View Full Version : Three race event with proceeds going to Make A Wish

01-04-2007, 05:20 AM
Stainless Works announces the 2007 Race4AWish. The event will take place May 30th through June 1st. The event will be at Thompson Drag strip, May 30th, and at Beaverun May 31st through June 1st. The first event will be a drag race; the second will be Open Track, and the third an autocross. The rules will be very simple-competitors must drive their vehicle from event to event, and run on the same DOT tires for all three events (See rules for tire regulations). There are no restrictions on vehicle modifications. Five classes will be used for the Race.

· Vintage American Muscle (Pre 1982, seats 4 or more)
· Modern American Muscle (1982-current)
· Sport Compact
· SuperCar (Corvette, GT, Viper, etc.)
· Street Rod

Scoring will be as follows:
For each event, first place is awarded points equal to 5x the number of official entrants. Each succeeding position is awarded 5 points less than the previous. Thus, if there are 95 entrants, then first place for a particular event would be awarded 475 points with second place receiving 470, third 465 and so on. Similarity, class points for a particular event are awarded with first place receiving points equal to 5x the number of official entrants in that class. Thus, if there are 10 entrants in Vintage American class, first place at each event would receive 50 points, second 45 and so on. A DNS (Did not start) or DNF (Did not finish) receives 0 (zero) points.

To be overall winner and class winner will be determined by the total high scores accrued from each of the contests along the route. Ties will be decided by the total elapsed time in competition events. Trophies will be awarded for overall standings and class winners, and also for overall winner of each daily event.

Registration is $350 for the event can be accomplished by visiting the website: www.race4awish.com (http://www.race4awish.com) and downloading the registration forms. The forms can then be mailed with payment to:

The purpose of the Race4aWish is to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities. The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 144,000 children around the world. Although it has become one of the world's most well-known charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has maintained the grassroots fulfillment of its mission.

The event is planned to run Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and will end right before the start of the Hot Rod Power Tour, whcih starts this year in Cleveland, Ohio.

Moderators: Can I get a sticky for this??

Thanks for your support an help in raising money for a great charity. 100% of the proceeds for this are going to the Cleveland Make A Wish organization.

So competitors can trailer to the start of the event? Just no trailers between the separate race venues?

Hi John

Yes, you can trailer to the start of the event-I have had a lot of requests for this, so we will allow it-no trailers from event to event.

Man, this looks like a great event. You guys near it should be all over this one. Let's see, I could always leave for Power Tour a week early.........lol

Interesting stuff, for those of us that do not know, Where is Thompson Drag strip and Beaverun?

01-14-2007, 08:14 PM
I'm trying to see how I can fit this in my schedule this year ...

Being able to trailer to the event should help bring in more out-of-town enthusiasts.

Hi Guys

Thompson is on the northeast side of cleveland:

Beaverun is located off of the ohio turnpike, just inside the PA border:

http://www.beaverun.com (http://www.beaverun.com)

Both tracks are very nice facilities and hotel info will be posted on the race 4 a wish site in the next month.

Come in early for the power tour, do the race 4 a wish, and then do the tour! No better endorsement for a car builder/owner than to do a three race deal, and then go on Power Tour!!! There is going to be some crazy fast stuff there!

Hi Guys

Mark Stielow is on the list with Camaro X, as are some really fast late model cars-Danny Popp from Cincinnati will be there driving a late model Z06, Air Ride will be bringing some awesome stuff out, and Hawks will be bringing out some third gen cars also!!

It is a great opportunity to prove what you have is fast AND driveable, and do it for a great cause.
