The World Tour of heads to the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 24 with a real sense of purpose: contributing to LIVESTRONG. Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong and based in Austin, Texas, LIVESTRONG fights for the 28 million people around the world living with cancer today. LIVESTRONG connects individuals to the support they need, leverages funding and resources to spur innovation and engages communities and leaders to drive social change. Known for the iconic yellow wristband, LIVESTRONG’s mission is to inspire and empower anyone affected by cancer. iRacing will contribute five cents to LIVESTRONG for every lap completed by each driver entered in the Brickyard 400 Benefiting LIVESTRONG. iRacing members are also encouraged to visit the LiveSTRONG web site to sign for a pledge account for the event.

The 160 lap Brickyard 400 Benefiting LIVESTRONG is scheduled for Saturday, July 24 at 8:30 pm ET (00:30 GMT on Sunday, July 25) and will consist of splits of 34 cars each with every driver allowed one tow/reset following an incident. Race grids will be determined by qualifying time based on the fastest of two qualifying laps, with qualifying sessions beginning on Saturday, July 17 at 8:00 PM (00:00 GMT on Sunday, July 18).

Five $100 NASCAR SuperStore Gift Cards and one NASCAR Racing Experience will be awarded to the top fund raisers, and each spit winner will receive $10 in iRacing credits.
