One of America’s most popular Charity Panel Jams will be part of The Triple Crown of Rodding’s inaugural event September 8-9, 2023, at Nashville Superspeedway.

The innovative Krazy Paint will bring in some of the best pinstripers and artists to create Hot Rod Art that will be sold and auctioned to raise money for kids. Over 50 artists from across the U.S. and Canada will be donating their time and creativity to the hot rod tradition of helping kids. Items like car parts, panels, cartoons, toilet seats, chairs, toolboxes, mugs, and collectibles will be turned into fine art and auctioned during the Triple Crown of Rodding event.

There will be a total of four auctions, two each day of the show, where items will go up for bid. Times for the auctions are Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Items will also be for sale at the “Buy It Now” tables during show hours.

All the money raised goes to Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) helping local area kids. SCC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and provides funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations throughout the nation that meet the direct needs of children. Also, the 50/50 raffle will go half to one lucky winner by “luck of the draw” and half to the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. Additional monies will be given to another charity run by the Operative Talent group.

The 1 Shot by PPG Krazy Paint stage will be in the Triple Crown pit garages where seats and tables are available. Want to see what will be happening? Check out their YouTube video:, or check out Krazy Paint on Facebook.
