LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host four Red Cross blood drives on March 27, April 2, April 7 and April 11.

The drives will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on those dates in the Thrive Hive Digital Center in the speedway infield.

“Our community has both a lack of donated blood as well as facilities to collect blood,” LVMS Genera Manager Chris Powell said. “Our facility gives the Red Cross a donation center in the northeast part of the valley that is spacious enough to accommodate the social distancing guidelines set forth by local, state and federal governments.”
