FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NWMotiv teams with SpeedFactory Racing for charity Winter Toy Drive to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital and also announces 2016 event schedule with Pacific Raceways

The 4th annual toy drive is potentially NWMotiv largest and most successful yet

AUBURN, Wash., October 4, 2015 – Continuing with its annual tradition of winter charity events, NWMotiv teams with SpeedFactory Racing in Tacoma, WA to host its Winter Toy Drive and Meet on December 19, 2015. This will be the first year the event is hosted at SpeedFactory Racing, and also the first year that all toys and donations will directly benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. As pillars in the Pacific Northwest car enthusiast community, both NWMotiv and SpeedFactory Racing hope to break each of the previous year’s numbers for donations, and already expect over 700 attendees for the event. Unwrapped toys, gifts, or donations will be accepted throughout the duration of the event at SpeedFactory Racing, and also at various drop-off locations in the Puget Sound area. All items will then be delivered to Seattle Children’s on Monday, December 21st. Previous Winter Toy Drives have featured some of the Pacific Northwest’s highest quality tuner, show, and race cars, helping promote the sense of community among local car enthusiasts.

Capitalizing on this sense of community, NWMotiv also announced its 2016 event schedule, with three large car enthusiast events co-hosted by Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA. The first of the three events is the return of HondaFestNW on April 10, 2016, which in 2015 brought in over 5000 attendees and 1000 cars. A month later on May 22, 2016 is the debut of TSL Day, a brand new Toyota, Scion, and Lexus enthusiast event. Finally on June 18, 2016 is DriveNW, formerly known as Forum Fest, which has traditionally been one of the largest all-make car enthusiast events in the Pacific Northwest and will also include a complete change in event format.

“Over the past five years we’ve had the pleasure of doing many different projects and events with both SpeedFactory and Pacific Raceways,” said Josh Mackey, President of NWMotiv. “These new events show us how committed both are to the Northwest community and we’re happy to continue these partnerships for years to come.”


The Winter Toy Drive and Meet is free to attend and all types of donations are encouraged to benefit Seattle Children’s. Pricing for each of NWMotiv’s 2016 events is yet to be determined.
