“Lefty’s Reading Challenge was terrific! It brought our community together as we worked toward a common goal of earning a pizza party and tickets to the race. On race day it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces from our school. Thank you Auto Club Speedway for this outstanding program!"
“Two of my students who hadn’t read one book since the beginning of the year stepped up their game and met their Lefty’s Reading Challenge! After that, they seemed to enjoy reading a book.”
- Terry C., Teacher
“Lefty’s Reading Challenge has motivated even our most reluctant readers. Students are excited and inspired to complete their reading logs. On race day I saw so many of our students proud to let everyone know what they were there because they read enough books!”

“I’ve been a school librarian for over 20 years and have never been part of such a great promotion for reading and for NASCAR!”
