Because of his work with Speedway Children’s Charities, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch was recently honored with the Major General Thomas Sadler Award in the Speedway Club Grand Ballroom at Texas Motor Speedway.
His Kurt Busch Celebrity Bowling Tournament and Busch-whacked Mud Run have raced more than $40,000 for the Texas chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities. Busch charitable work also includes helping the Victory Junction Gang Camp, Special Olympics and the Armed Forces Foundation.
“To receive this humanitarian award named after Major General Thomas Sadler, an American hero who flew more than 400 combat missions during his military career is quite an honor,” Busch said. “Helping children and members of the military and their families is very important to me and that’s why this award is so special. I want to thank the Texas Motor Speedway staff, led by Eddie Gossage, for its outstanding work with Speedway Children’s Charities.”
