  • NASCAR fans packed more than 4,000 meals on Sept. 30 at Dover International Speedway as part of a Chase-sponsored event for seniors in need.
    The first 300 fans to visit the Chase tent and pack a box full of cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, crackers, pancake mix and other household staples received a free pass to a Jeff Gordon question and answer session. The boxes were delivered to the Food Bank of Delaware for distribution.
    According to statistics from AARP's Drive to End Hunger, one in 20 Delaware seniors struggles with hunger. Many are forced to make difficult decisions like purchase food or medications.
