Hope for Harlie: We are honored to announce a very special guest who will be waving the green flag at the start of our Hunter’s Sand & Gravel Pro Late Model race on Saturday. Harlie Bryant, a 6-year old girl who was diagnosed with Astrocytoma, a rare type of brain cancer, is fighting a brave battle against this disease, which has left her family in a financial bind. The specialized treatment they are seeking, because of other conventional treatments failing, is very expensive. The Pro Late Model drivers will be collecting money and greeting fans before the race to support Harlie. Please visit www.HopeforHarlie.org for further details on how you can help this little girl.
