WeatherTech Raceway at Laguna Seca is looking for participants to donate blood. Monterey County is struggling with a low supply of available blood, and WeatherTech Raceway looks to bolster the supply. The Natividad Medical Center, located at the raceway, will be the location for upcoming blood drives. The September blood drive dates are:

This summer has been particularly difficult for blood donations. Summer is usually slow for donors, and paired with COVID-19, has presented a mighty challenge.

The usual daily $5 entry fee for the Laguna Seca Recreation Area will be waived for donors. In exchange for their donation, every participant will receive a Friday Hyundai Monterey Sports Car Championship general admission/paddock ticket. If this year’s race is held spectator-less, the ticket will be valid for the 2021 race. How cool is that?

A free COVID-19 FDA approved antibody test will also be offered to donors if desired. Advance appointments are encouraged to help maintain social distancing. All staff and donors will be required to wear a mask at blood drives or donation centers.

If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms such as dry cough, extreme fatigue, fever or shortness of breath, please refrain from participating.  

The drives have very limited availability, so sign up quickly! Click here for Friday, September 18, and click here for Saturday, September 19. To participate in any of the Blood Drives, please visit BLOOD4LIFE.ORG or call 877-25-VITAL (877-258-4825) or 805-542-8500.
