Thank you for your support!
The New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities is proud to announce that over $140,000 was raised at the events held during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend. Oh what a fabulous weekend it was!
Our weekend was kicked off by the Inaugural Malco Distributors of New England "One for the Kids" Golf Tournament presented by F.L. Merrill Construction. The day was filled with fun and excitement as foursomes made their way around Loudon Country Club. Players were treated to "play a hole" with celebrities such as Dick Berggren, Larry McReynolds, Allen Bestwick, Adam Alexander, Matt Bonner and Luke Bonner. The rain held off for most of the day and everyone came off the course with a smile. We are already looking forward to next year's event!
On Friday morning of race weekend the NH Chapter of SCC was pleased to be able to partner with the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth and David's House for the Annual Governor's Breakfast. Attendees were treated to Carl Edwards, driver of the Ford Fusion Aflac #99 car and National Spokesperson for SCC, as the keynote speaker. In addition Joey Logano, Driver of the Home Depot #20 car answered questions from Fox Sports Pit Reporter Dick Berggren. It was a great morning and a wonderful turnout to help two exceptional organizations.
Saturday night following the New England 200 Nationwide Race we had the SCC track walk. The rain held off and the track walk participants had a great time making their way around “The Magic Mile." Some of our special guests at the event included the Marshall Family from Lyme, NH who were featured on the ABC hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Laura Boyce from ROCK 101 The Morning Buzz Show, Dick Berggren from Fox Sports and NASCAR Driver Joe Nemechek.
We wrapped up our weekend events with the Ride of a Lifetime that provided fans the ability to bid on riding for a lap with their favorite NASCAR driver. We had all of the auction winners and their guests come in the infield prior to the race for a pit tour and then we loaded the winning bidder in the back of the truck for driver introductions. It was truly the ride of a lifetime!
I want to extend a sincere thanks to everyone for making this past race weekend such an incredible success. With the help of all the SCC Board Members, volunteers, sponsors, and participants we were able to raise money that will help children's organizations across our region. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are looking forward to the upcoming Sylvania 300 race weekend in September.
