14th Annual Charity Airport Drag Races
August 20 & 21 2016
NEWS RELEASE FOR 14th Annual AIRPORT CHARITY DRAGS, Aug. 20, 21.
This is our 14th annual 1/8th mile drag race held at the Altona Municipal Airport. For two days, we take over this venue, with a maximum field of 60 paid entries per day @ $75 each. $25 of that fee goes back in the form of prize money. Several thousand people attend this race, and we have not raised our admission in 14 years to keep it affordable for families. We also keep our food prices affordable as we have our own Food Booth.
This is a professionally run race with racers getting receiving time slips after each run. Instant results are displayed on our Race America Reader Boards. Dave Millar of Millar Machine Company in Winkler is our Platinum Sponsor, lane Sponsors again for this year are: Derksen Trucking (Altona), and Triple E Leisure Products (Winkler).
Back by popular demand is the Members Challenge Race. This event features Legends car club members racing their cars competing for bragging rights! These 16 entries are at NC, no prize money, and the limit is 8 per day. Members are allowed to enter for one day only. To register complete the form on our website and state Members Challenge. www.legendscarclub.ca
Our feature event this year will be “The Quick 8 Invitational”. 8 of the fastest cars in Southern Manitoba will have a showdown Saturday and Sunday competing for $3000 in prize money!
Each year we gave 25% of our profits to a regional cause; this year’s recipient will be Genesis house in Winkler. This is a shelter for women and children in distress, serving an area from Roseau River to Cartwright MB.
We appreciate your support in promoting a real fun filled weekend with a great cause. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 324-4173.
Thank you, Richard Neufeld
