Pinks with a Twist 2nd annual race weekend - Last year was an amazing success for the Canadian Cancer Society Research Division due to the work done by all the racers, families and supporters of drag racing in the Maritimes. On top of that we had a fun weekend and a great race event!
This year we will look after all Canadian Cancer Society donations, like last year, where Mark MacDonald again will be set up in the Tower. Sponsor sheets will be on-line for you and at the racetrack. Again, the Canadian Cancer Society will send out tax receipts if requested.
Again this year for every $100 collected, a ballot goes towards the draw for a trip for 2 to the 2014 Gator Nationals in Florida. For those that have seen the latest ADRA newsletter, you can see where last years winner, Darren Creamer and family, had a super time at the races, meeting the Forces, Don Garlits, etc. I'm sure you all remember seeing the great Root Bear jumping in the air with excitement when the winning ticket was drawn!
Last year's Pinks winners were also excited with all the cash they won, plus the Bill Hickey Memorial Trophy, and the TJ Myers Wheels in Motion awards. Both are up for grabs again this year. Every racer that got into the position of betting half of their round money with their competition did. That's great participation!
Saturday will consist of Time Trials, Qualifying and Gamblers Race. The evening again will feature a dunk tank, casino night and the very popular wind up race car game will make its return!
Sunday morning starts off 8am to 10am with a pancake breakfast at our kiosk on the hill. Similar to last year, we will do the Gators draw before the main event with the help of the Great Root Bear.
There will be displays set up around the track including the Pinks Cancer fire engine, and the CARS movie stars, Mater and MacQueen. Debbie Livingstone will also have her display of Junior Dragsters on site for anyone interested in getting the kids involved in racing!
During the afternoon, a couple of celebrities will visit the dunk tank and a few celebrity race car rides will happen. The day will end with trophies and awards being presented to the winners.
Last year our Pinks had sponsors of both division rounds and we are doing that again this season. We are also getting more friends and familiies that are sponsoring a round in the name of someone close to them whether they have passed away or beaten a major health issue. Raceway Park has and had many devoted racers and familiies that have had major life health issues and we would like to hear and learn more about them. Bill Hickey, T.J. Myers, Norm Pickerem, Mrs. Linda Green and many others have been a part of the racing family and we are setting up a new page on line to commemorate these people. Anyone that would like to add information to this site or sponsor a round at Pinks, please contact us.
Raceway Park – Be There!
