CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (Nov. 12) -- A special event takes

on even greater meaning this weekend when the USMTS

Southern Series invades the South Texas Speedway in Corpus

Christi, Texas, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov.

Friday night is designated as Childhelp Night, and race

fans can help play a direct role in the treatment and

For every ticket sold in the grandstands on Friday, a

donation of $1 will go to Childhelp to help carry out

their mission of meeting the physical, emotional,

educational, and spiritual needs of abused and neglected

children.

 

Founded in 1959, Childhelp is a leading national

non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of

child abuse and neglect, while their approach focuses on

prevention, intervention and treatment. Childhelp also

operates a National Child Abuse Hotline that is open 24

hours a day, 7 days a week. This hotline receives calls

from the United States, Canada, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam

and Puerto Rico. Please contact them if you or some one

you know is being abused at 1-800-4-A-CHILD

We will be having our annual auction for the Chance Brownlee Memorial Shrine Benefit Race. It was originally schedule for September 2, but cancelled due to rain. Imagine that! So we will be have race memoriable plus other items from local business to auction. Also that Shriners will be there to collect money to go to the hospital transportation fund. Thank you for your help.
