Saturday race will boost Dream Team Foundation

By Michael Knight




Lancaster Motor Speedway is teaming up with The Lancaster Dream Team Foundation to help raise funds for the Dream Team program.

“Let’s give these great, young kids a night they will not forget,” Lancaster Motor Speedway owner Doug McManus said.

The Lancaster County Dream Team is a non-profit organization with a mission to enrich the lives of children with disabilities through a variety of activities. The organization was founded in 2007, and the free program offers Lancaster County children between the ages of 6-21 with mental and/or physical disabilities the opportunity to play organized sports.

Through the generosity of area sponsors and donations, each participant receive a uniform with hat, medal per sport, snack after every game, end of the season party, and a wonderful year-end banquet.

The LMS event will feature raffle tickets, with drawings throughout the night on Saturday,

A fire suit of Lancaster Motor Speedway legendary driver Kenny Polston will also be auctioned during the event.

A host of other racing-related items will be auctioned.

The racing action features all seven track divisions running, highlighted by the $1,300-to-win NDRA GM Performance Late Models and the $1,000-to-win Crate Sportsman.

Bonus money of $100 will be added to the top of Pure Street along with Super Street, Stock 4, FWD/UCAR and Vintage.

The race is growing bigger by the minute and there will be more updates about this special night of racing in the Friday paper.

In addition, parents can have their children participate in the name the track mascot.

The drop box is at the front gate. Children should add their name at the bottom of the contest entry, so you can win $25, if the name you wrote is picked.

The High Rollers Tower Party Crew will be providing gift bags for the Dream Team kids.

“On behalf of LMS, thank you High Rollers,” McManus said. “If anybody else wants to donate funds, or provide anything to help The Dream Team Foundation visit their website at http://thedreamteamfoundation.com/.
