The 2010 racing season may be over, but there is still plenty going on here at Infineon Raceway in the California wine country!
This year our IndyCar banquet, Grand Prix Salute, took place on Friday, August 20, at the beautiful Andretti Winery in Napa. SCC partnered with the Michael Andretti Foundation for a wonderful evening.
Legendary driver Mario Andretti attended this year, which made the evening even more exciting. The event was a sell-out with a waiting list and funds raised will benefit the Michael Andretti Foundation, Hanna Boys Center, and Valley of the Moon Teen Services through SCC and the Boys & Girls Club of Napa Valley. Also, on Sunday August 22, we held a charity auction in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle that gave high bidders a chance have their picture taken and take a ride around the track with their favorite driver during pre-race festivities.
Next on the calendar is the Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) Charity Challenge, October 1 - 3. This organization will once again donate all proceeds from the weekend at Infineon Raceway to Speedway Children’s Charities. Since 2004, CSRG has donated over $480,000 to SCC!
More good news...... we have formed a new relationship with a unique organization called the 24 Hours of LeMons. They are locally based and race all around the country; they have decided to donate proceeds from many of their events to our chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities.

Think that brings you up to date for now!
