"Short Track USA with Bill Green" and LUGNUTS Family Race Place Would like to announce the 3RD ANNUAL RACING FAMILY FUNDRAISER schedule. The 2001 race season ending event, will be held on NOVEMBER 18TH, 2001. Some 15 hours of FUN & FUNDRAISING are tentatively scheduled for the annual ATLANTA 500 Winston Cup Sunday event.

Over the past two years, these annual events have raised a great deal of awareness and some $15,000 dollars for racing's local nonprofit and personal family needs. As the planning begins for this the 3RD Annual event, we want to remind everyone in the racing community and all of Florida, to begin there efforts now, to raise awareness and funds for this years event.

Each race track, racing sponsor, and race fan is challenged to raise funds for the event through donations, craft sales, and other creative ways. Then bring the proceeds to the 3RD Annual Event and join in as we celebrate what we hope will be another great season ending ANNUAL RACING FAMILY FUNDRAISER event for all.

Along the way, from now until November 18TH, LUGNUTS and "Short Track USA" will be auctioning off special donated items at the end of several NASCAR events. Daytona netted $717 dollars toward what we hope will be a banner year.

Each year the folks involved with the above businesses, host this annual event at 1479 S. Belcher Rd., Largo, FL. With plenty of parking available, we will host not only the regularly scheduled Annual Racing Family Fundraiser Auction, which begins immediately after the post race celebration of the Atlanta 500, but we will have a custom and race car show, plus kids games, a karaoke contest and all with prizes and trophies. LUGNUTS has plenty of TV's for Atlanta 500 viewing and loads of space.

Like we will do each year for "Wild Bill" Revard, the figure eight driver killed on track at Sunshine Speedway in 1999, we will raise money for a scholarship award from the Q. Motorsports Student Racer Scholarship Program in his name. This is our most valuable way of remembering him and we can help someone's child enter higher learning with funds that make a difference.

We are currently seeking permission from Dale Earnhardt INC. to do a Q. Motorsports Scholarship in Dale SR's name also. We hope permission will be granted, but will respect the wishes of the family.

So remember to mark your planners and calendars with the 3RD Annual Racing Family Fundraiser date of Nov. 18TH, and the following planning meeting dates and times. These meetings are scheduled to take place at LUGNUTS Family Race Place. Individual tracks outside reasonable driving distance should request a meeting into there area. If your business wants a personalized meeting to boost involvement and in turn boost morale, contact us for special arrangements.

PLEASE pass the word by any means possible, and help us help the local racing community. You'll feel better just by getting involved.
