I-35 Speedway, Saturday June 23, 2018 is an opportunity for the racing community to give back, it will be the 7th Annual “Racin for Rian”. We love our fun and our racing, and yes, we will have fun and we will have racing, but in the process, we will be giving back to St. Luke’s Foundation. This event has become an annual occasion started by Bud and Amanda Wilson when they lost Baby Rian who was born 4 months early in 2010.
I-35 Speedway is located at exit 64 off Interstate 35. Make plans now to assist the racing community in supporting our local community. Gates open at 4:30 P.M., hot laps at 6:15 P.M., and racing begins at 7:00 P.M. Adults are $12, Seniors (62 and over) $10, age 18 and younger are FREE.
With the passing of Bud this past winter, the Wilson family is continuing this tradition. The Wilson’s have collected and donated over $20,000 to the Saint Luke’s Foundation Intensive Care Nursery fund since starting this event. They gain this money through sponsorships, through t-shirts sales, and through the drivers doing a collection in the grandstands. Racin’ for Rian shirts are currently on sale please contact Paula Wilson Murphy at 660-635-0639. As a race fan purchasing a shirt is helping with this event.
