All Proceeds From This Event Benefit the Jacob Yeates Foundation
The Jacob Yeates Foundation purpose is to provide grant money to school districts so that they can help children in their district with school related financial needs. It has a Jake fund set up at the 13 school districts in the Ozarks. These school districts have been able to help children with shoes, glasses, field trip fees, school pictures, coats, club dues, a yearbook, and many other items that a child needs but many times cannot have or participate in because of financial limits. The Jacob Yeates Foundation would like to set up a fund at as many school districts as it can in the Ozarks and beyond.
Jacob Yeates was killed in a car accident 11-25-2006. He was 17 years old. He loved to help others with a friendly smile and a helping hand. After his accident, we found that he had been helping many of his class mates with needs that they had. The Foundation was set up to continue his spirit of giving and showing someone that they were loved and someone cared about them.
The Annual Drag Race is our main fund raiser and a way to remember Jake and his love for Drag Racing. We have a lot of fun and every penny raised at this event goes to help the children in the Ozarks. Come out and watch the exhibition cars, or your family or friend. There is even a race for the family car (if you can go slow enough!).
Race Classes with entry fees and payouts:
Time Trials Only $15
1st and 2nd place Trophies for all classes, Payouts for 1st, 2nd, and semi's
We will have instruction available for training on how to safely run a car at the drag strip if requested. We would like to stress the importance of taking racing off the streets and onto the drag strip where there is a controlled environment with the drivers safety placed first.
There will be prizes provided by our generous sponsors so bring your ticket to the Jake booth to try at one of these great items.
