The ever popular FANSFund luncheon was held Saturday afternoon August 1st at 12:30 in the Cedar Lake Arena with our sponsors, fans and the FANSFund drivers and their crews in attendance. This was another fun event with those in attendance receiving a FANSFund t-shirt, a nice lunch, an up close meet and greet and autograph session with the drivers, and were eligible for numerous door prizes, including driver door panels and numerous other driver t-shirts, hats, etc. At the luncheon the drivers were brought up one by one, received their pay for the FANSFund Dash, asked to say a few words, and draw some raffle tickets which allowed many of our fans to go home with some extra memorable door prizes. Thank you to the drivers and sponsors that donated the items for the raffle.
