INDEPENDENCE, Iowa – Three Wide Media is teaming up with Karsyn’s Krusaders to sponsor the Saturday, June 21 weekly racing program at Independence Motor Speedway.
A number of promotions will be part of the June 21 event to help raise awareness and money for the fight against cancer.
An “ultimate fan package” raffle will be conducted throughout the evening, offering the winner a two night/three day stay, plus Karsyn’s Krusaders merchandise, a free subscription to Dirt Late Model or Dirt Modified magazine, gift cards and much more.
Karsyn’s Krusaders merchandise will also be available for purchase, plus a number of items will be thrown into the stands throughout the evening.
The one-of-a-kind KK grill car will be on display and pace the five features. Cancer survivors will drop the green flag to start the five feature events.
June 21 is also the Saturday Showcase for the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod division. Increased prize money will be up for grabs in that division, which will be a weekly points race following normal qualifying procedures.
Gates open at 4 p.m. on June 21, with hot laps at 6 and racing to follow.
Grandstand admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Kids ages 11 and under will be admitted free if accompanying a paid adult. Pit passes are $25.
Karsyn’s Krusaders is a not-for-profit charity started in 2010 by Andy and Jessica Miller to raise money and awareness of cancer, with a focus on childhood cancer. Karsyn’s Krusaders is a dirt track automotive racing-based cancer charity that works with drivers, race tracks and race fans across the country.
The charity’s motto, “Kickin’ Cancer’s Butt One Lap at a Time,” the logo and name is based on the Millers’ daughter Karsyn who was diagnosed with high risk leukemia at age three in 2008. Karsyn was successfully treated and today is a vibrant little girl who continues to be the inspiration for the charity that helps children and their families across the country.
