SCCT Kids Dash For Cash Update - Tulare, Stockton, Calistoga

The Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards would like to send a special thanks to Gary Scelzi, Harley Van Dyke and Dan Monhoff with M&M Structures, who have all lent their support to the Kids Dash for Cash this season!

Scelzi joins Owen Larson Racing to help sponsor the Friday April 21 Peter Murphy Classic in Tulare, while Van Dyke joins the San Joaquin Asparagus Festival to sponsor the May 27 event in Stockton. M&M Structures will join Rico Abreu Racing to sponsor the June 24 event at Calistoga Speedway.

All three of those events will now feature 4,000 nickels available to the youngsters! Van Dyke has also added towards championship night, boosting it up to $750 worth of nickels and quarters that will be tossed out!

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presents Kids Dash for Cash will work as follows:

Each night a limited number of kids, ages four to ten, will have the opportunity to head on track (time permitting) just before the Dash draw for sprint car drivers. At that point a minimum of 2000 nickels will be dropped on the racetrack and the youngsters will have a chance to pick up and keep as many coins as they can. If time becomes an issue the Kids Dash for Cash will be held at a selected area near the grandstands.

The plan is for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour social team to have wrist bands available at a pre-designated area, and the kids that acquire them will be allowed to participate. The hope is to have a different set of children at each race.

Each child participating will also receive a custom water bottle courtesy of Light up the World Beverages. Light up the World Beverages bottles are great for birthday parties, gender reveal parties and any type of special event or celebration.
