We’re going to make the purse for the Clay City “Racer’s Reunion” the biggest ever. To do that we need your help. We already have enough pledges from fellow racers, sponsors and the typical track payout for 65% of our $3,000 goal with 10 months to go before race day.

If we are able to gather more support we will pay further down the ladder as well.

If you enjoy following along with the racing action from the comfort of your home computer, or if you’ve been to a race or two and had a blast, show your support by making a pledge to the purse.

The current list of contributors:
Mountain Park Dragway
Rick Covalt
Lou Madsen
Ron Hamby
Gerald Wright
Wayne Venable
Charlie Schmid
Ryan Covalt
Seymour Pederson
Rob Simmons

If you are interested in helping you can post here or shoot us a PM.

Some of the people/racers on this site have good relationships with companies. If they would just ask (like I did with Edge) some might be willing to help out. Doesn't hurt to ask, the worst that will happen, is you get a "no" for the answer. At one of the Ga races, I asked my local Advance store for something, and they gave me $25 gift cards, which went to 1st round losers.

Rob that is good! I will send you a Paypal to put you at $2000! Let's all kick in a few bucks and make this happen.

As for me, I would even be willing to pay a little more to race if that helped? This is after all a once in a lifetime event! It's tax time and you all are getting a refund right? So don't buy something with that money until you send a little Rob's way!
That's my sales pitch!!

Rick

Thanks Rick, but I don’t want to raise the entry fee. The purse will be covered one way or another. :wink:
