FANSFUND SET TO KICKOFF 2014 WITH EXCITING NEW FORMAT

May 6th, 2014

New Richmond, WI (May 6, 2014): The 2014 edition of the FANSFund is set to kickoff Saturday night May 10th at the famed Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, WI. This night also happens to be the very popular School Bus night which traditionally brings a large crowd to the high banks for an interesting twist on racing and entertainment. Local schools are out in force to root on their buses and drivers, and the FANSFund team will be there to start raising funds and kickoff the driver voting.

2014 will continue with much of what has made this such a popular event for fans, drivers and sponsors. Fans making a monetary donation are allowed to vote and have their say in what drivers get invited. The ever popular FANSFund Luncheon, for those that make an eligible donation, will be on Saturday of the USA Nationals at 11:30 AM. At the luncheon fans get a personal meet and greet with the drivers they voted in, a nice lunch, a FANSFund t-shirt, and eligibility for other numerous door prizes.

This year also brings about some exciting changes that we believe will make this one of the best renditions of the FANSFund so far:

1. FANSFund Dash: Drivers voted in this year will now race for their share of the money raised in the form of a 12 lap FANSFund Dash. The dash is planned for Friday night right before the NASCAR Late Model feature. The plan is for a structured purse based on the total funds raised and the number of drivers invited. Our goal is to invite 8-10 total drivers to compete in this dash (6-7 Regular FANSFund drivers and 2-3 All Star drivers). Minimum start money is targeted to be at least $1,000. Drivers will line up based on votes with the highest vote earner from the Regular FANSFund Driver category starting on the pole, All Star drivers will start in the back of the field based on their votes. We are looking for a title sponsor for this race so if you know of someone that might want to come onboard as a sponsor please contact us at CLSFANSFund@Yahoo.com. Sample purses can be found on the right sidebar of the website.

2. Mileage Distance: For 2014 new drivers being voted in will need to live at least 400 miles away. This mileage limit will be waived for the All Star drivers. Actual mileage will be calculated on Google Maps using the driver’s documented home town to Cedar Lake Speedway.

3. Fan Donations: Donation amounts will still be $5 per vote but the minimum donation amount to be eligible for the FANSFund Luncheon, t-shirt and door prizes will be $30 this year. Those donating at least $30 will also receive free admission to the indoor race that is scheduled in the Cedar Lake Arena Saturday afternoon right after the FANSFund Luncheon.

These changes are being made to enhance the Fan experience with a new race format, recruit new drivers that are outside our regional area and expose them to this great event with hopes that they’ll return for years to come, and to continue to provide a quality FANSFund Luncheon experience for those that donate the minimum amount. Checkout the FANSFund website at www.FANSFund.com for more information. There is also a FANSFund FAQS link on the right sidebar of the website for more information about the format of the event.

We are still looking for sponsors so if you know of anyone that may be interested in supporting us at a sponsorship level please send us an email at CLSFANSFund@Yahoo.com.

Donations can be made online at www.FANSFund.com/donations/ or by clicking on the Donate tab from the home page. Donations and voting will start May 10, 2014 with voting ending at midnight July 13, 2014. Donations will be accepted through July 30, 2014 but donors will no longer be able to vote after July 13th.

The 27th running of the USA Nationals is slated for July 31st through August 2nd. Order your tickets now at “Wisconsin’s Fastest Piece of Real Estate.” Go online to order your tickets and/or campsite today at www.CedarLakeSpeedway.com.

2013 EDITION OF FANSFund FINISHES STRONG

August 6th, 2013

New Richmond, WI (August 6, 2013): This year’s edition of the USA Nationals and FANSFund certainly finished on a strong note. The racing was exciting all weekend long; we had a first time, and very deserving, USA Nationals winner with Tim McCreadie taking home the $50K along with the prestigious Eagle trophy that goes with it; and a flurry of activity around the FANSFund which had an anonymous donor come on board for the FANSFund Thursday morning that wanted all drivers that entered the World of Outlaw portion of the show to receive $50 in the form of a Cedar Lake Speedway Gift Certificate, how cool is that!

This year 14 drivers were invited to attend the USA Nationals with support of the FANSFund. The following 13 drivers, that were able to make it, split a Fund of $16,900 for a cool $1,300 per driver: Clay Fisher, DeWitt, AK; Timothy Culp, West Monroe, LA; Brett Swedberg, Shawano, WI; Dan Stone, Thompson, PA; Kevin Weaver, Gibson City, IL; the father/son team of Donnie Moran and Devin Moran, Dresden, OH; Ross Camponovo, Clarksdale, MS; Ronnie Lee Hollingsworth, Northport, AL; Jared Hawkins, Fairmont, WV; Nick Anvelink, Bonduel, WI; Bobby Pierce, Oakwood, IL; and Jonathan Davenport, Blairsville, GA. Unfortunately Jesse Stovall’s motor, that he needed to be competitive at Cedar Lake, was not completed in time for him to make the tow up here. Although this was unfortunate for Jesse, the other drivers reaped the benefit of splitting his share to receive an additional $100.

The always popular FANSFund luncheon was held at 11:00 AM Saturday in the jam packed Cedar Lake Arena. Fans, Sponsors, and Drivers, their families, and Crew were in attendance where each of the drivers was introduced, asked to say a few words, and presented their money. Everyone in attendance received lunch, a FANSFund t-shirt, a personal meet-and-greet with the FANSFund Drivers, and were eligible for numerous door prizes which consisted of door panels, driver and sponsor t-shirts, a helmet, die-cast cars, etc. Thank you to Cedar Lake Speedway and their staff for providing the luncheon, all of the FANSFund volunteers that helped, and the drivers and sponsors that contributed door prizes.

THANK YOU to our sponsors for helping make the FANSFund and luncheon a great success! When you have the opportunity please make sure to patronize and thank them for their support: Pepsi, Cedar Lake Speedway, Badger Storage and Excavating, Johnson Motor Sales, NDT Solutions, NextGen Companies/CarQuest, Casey Farms, Jasper Racing Engines and Transmissions, and Dirt Late Model Magazine. We truly appreciate their support and couldn’t do this without them!

To find out more about our sponsors please go to the Contributors page at: www.fansfund.com/contributors.

Overall the 2013 edition of the USA Nationals and FANSFund was a huge success. With it now behind us, and as we start to plan for next year, it’s time for the team to take a look back and assess what went well, what didn’t, and what we can do different to make the 2014 edition of the FANSFund even better. Check back to our website periodically or like us on Facebook to stay abreast of things as they develop during the racing offseason.
