A Wicked Good Time For A Wicked Good Cause This Weekend at New Hampshire

If you happen to be heading to New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend to catch the New England 300, you won't want to miss out on some other great events happening right on the track that will all benefit a great local cause - Speedway Children's Charities.

You can bid on NASCAR experiences and racing memorabilia during the Wicked Good Live Auction, taking place on Saturday September 24th from 6:00 - 8:30 at the Miller Lite Lobster Lounge. Up for bid will be autographed sheet metal, racing gear, Ride of A Lifetime parade laps, garage passes (I've been there, and it is awesome to see  the cars so close up), New England sports memorabilia and more!

More of a thrill seeker? On Friday, September 23rd from 11am - 6pm you can take a helicopter ride courtesy of JBI Helicopter Services for $60.00 per person, weather permitting. You must be 18 or older and show proof of age. Just buy your ticket at the SCC tent located at the Helipad, which is just outside turn 3. Cash or credit cards (Visa, MC) will be accepted. You'll get a birds eye view of the track!

If you hurry, you and some team members can take part in the NRA Foundation Charity Clay Shoot on Thursday, September 22nd from 9am - 4pm. Cost for teams is $1000 and individuals are $300 each. Registration includes the clay shoot,  golf cart, ammuniton, a post event dinner and awards ceremony. To sign up call Cheryl LaPrade at 603-513-5738 or email her at [email protected].

And finally during every race a group of volunteers will be passing around the SCC red buckets during the Red Bucket Brigade. Last year fans donated  over $250,000 to beneift 60 local charities and youth organizations! Way to go fans!
