Hi Guys! We are racing again this Sunday at Caraway Speedway, in the 100 Lap BK Auto Limited Late Model race. Last week we only got in about 15 laps there due to rain. Hopefully we’ll have clear skies and get to run all 100 laps in this special Sunday race. Hope to see you there!
Virginia Tech head baseball coach, Pete Hughes, is a friend of AB Motorsports. He instills in his team the importance of giving back, and each year the Hokie baseball players shave their heads to support and raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Between now and next Monday (10/8/12), we would LOVE Annabeth fans to contribute to this good cause. You don’t have to shave your head (!), but you can donate by clicking this link: http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/9105/2012 , then click the “Make A Donation” button, and follow the prompts. If you want to, you can put “Your Name + ABM” in the Recognition Information box, to let them know we are supporting them.
No donation is too small. As Coach Hughes tells his players, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” We are all truly blessed. To our almost 6,000 facebook fans, thank you for considering donating to this wonderful organization.
