Bottled Up! Help a local family

Causeyville Raceway is having a benefit race this Saturday May 1st for Dalton Riley. Dalton is 14 years old and needs a kidney transplant. His Dad is the only available donor so in addition to the medical expenses he will be out of work for around 4 months. All proceeds from the race are going to the Riley's. BBQ chicken plates will be on sale beginning at 10:30 AM for $5. You do not have to pay an admission fee to come in and pick up plates but if you stay to watch the races a $5 donation is requested. Pit passes are $20.

Spencer has made a bottle tree to be auctioned off at the race. Check out the pictures below.

MS Dirt Track Series - Booneville - 2010

So, I think I've figured out a way to post the photos without going to a paid site. This is a short-term solution and I'm looking into other uploading venues. I took over 1600 photos Saturday, so you've got a few to look at. I may have to put a paypal button to the side to help support the photo/video fee. I'd love to hear from our readers to see if they'd be willing to donate a dollar to keep seeing them. :)

I'll let Johnny do his usual magic with the video and write up. It may be a couple of days, so hang in there.

Thanks - Jennifer

Race Report

Spencer qualified on the pole for the Jr Purple class. When the feature race started he was able to pull out to a pretty good lead but caution after caution kept slowing the field. After hanging in there for 12 laps we had one last restart on lap 13. Jacob was in 2nd place and pulled a smooth move on Spencer going into turn one to take the lead. Another kart hit Spencer from behind and wheel hopped him almost giving his Mom a heart attack but he was able to hold on and bring home another 2nd place finish. Congratulations to Jacob on the win! This is a short week and we haven't even had time to watch the video but I will try to get it posted soon.

This week is a regular Saturday night show at Causeyville then we have a week off before the big Dalton Riley Benefit Race at Causeyville on May 1st. Dalton has major medical problems and is in need of a kidney transplant. His dad is the donor so on top of all the medical bills he will have to be off work for several months. The race format will be the same as the MS Dirt Track Series but all proceeds will go to the Riley family. BBQ plates will be sold for $5 each. Tickets are available now at BJ's Tire and Service Center in Quitman, MS.
