US 30 going pink on May 18 to promote breast cancer awareness 

COLUMBUS, Neb. (May 1, 2023) – Fans will wear pink and both Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds and Northern SportMods will go topless to help Abe’s US 30 Speedway promote breast cancer awareness during the Thursday, May 18 race program at Columbus. 

A 50/50 raffle and live and silent auctions are planned during the evening, with funds raised during the Pink Out The Grandstands show going to the Columbus Cancer Care Foundation, which helps provide transportation, overnight accommodations and other support to local cancer patients and their families.

“It’s going to be big,” promised Bobby Lincoln, whose wife, co-US 30 promoter and better half Janelle was diagnosed with breast cancer in January. “We’ve got probably 40-50 different people and businesses who have donated for the auctions already.” 

Modifieds race for $1,500 to win and Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifying eligibility while the Northern SportMods run for $1,000 to win. IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars run for $500 to win, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks for a top $300 check. 

Grandstand admission is $18 or $15 for fans wearing pink. Kids 10 and under get in free and pit passes are $30.
