NASCAR® Driver Casey Mears to Race Make-A-Wish® Child June 20 at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort

On Monday, June 20, veteran NASCAR® driver Casey Mears is set to race a 10-year-old girl representing Make-A-Wish® Central and Northern Florida at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in a friendly competition dubbed the MINILAND 400. The two-car race #BuiltForKids celebrates the theme park’s giant new Daytona International Speedway model in MINILAND USA, the place where guests discover towering LEGO® landmarks from across the United States.

From behind the wheel of a
LEGO version of his No. 13 GEICO race car, Mears will face off against a plucky
young girl from Orlando. The pair will zoom past LEGO miniatures of such
American landmarks as the Statue of Liberty, the New York City skyline, the Las
Vegas Strip and Kennedy Space Center before finishing in front of the giant new
model replicating the iconic motorsports stadium.

Afterward, Mears will greet
fans within the racing-themed Wheels Zone, one of several areas of hands-on
LEGO building activities inside the Polk County theme park’s newly
re-imagined Imagination Zone.

The one-day-only event
marks the official debut of the new Daytona International Speedway model, which
took a team of Master Model Builders months to create out of nearly 300,000
LEGO bricks, and to preview the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ return to DIS for the
Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola on Saturday, July 2.


Monday, June 20, 2016 from
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (EDT)

Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 15:
