Parade & Hot HPDE Lap Fundraising

Supporting Our Community’s Children

Fueled by motorsports enthusiasm and a charitable engine, Houston’s car club and racing communities came together to raise funds and awareness to address child abuse in Harris and surrounding counties.

The 2nd annual “Drive For Kids” event, title sponsored by Lupe Tortilla in partnership with MSR Houston Charities 501(c)(3) hosted and offered registration for up to 400 cars to participate in charitable fundraising parade laps, a VIP car exhibition and the opportunity to gather with sponsor vendors, Houston area celebrities and fellow motorsports enthusiasts in support of two local children’s charities: Child Advocates and Arms Wide Adoption Services. Each of these charities shared the proceeds from this event to support their ongoing missions.

Ways to Support

Parade & Hot HPDE Lap Fundraising

Join us by exhibiting your car at MSRH and also driving parade laps in the morning session.

Help us fundraise by having your friends, family and coworkers sponsor you; and if you raise $500 or more and you can earn hot lap session access in the afternoon and win an award at the same time! Use our online registration process and tool to notify your sponsors about the event and your need for their support!
