The fundraiser of the Race for the Cure ended on Sunday August 19th with the best edition of all three as $10,000 was collected.
Samantha Marshall and Linda Sauvé, each left Cornwall Motor Speedway peedway with $5,000, both in battle with cancer and receiving treatments at the Cornwall Hospital. During the ceremony, local DIRTcar racer Brianna Ladouceur decided to donate $1,000 from her purse, boosting to $5,500 to the two recipients.
Again, a huge thank you to Steve and Wendy Morris with their involvement in the Series and fundraiser making it so successful.
