New Richmond, WI (June 21, 2016): After a successful weekend of fundraising and some sponsor money coming in the FANSFund now sits at $10,550. With just under 4 weeks to go until voting ends, the driver voting is continuing to take shape. Jon Henry of Ada, OH has jumped into the lead; Brian Shirley of Chatham, IL continues to hang tough in 2nd; Ricky Thornton Jr of Chandler, AZ leaped up to 3rd; Jason Papich from Arroyo Grande, CA moved up to 4th; and Chris Madden of Gray Court, SC now rounds out the top 5. For the full breakdown of driver voting checkout the diver voting link on our website. You can also checkout the drivers that have shown interest in participating in this year’s FANSFund by going to the drivers interested list on the site.
Fans can go online to donate and vote at www.FANSFund.com/donations/ or by clicking on the Donate tab from the home page. For every $5.00 donated fans receive 1 vote. For a $30.00 donation fans are eligible to attend the FANSFund Luncheon where they’ll receive a FANSFund T-shirt, be able to meet the FANSFund drivers and get their autographs, receive a nice lunch, and be eligible for other raffle prizes. The Luncheon will be held Saturday August 6th at 12:30 PM in the Cedar Lake Arena. Voting ends at midnight July 17, 2016 but donations will be accepted through August 4, 2016. After July 17th, donors will no longer be able to vote, or be eligible for the luncheon or T-shirt.
The FANSFund team will be back out in force doing 50/50 and taking fan donations and driver votes on Friday July 8th and Saturday July 9th when the very popular World of Outlaw Sprint Cars come to town for 2 big nights of high flying action. This is another great event that you won’t want to miss!
