UNDATED -- The American Red Cross is teaming up with INDYCAR to help "refuel" the blood supply in the "race to save lives".

During the month of April, blood donors will be automatically entered to win a VIP trip for four to the 2022 Indianapolis 500. The Red Cross will also be giving away five $1,000 gift cards to a merchant of your choice.

The Red Cross says you can schedule an appointment by downloading the blood donor app, by visiting redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
