Lord help me!
I often sit down and ponder… WHAT AM I THINKING!? I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT DRIVE A RACECAR!
but then I remind myself its for a good cause!
So what is The Better Half Dash?
Its a race put together by MRO (motor racing outreach) for the Ladies of Nascar!
On October 8th nine other “Better Halves” and I will add our own element of speed, danger and fun to Bank of America 500 Week when we take to the front stretch quarter-mile for the third annual Better Half Dash on Bojangles’ Pole Night!
Whoever raises the most total dollars in sponsorships will have the opportunity to select her starting spot regardless of how they qualify. So far I am in the top 3 of donations and I am hoping I can snag that p1 position because I literally have no clue what I am doing! I want to say a HUGE thank you to my sponsor, Rimz One. You can cheek out their website here : http://www.rimzoneonline.com
The Better Half Dash will be 25 laps, with a competition caution set for lap 15. Caution laps will not count. There will be one spotter per driver, R.E. will provide radio communication. Beginning of the race will be double file, also after the competition caution we will start double file. On any other restarts, the start will be single file.
The winner of the race will be awarded $10,000 to donate to charities. $2,500 of the winnings will be donated the Speedway Children’s Charity, another $2,500 will be donated to Motor Racing Outreach and the remaining $5,000 will be donated to a charity or charities of our choice. The $5,000 may be split up and donated to multiple charities. The charity I have decided to donate to if I win will be Canines For Disabled Kids.
Online donations will be counted up until midnight 10/7/15. You can donate by going to http://www.betterhalfdash.com and clicking on your favorite driver and the donate button.
So lets cross our fingers and pray that my spotter and husband, Brian Scott doesn’t get too irritated with my lack of driving skills and pray for a win! Thank you to everyone who has donated to me so far! It means so much. I promise I will give it my all but i can’t promise that I won’t wreck the whole field trying (hehe)!
