NASCAR Specialty License Plate Now Available
The NASCAR Foundation, in partnership with the Florida Sports Foundation (FSF), has announced a new NASCAR-themed, official Florida license plate that will be available to fans for purchase this week at Daytona International Speedway.

Net proceeds from the sale of the specialty plate will benefit The NASCAR Foundation and the Florida Sports Foundation.

“We are happy to partner with the Florida Sports Foundation and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to be able to offer our fans this specialty plate,” said Sandy Marshall, executive director of The NASCAR Foundation. “This is a great opportunity for fans to show their love of the sport, while at the same time contributing to two organizations that do a lot of good work in the state of Florida.”

The Florida Sports Foundation is the official sports promotion and development organization of the state of Florida. The Foundation’s mission is to promote and develop professional, amateur and participatory sports for the citizens of Florida.

The FSF will distribute proceeds to support the marketing of motorsports-related tourism in the state and 50% to support The NASCAR Foundation's charitable organizations. Last year alone, The NASCAR Foundation donated more than $400,000 to Florida based charities.

The FSF will also be distributing the proceeds from the NASCAR plate to support its regional grant program, which is designed to assist communities and host organizations in attracting sporting events that generate out-of-state economic impact for the state of Florida.

“NASCAR and auto racing annually bring thousands of visitors and millions of dollars in economic impact to the state of Florida,” said Larry Pendleton, president and CEO of the Florida Sports Foundation. “We are happy to be working with NASCAR to assist these programs and to give racing fans another way to support their favorite sport by purchasing a NASCAR license plate.”

This weekend, Florida residents traveling to Daytona International Speedway can pick up their plate at a mobile FLOW (Florida Licensing On Wheels) unit stationed at the track. The units are equipped with the technology and ability to bring valuable DHSMV services right to the customers, including the ability to issue specialty plates on the spot. The units will be parked in the Display Midway outside Turn 4 from Feb. 14-17.

To purchase a NASCAR specialty plate, fans must prove that they have a vehicle registered in the state f Florida, a valid Florida driver’s license and proof of insurance. The annual specialty license plate is $27.

Residents not traveling to the track this weekend may still purchase a NASCAR specialty plate at their local Department of Motor Vehicles. For more information, please visit www.hsmv.state.fl.us.
