KRFK Norway WKA Manufacture Cup Report

For the third time this season, Kids Racing for Kids made and effort to make a difference by donating another $4,000. Laurie McLaughlin of LaSalle County Child Advocacy Center was the recipient for the WKA Manufacturer’s Cup event at the Concept Hauler Motor Speedway last weekend

“I was very happy that Laurie decided to bring her friends and family along to watch some practice sessions and take a tour of the pits with me,” said Caroline Lobaugh, General Manager of KRFK. “One of the reasons we like to present checks at the tracks is so we can expose our sport to families in the same area.”

Tommy Anderson and Kyle Kalish were on location to donate the giant check to the LaSalle County CAC. Jeremy Remick and Kevin Monteith were not present after the drivers meeting. McLaughlin brought picture frames she made herself with a “Thank you” note in each one. At the end of the year, one driver will receive a gift from KRFK for donating the most money in their name. So far, Anderson is in the lead with a total of $3,000 donated this racing season!

KRFK would also like to congratulate the following winners from Saturday’s junior classes:

Shawn Sharkey – HPV Jr. Lite
Gresham Wagner – Cadet Jr. Sportsman
Zach Busch – Yamaha Jr. Heavy
Kyle Kalish – Yamaha Jr. Sportsman

These drivers will donate the $4,000 to a yet to be determined child advocacy center during the next WKA Manufactures Cup event at the New Castle Motorsport Park. These centers provide one central location where kids can be interviewed in a safe and friendly environment. They are privately owned and are in need of donations to keep helping children who have been abused.

Event sponsors and class sponsors are continued to be sought out to contribute to the total amount donated and any little bit counts.
