The Hendrick Marrow Program, the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), the NASCAR Foundation and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation have teamed up for the annual NASCAR Foundation Blood and Marrow Drive—providing you with an opportunity to register for free as a potential bone marrow donor.

On September 11, you can visit one of 30 participating race tracks to donate blood and register as a bone marrow donor; some tracks also feature other incentives, like food, t-shirts, and even the opportunity to drive around the track in your own car. (Note that four tracks are holding their events on September 12, September 13, September 21 and December 2.)

If you can't get out to a race track (or, like me, you're just not a racing fan) you can still register as a donor for free online until September 22. Either way, it's time to start your engines.
