New Richmond, WI (July 9, 2017): After a great weekend of fundraising the FANSFund has surged past $22,000! As we move into the last week of voting, Cornelius, North Carolina’s G.R. Smith has jumped to the top of the “New Driver” category voting followed by Justin Duty, Dale McDowell, Hudson O’Neal and Austin Hubbard rounding out the top 5. Decorah, Iowa’s Tyler Bruening heads up the voting in the “At Large Driver” category followed by Brian Shirley, Jason Feger, Tim McCreadie and Bobby Pierce in the top 5. Current voting can be found at the Driver Voting link on the website.

With just one week left for voting make sure to go online to donate and vote for the drivers you’d like to see be part of this year’s FANSfund. We’ve raised enough money to invite 12 drivers but 13 or 14 are certainly within reach if we can have a big push of donations and voting this week. Donations to the FANSFund can be made online at or by clicking on the Donate tab or link from the home page. Fans will receive 1 vote for every $5 donated. For a donation of $30 fans are eligible for the FANSFund luncheon and a FANSFund t-shirt; fans must be in attendance at the luncheon to receive a shirt as no shirts will be shipped. Voting ends at midnight July 16, 2017. Donations will be accepted through August 4, 2017 but any donations received after July 16, 2017 will not be eligible for votes or a t-shirt.
