Raising money for charity is probably the best excuse keep your boss 30 feet in the air for an entire day without getting fired.
It was a task Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell couldn't resist.
Campbell spent his entire day Friday high atop the entrance sign at the speedway.
He didn't come down until they raised 20 thousand dollars for children in Henry County and Martinsville, part of their annual toy drive.
Before Campbell ascended, he told news7 this wasn't his idea to spend a cold Friday.
"I'm not sure who came up with the idea once I figure it out I'll deal with it later but anyway they figured send me to the top and let's raise money and until we get the money you don't come back down," Campbell said.
The toy drive got an early start with a six thousand dollar donation. Staff will continue to collect monetary and toy donations Saturday. Campbell will allow fans to drive their personal cars around the track as well for a small donation.
