contributes to community with CMN fund-raiser!
October 29, 2000; Wisconsin Rapds, WI - During the July 3rd, 2000 Mars Race at Golden Sands Speedway the Childrens Miracle Network held a pretty cool promotion to raise some monies for their organization. Track Promoter, Craig Bassuener, agreed to be duct taped to the hood of a racecar, which would be driven around the track for one lap.
Fans could buy a twelve-inch piece of duct tape for $1.00. There was an auction bid for who ever wanted to drive the car around the track. Drivers and fans bought quite a few feet of duct tape. Golden Sands Speedway and the Childrens Miracle Network would like to thank Glenn Hayes for bidding the highest to drive the car around the track. Glenn bid $150.00 for the privilege.
Glenn never drove a racecar before, and was going to let one of the Golden Sands Safety Officials drive, but long time racer, Mike Havel jumped in the car and took off. Mike bought about $75.00 worth of duct tape, but how about sending CMN a check for $150.01, for actually getting to drive the car? The CMN kids would love you for it.
Pat Deboer, Golden Sands Speedways CMN contact, would like to thank everyone who participated in the fundraiser. There was over $500 raised for the kids. She especially would like to thank Craig Bassuener. She said, Craig was so brave to do that for us, he really enjoys helping out the kids. The kids really appreciate it also. Pats grandson, Wyatt Feaster is the 2000 CMN s spokes child.
