Together WE Fight Hunger 25 for 35 in honor of Brian Hetrick set to be first event of 2012
DONNELLSON, Iowa (April 18, 2012) – The weather forecast for Friday has cleared up and it now calls for high chance of racing action finally getting underway at Lee County Speedway, Donnellson, Iowa.
Hy-Vee and Midwest Performance bring one of the biggest shows of the year to the facility, as they host the Together WE Fight Hunger 25 for 35 in honor of Brian Hetrick. The race boasts a $1,000 to win and $200 to start 305 sprint car race and now a $500 to win Shottenkirk Parts Express IMCA Sport Mod race.
As well as being a sponsor for the night, Hy-Vee is also helping with one of the best parts of the event, the campaign to raise money to purchase necessities for area food pantries. Money donations will be taken throughout the night and for every $25 raised as part of the event, Hy-Vee will donate $10 more when food is purchased at either the Fort Madison or Keokuk Hy-vee. So that means Hy-Vee will make every $25 into $35 worth of nonperishable food items for food pantries in the area!
Many great sponsors have come on board to help make the event special! Including H&P Excavating, which will sponsor a dash to help set up the front three rows of the feature event. Each heat winner as well as the top cars in passing points will be used to fill the six car field for the H&P Excavating Dash. The pay for the H&P Excavating Dash is listed at the end of the story.
