Racers Raise Funds for PVGP at Nelson Ledges

PVGP Racers Attend Test & Tune at Nelson Ledges and Raise Over $1,000 for PVGP Charities

The August 11 Test & Tune event was a resounding success, thanks to the 16 drivers plus one volunteer who came out in support of the PVGP.  The weather was a perfect, mid-summer day with a nice breeze and temperatures in the 80’s.

There were three run groups with “A” and “B” for the closed-wheel cars split into faster and slower cars, with “C” for open-wheel cars.  Along with the PVGP drivers, other regular T&T participants brought the total to about two dozen.  This gave everyone lots of track time and plenty of space on the newly repaved and technically challenging track.

Thanks to Reed Kryder with Kryderacing and Brian Ross and Fred Wolfe at Nelson Ledges for their much-appreciated hospitality.  We hope to hold another similar event in the not-too-distant future.

We had great food from the Pitt Stop lunch truck and overall everyone had a very enjoyable day for a very worthwhile cause.

For anyone who was unable to come out, but would still like to make a donation, you can click the box below and add to the total.
