DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. The 56th annual DRIVE4COPD300 is the season-opening event for the NASCAR® Nationwide Series. The race takes place during NASCAR®’s biggest weekend on the day before the Daytona 500, and will feature the rising stars of the NASCAR® Nationwide Series. The DRIVE4COPD300 is considered the most prestigious event on the Nationwide Series calendar. Tony Stewart is the defending race winner from 2013.

NASCAR® is an invaluable partner supporting DRIVE4COPD’s mission to drive awareness of COPD - a disease that takes one life every four minutes in the U.S. As the official health initiative NASCAR®, DRIVE4COPD educates race fans across the country on the signs and symptoms of COPD, and encourages them to be screened to determine their risk. An estimated 24 million Americans live with COPD, and the campaign aims to diagnose the “missing millions” living with the disease.

The DRIVE4COPD300 race will air on ESPN at 1:15 pm ET.
