Do you have any plans this up and coming weekend? How would you like to be part of something special this coming Saturday, Dec. 5th?

Michigan International Speedway will be hosting their 12th annual Track and Toy Drive this weekend.

According to WILX, guests will have the opportunity to give and make dreams come true as the track hosts its annual MIS Cares Charity Track and Toy Drive.

This fun event will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. this Saturday.

All you have to do is donate a non-perishable food item or a new unwrapped toy. Then you get to take five laps around the 2 mile track in your own vehicle. How cool is this!

All food items will be donated to the St. Mary's Good Counsel in Adrian. The toys will be donated to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots in both Jackson and Lenawee Counties.

This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to pitch in and donate food or a new unwrapped toy so that we can brighten up someone's holiday season this year.

It also gives someone the rare opportunity to drive their own vehicle around the track that has been the site of many moments in motorsports.

We all know that these are challenging times, but there is always a need to step up during the holiday season just to help those who are less fortunate.

If you plan on going this Saturday, participants should enter the Speedway through the U.S. Highway 12 entrance and follow the signs to the drop off area. (WILX)

After the donation has been dropped off, you will be directed to enter the racetrack, where you will take five laps at highway speeds around the two mile track.

I'm not even sure if highway speeds are fast enough for me, but just getting the chance to drive on the racetrack is worth it. Have fun and Happy Holidays! (WILX)
