Southern National Motorsports Park will be raising money in 50/50 raffles for Mini’s Mission and the Brad Keselowski Checkered Flag Foundation during the Thanksgiving Classic this weekend.
Mini’s Mission “Burning Rubber to Help Another” raises funds to help battle childhood cancer while the Brad Keselowski Checkered Flag Foundation benefits wounded military members, veterans, first-responders and their families among others. The 50/50 for Mini’s Mission will be held during Saturday’s races at the Thanksgiving Classic and the 50/50 for the Brad Keselowski foundation will be held during Sunday’s races.
Multiple Brad Keselowski gift pack and other memorabilia will be raffled off during Sunday’s portion of the Thanksgiving Classic, including, “two (2) Brad Keselowski gift packs that include a t-shirt, travel mug, autographed die cast, hat and coozie and one (1) Commemorative display with a 1:64 die cast and a piece of sheet metal from the #2 Miller Lite car (autographed by Brad Keselowski)”.
If the grand prize winner of the 50/50 drawing donates their winnings back to the Brad Keselowski Checkered Flag Foundation, they will receive two garage passes to any one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, which includes a guided tour of the pits, garage and BKR hauler, a meet and greet with the BKR drivers and two BKR/Checkered Flag Foundation prize packs.
The Brad Keselowski Checkered Flag Foundation is headed by Brad and his girlfriend, Paige White. Paige White is the daughter of Late Model racer Louis White, who has frequented Southern National many times during his career.
Proceeds from Saturday’s 50/50 drawing go to Mini’s Mission, which spports Jeff Gordon’s foundation. Late Model racer Timmy “Mini” Tyrell started the foundation after watching his friend, Ella, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Tyrell has since become determined with raising donations and raising awareness for childhood cancer with hopes of one day opening a hospital for children with cancer if a cure cannot be found.
Tyrell will be competing in the Limited Late Model race on Saturday night.
The Thanksgiving Classic is a three day event featuring races for 11 divisions that will be held from Friday night, November 25th through Sunday, November 27th at Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, North Carolina.
