CHAMPIONSHIP/FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT

CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT/FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT/CONNIE JEWETT BENEFIT. Race fans grab your partner (again) for the last dance of the 2015 racing season at Dawson County Raceway and the last dance for Allen and Lou Wissmann as track promoters. This Sunday night, August 23RD will be Championship Night and Fan Appreciation Night. We have lots of giveaways for our fans to say thanks for your support over the last decade of racing. We will a...lso be raising funds for one of our friends and track worker, Connie Jewett as she continues her battle with cancer. We will have lots of items to auction off. Drivers and friends of Connie have donated many items such as t-shirts, door & quarter panels off of their cars plus many other things including a checkered quilt. If you would like to donate an item please contact Allen or bring to the track Sunday night. We have many plans for Sunday night so the racing program will be a little different than in years past. We will have hot laps at 5:45pm. Then will begin the night with a couple of cash dashes for the sportmods and late models. The drivers will draw for a chance to compete in the dashes. Then we will run the hobby stock A feature, then the grand national late model A feature. Then we will take a intermission and begin the auction for the Connie Jewett Benefit. After the auction we will take a short break for track prep and then begin the rest of the features beginning with the modifieds, then sportmods and finish with the stock cars. The features will be lined heads up by points. If we would have more than 24 cars show up for any one particular class we will then do heat races for that class to qualify for the A feature. Following the features we will have a short fireworks display to commemorate the final night as track promoters for Dawson County Raceway. To end the night we will run mechanic races and powder puff races. Then it's party time in the pits. Admission for the races is $10 for adults, $5 for kids 6-12 and 5 & under free. Pit passes are $25 each and kids under the age of 10 is $10. Please make plans for a great final night of racing at the Dawson County Raceway, Lexington, Nebraska. A special thanks to Don Bolt and Elmwood Park Raceway for working with us to get this final attempt to end our season on a good night of racing, fun and fund raising. Lou and I thank everyone for all of your support of racing over the last decade and for your support during our current battle. We love you all and God bless you all!! This will be Lou and I's last night as promoters at Dawson County Raceway!! Its been a helluva ride the last 10 years!!  A big thanks to the drivers, pit crew, sponsors and fans for all your support over the years. A huge thanks to the awesome staff of DCR, thank you for working with you over the years and making it a lot easier making the racing program go smoothly. We love you all and thanks for the support while Lou is kicking cancer's ass. Thanks for a great decade of racing!! Allen & Lou Wissmann
