Alumni and Relay for Life night at the races
Members of the Dodge County Speedway Association have a full night of racing action and activities planned this Sunday, May 31. Race night activities from a rainout last week were doubled up this week to recognize past drivers of the Horsepower Half Mile. Alumni Night, Hall of Fame and Relay for Life all scheduled this Sunday plus the on track action of IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Northern Sport Mods, Street Stocks, Grand Nationals and Dirt Late Models.
Alumni Night recognizes drivers from the past with free admission and a brief ceremony at intermission. The DCSA is looking for old and new faces from racing families that participated in the races at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway. Past drivers should email halfmiledcsa@gmail or call 920-318-9537 to RSVP and get on the guest list to be recognized during this awesome event. If you forget to RSVP, show up at the main gate on Sunday and talk to Pegi Erdmann. Pegi was involved in racing at the Half Mile for many years and will have past results to confirm your racing history.
At intermission the first three inductees of the Half Mile Hall of Fame will be announced and added to the board. Plaques will be presented to the families of past members who were instrumental in supporting racing at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway. Racing operated under different groups and clubs over the years, these dedicated race fans supported throughout.
Racing for a cure, DCSA will make a $2 donation for every Relay for Life shirt or purple shirt that comes through general admission gates. In partnership with Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society, members of the DCSA supports local charities and hopes to see you there.
Pit Gates open at 12 noon to allow extra time for car inspections this Sunday. Drivers should park their haulers in their pit spot, unload their car and line-up on the north side of the green 4-H building for inspection.
