Everything is going great with Circle Heart Racings endeavor to raise money for the Speedway Children's Charities. So far I have completed 200 laps of the anticipated 440 laps for the season pledges. The Ron's Auto Sales # 28 car has been finishing every race in the top ten with a few top fives and are currently 2nd in points for the Masters Division at Lanier National Speedway.

The pledges are now in excess of $7500 averaging $15 per lap turned in the feature race which has accumulated about $3000 in donations. In addition, the sticker and patch sales are going very good with about $2000 collected from drivers and race teams showing their support for the Speedway Children's Charities.

I would like to welcome our latest pledge, Robertson Racing. Andrea and Dave Robertson race SCCA and IMSA events in a GT-2 car. They pledged $2.50 per lap for 200 laps that will total about $500 for the second half of my season. This is a reminder to everyone that it is not too late to get a pledge in for Ron's Racing Rally and the Speedway Children's Charities; I have more than eleven races left to complete this season, encourage a friend to match your pledge

Lanier National Speedway, my home track, has been very supportive of my fundraising efforts by helped out last week with a raffle ticket sale. LNS had a Dukes of Hazard night and donated an autographed Dukes of Hazard die cast car to be raffled. There were three volunteers that sold raffle tickets during the races collecting over $350 for the Speedway Children's Charities. It was really cool because Sonny Shroyer "Deputy Enos Strate" was there to draw the winning ticket.

As always, I would like to thank everyone for your continued support. Together we will make a difference in some child's life and that what it's all about!
