Mt. Pleasant, Mich. — Cans from Race Fans' organizers Alvie Haynes and Jeremy Dickman, with sponsorships from several local businesses (to be announced when finalized) have announced the "Cans from Race Fans Pre-Xtreme 1000" for UMP Modifieds on Friday, August 19, 2011 at the Mt. Pleasant Speedway, 4658 E. River Road, in Mt. Pleasant, MI 48858.
The event will pay $1,000 to Win the UMP Modified Feature, along with $100 to start the main event. Increased payouts are also scheduled for all 20 finishing positions.
Prior to the racing action, there will be a "Cans from Race Fans" Food Drive, the second of 2011, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ric's Food Center in Mt. Pleasant where we will be having racecars on display and collecting non-perishable food items for local charities including Isabella Community Soup Kitchen, Central Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross and others. At 4 p.m. the food drive will move over to the Mt. Pleasant Speedway and with a donation of at least 5 cans of food, patrons will receive a discounted admission to the main grandstands.
Come out and support this great cause and race. Meet drivers, get autographs and photos taken. Fun for all ages!
