CB Motorsports, Bingham Family Foundation, and DLGL Software Announce "Race To Recovery" Campaign
Winners will be the American Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina
CB Motorsports, the Bingham Family Foundation, and DLGL Software are today announcing they each will contribute $10,000 to the American Red Cross to kick off the "Race To Recovery" campaign to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. While the flood waters are just now stating to recede, and inroads are being made to rescue all of the victims, the tragedy continues for the people of that region. And the need to lend financial support continues as well.
In announcing this campaign to raise funds for the American Red Cross, the CB Motorsports / DLGL Software partners are also announcing a challenge to every other team running in the Grand Am series to show their support by donating to the campaign. The campaign is open to participation by everyone in the Grand Am racing community - including the many great fans that follow sportscar racing with so much passion.
Team Owner Chris Bingham" "Everyone is encouraged to participate in this extremely worthy "Race To Recovery". And with every contribution the real winners are the good people who lived along the Gulf Coast and who have had their entire lives wrenched away from them overnight. With every 'competitive contribution' the racing community takes the lead in this race to resurrect this devastated region of the United States."
On the Grand American Road Racing Association website it was recently announced that, "Synergy Racing and its sponsors have partnered with the Virginia-based, disaster-relief charity God's Pit Crew to help bring supplies to the devastated gulf coast region."
CB Motorsports Driver and DLGL R&D Director Hugo Guénette: "Synergy and God's Pit Crew are to be commended for taking a lead role in this extremely important recovery effort. We salute them and we hope to find that the other teams in Grand Am - as well as the fans - will show their support as well by joining us in this campaign. The people of the American Gulf Coast are counting on us for help and we will make sure that they get it."
And, since every racer likes to have an edge when 'competing', CB Motorsports and DLGL Software will also donate any and all prize money they win for the balance of the racing season.
CB Motorsports, the Bingham Family Foundation and DLGL Software are hoping to find that there is a full field for this race! So ladies and gentlemen, let the green (as in dollars!) flag wave!
