COTA Cares

Community Support

Circuit of The Americas is dedicated to helping our surrounding community and beyond. We are all vulnerable to unexpected hardships, and that’s when we need our community to come through for us. Circuit of The Americas prides itself on being more than a motorsports and entertainment facility. They are an organization of people who provide help the most to those who hurt the most.

Hurricane Relief

When the Gulf Coast storms struck in 2020, Circuit of The Americas partnered with the Department of Emergency Services and the City of Austin to act as a host site for the hurricane relief initiatives. The facility served South Texas by providing essentials like food, water, restrooms, and, most importantly, serving as a central location for families to identify their loved ones and shelter while waiting for hotels.

COTA Food Drive

On May 10, 2020 COTA collected food and monetary donations and raised over $200K in donations, which will provide over 1.6 million meals to the Central Texas community. Over 20,000 people and 400 dogs visited the track in 7,000 vehicles.

Back by popular demand, the event returned in 2022 to drive more awareness and funds for the Central Texas Food Bank.
