On Saturday August 14, 2010 Waynesfield Raceway Park returns to action with a great show featuring the Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprints, Miracle Motorsports Tuff Trucks, AMSA Mini-Sprints and JR and Sons Service Center Compacts. The Non Wing Sprints will compete in double features as they run the makeup feature from Saturday July 24th.

More importantly, Waynesfield Raceway Park will once again be “Racing For Kids With Cancer”. Every fan who brings a new toy to be donated will receive a free hot dog or free soda courtesy of the Waynesfield Raceway Park concession stand, and they will also be entered into a raffle for several different gift baskets of items donated from local businesses. All toys will be donated to Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus Ohio, courtesy of UPS, to be given to children stricken with cancer when they have a procedure done at the medical facility. Gift baskets will be comprised of items donated from the following businesses: Texas Roadhouse; Westgate Lanes; Applebees; McDonalds; Cut and Color Crew; Metokote; Chuck-E-Cheese; Fat Jacks Pizza; Player’s Sports and Spirits; Coaches Bar and Grill; Tim’s Dirt Track Simulators and Souvenirs; Wendy’s; Mustang Pizzeria; Snack Shack; Attitudes Hair Salon; and Padrone’s Pizza in Wapak. The first 100 kids through the front gate will receive goody bags!

In addition to those giveaways, there is also a raffle for a brand new BELL Racing Helmet signed by several open wheel superstars including the winner of the 1st Annual Jack Hewitt Classic, “The Flyin Buckeye” Matt Westfall, Jon Stanbrough, Levi Jones, and several others. Tickets for the helmet will be available at the track, and are $5 each or 5 for $20.

“Racing For Kids With Cancer” is an event very near to the hearts of several of the racers and teams at Waynesfield Raceway Park, but none more than the family, team, and friends of Tim Dick, driver of the #18b Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprint at Waynesfield. Tim’s daughter Ashley was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2008 at the age of 5. Ashley and her family created Ashley’s Angels, a group dedicated to not only Ashley and seeing her through her tough ordeal, but also seeing that the other children at Nationwide Childrens Hospital are given reasons to smile despite facing difficult times in their own battles. With the help of fellow racers Matt and Gabe Twining and family, and the support of all of our racing family at Waynesfield Raceway Park, the 1st Annual “Racing For Kids With Cancer” Toy Drive was a rousing success, and we are looking forward to making this year’s event even better

So come out and donate a toy and enjoy a great night of racing with us on Saturday August 14th as we go “Racing For Kids With Cancer” at Waynesfield Raceway Park.
