Washington DC Region of the Sports Car Club of America (www.wdcr-scca.org) and Summit Point Raceway are teaming to raise funds for the South Jefferson Public Library. The Racing for Reading MARRS held June 16/17, 2001 at Summit Point Raceway, WV will raise funds for the South Jefferson County Public Library. "The DC Region has always recognized that we are part of the Summit Point community and this is just one of the ways we can give back to Jefferson County," said Don Caldwell, Regional Executive of DC Region.

In addition to the portion of each ticket and race entry that will be donated to the South Jefferson County Public Library, there will be a book sale to benefit the library and the Region will be holding parade laps on both Saturday and Sunday. The cost to participate in the parade laps is $20 per car each day. Over 250 cars are expected for the race weekend. Anticipated competitors include the big GT Corvettes and Mustangs, the small British and Japanese sports cars and the nimble purpose-built formula and sports racers.

An added highlight of the weekend will be the attendance at the event of several professional racing teams. duPont Motorsports ( www.dupontmotorsport.com ) will display three of their European Racing Technologies BMWs. Winchester's Prototype Technology Group ( www.ptgracing.com ) will be on hand with two of the American Le Mans Series BMWs. Several additional professional teams have expressed interest and may display as well.

Admission for the weekend is only $25 for a weekend pass or $15 for a Sunday-only ticket. There is no charge for camping and children under the age of 12 enter free. For more information, contact 1-888-660-5039.
