire Rack's U.S. headquarters in South Bend, Ind.

The driving event challenges its 200 entrants to drive 3,974 miles in just eight days, stopping at nine famous race tracks, from the Great Lakes to the Georgia coast. In addition, the race will raise money for at least 17 charitable organizations.

One Lap involves nearly every kind of vehicle, from luxury sedans to economy cars and from high-end sports cars to custom hot rods.  
 
Official event charities include the Transplant Recipients International Organization, Inc., which provides transplant recipients and their families with support, education and awareness and Street Survival Teen Driving Safety Schools, which provides teenagers with “hands-on” driving experience. 
 
Other charities benefiting from this year’s One Lap include the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, American Cancer Society, Victory Junction Gang Camp, Bowery Mission, Racing for the Children, the Humane Society of the United States, Deputy Shad Bassett Memorial Fund, among others.
 
As in previous years, entrants face the additional challenge of finishing the race on the same tires on which they started without wearing their treads below 2/32-inch.
 
All tires must be street-legal and selected from a group of manufacturers that includes Goodyear, Firestone, Dunlop, Bridgestone, BF Goodrich, Pirelli, Michelin, Continental, Kumho and Yokohama.
