Racing Community Comes Together for a Great Cause
(Kansas City, MO) – WELD Racing is proud to support two great Kick It for Children’s Cancer charity events, part of the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation this week in Knoxville, IA.
First is the WELD Racing Tony Stewart Kart Race Spectacular, originally planned to feature Tony Stewart or Jeff Gordon racing against participants in each heat race. Due to injury, a replacement for Tony Stewart will be announced.
The kart race winner will receive a one-of-a-kind trophy presented by Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart (pending injury update), and the entire A Main will play in the Tony Stewart Kick It Cup kickball game.
On Friday, August 9 at Knoxville’s Young’s Park, four teams composed of the best sprint car drivers in the world, their families, and fans will meet for a day of kickball fun to raise money to fight children’s cancer.
Between the innings, there will be an auction to raise additional funds for the charity. WELD Racing is supporting the auction by donating a set of WELD forged aluminum truck wheels. The highest bidder may choose from 10 styles in our 17″ or 20” line of truck wheels, a retail value of more than $3,000.00.
“WELD Racing is pleased to support such a worthy charity” said Chris Bovis, Vice President of Marketing for WELD Racing. “With such a competitive group of racers, we expect both the kickball game and the go kart race action to be hotly contested.”
Both great events will take place in Knoxville, IA. For more information, please visit http://www.kick-it.org/
