I've heard from Del and this will also involve some significant promotional exposure for some Texas race tracks. Normally, TXSZ does not permit posts for the various good causes that come our way, but this one also involves some significant involvement and promotional opportunities for the tracks.

 

Let me know if TXSZ can get more involved, Del.

i'd like to thank nick for allowing me to do this because, this is not just to benefit new danville in our efforts to have this go-cart race, it is also to promote racing in general for our area, we need a lot more racers thinking of themselves being their on promotor, without us drivers and owners out doing our job to bring fans, sponsors, and more cars to our industry, we may not have a place to race. like wise, i have a 28 year old daughter that at 11 days old had spinal meningitus with 105 fever and spinal fluid went to her head and left her with cebral pulsy for the rest of her life. this to my wife and i was just like a tornado that came up out of the blue and tore us up, the only thing is that a tornado goes away, this is a life time with no cure.

 

that is why i am promoting this race along with promoting our area race tracks at the same time, i need several cars from houston motorsports park, gator motor plex, 105 speedway, and houston raceway park on september 26, 2008 before 9:00pm or by 8:30am on the 27, if you want to promote your sponsors and tracks, this will be a good opportunity to do so, this race will be over by 4:00pm, you should have plenty of time to get to the track where you race with no problem. anyone interested in helping me with this very werthy cause, please contact me as soon as possible, all money recieved from this event except for cost will go 100% to new danville community, again, thanks to all of my fellow racers for coming together to make things happen, del harris 936-444-4444 :D

CAN NASKARTS ENTER THIS RACE...OR YOU ALREADY HAVE KARTS TO RUN THE RACE? WOULD BE FUN TO RUN IN THIS RACE FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

 

JUST CURIOUS.

 

WWW.NASKARTS.COM

 

this is a spec cart race, althou i wish some of the guy's with the naskarts would bring them over, if enough showed up, i would give them a race just for the show and entertainment for these disable adults. the other carts are paying $550.00 each just to race, but this is a charity race and all funds from entry fee's goes 100% to new danville. if you can get some of your guy,s together, give me a call, thanks, del
