Schedule Conflict Forces the Postponement of the 1st Annual "Reed Sorenson Charity Classic"
Tuesday, January 30, 2007
Due to a recently scheduled Goodyear tire test, the 1st Annual "Reed Sorenson Charity Classic" benefiting the Atlanta Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities has been postponed. Representatives from Speedway Children's Charities were notified last week that Reed would have to attend a two day tire test scheduled for Darlington Raceway March 13-14 which would have kept him from attending the tournament.
"After much consideration we would rather reschedule the tournament than continue without Reed," said Pat Thompson the Director of Speedway Children's Charities Atlanta Chapter. "As a native of the Atlanta area who grew up racing Legends Cars at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Reed Sorenson is not just the host of the tournament, he is extremely popular with local fans and a big supporter of our local chapter."
The plan now is to hold the tournament on October 24th before the fall race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Please check back to our website www.speedwaycharities.org for the most up to date information on the 1st Annual "Reed Sorenson Charity Classic".
