Fans can enjoy hot rods and hot cakes Saturday, March 27, during the inaugural NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway as Speedway Children's Charities and B.R.A.K.E.S. team up for a pancake fundraiser.

The Hot Rods and Hot Cakes breakfast, located in Doug Herbert's hospitality pit area from 8-10 a.m., will give fans the opportunity to eat breakfast alongside NHRA's most notable team owners and drivers.

"This is going to be something really fun for the fans," said B.R.A.K.E.S. founder Doug Herbert. "From the time B.R.A.K.E.S. was started, we have had so much support from the NHRA fans, especially those here in my hometown of Charlotte. I think this will be a fun event where fans can show their support for our cause, and who knows: maybe the pancakes will be served up by one of their favorite drivers!"

Breakfast will be provided by Golden Corral and include pancakes, sausage and breakfast beverages. Tickets for this fundraising event may be purchased in advance for $10 at www.charlotte.speedwaycharities.org or the day of for $15 at the door.
