The Laurens County Shrine Club is conducting its 38th Annual Shrine Stock Car Race on Tuesday night, June 11, at Laurens County Speedway, located at 435 Racetrack Road in Laurens.

The pit gates open at 4 p.m. and the grandstands will open at 6. Pit admission is $35 for ages 12 and up and grandstand admission is $20 for ages 12 and up. Children 11 and under are admitted free. This is an annual benefit race sponsored by the Laurens County Shrine Club to benefit Shriner's Hospitals.

With the help, prayers, and support of the community, local Shriners can continue to aid the Shriner’s Hospitals and their commitment to providing the best care for children in the specialty areas of orthopedics, burn care, spinal-cord injury and cleft lip and palate, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

There are countless testimonies of children right here in Laurens County and the Upstate of South Carolina that Shriner’s Hospital has provided excellent medical care, and in doing so, dramatically improved their quality of life.
