Default 11/7 & 11/14 MBR Speed Shop Toys For Tots Turkey Trot Races - Salem VA

Itís that time of year again! This should be a good time for a great cause!



In the past the MBR Compound in Salem, VA has run the Toys For Tots Turkey Trot charity event, however due to the recent rain/flooding the Compound is in bad shape. The good news is that this year with the MBR Speed Shop open, there will be 2 events indoors instead of just one!

-------------------------------------------------------

11/7/2015 - Indoor Carpet Offroad Race - MBR Speed Shop


Tentative Classes:
4WD Open Buggy
2WD Open Buggy
2WD SCT
Kids

Maybe others depending on entries - 3 make a class

Entry fee is a $15 toy donation PER CLASS

Cars MUST BE CLEAN! They WILL be inspected before hitting the track. The usual Speed Shop offroad tire rules will be suspended.

The only traction compounds allowed are SXT and Muddslide!

DIRECT LINK TO THE EVENT ON FACEBOOK

-------------------------------------------------------

11/14/2015 - Onroad Race - MBR Speed Shop


Tentative Classes:
12th Scale 13.5
12th Scale 17.5
17.5 Rubber Tire TC
VTA
F1

3 cars make a class

Entry fee is a $15 toy donation PER CLASS

The only traction compounds allowed are SXT and Muddslide!

DIRECT LINK TO THE EVENT ON FACEBOOK

-------------------------------------------------------

Other Info:
  • Toy donations by racers will be matched by a local business to double the amount of gifts we are able to donate!
  • Run 1 race or run both. They are separate events!
  • Hotel info will be provided. Gonna try and get some special rates
  • For both events you will need to bring your own tables/chairs/power cords/etc.
  • More info such as times to come!

If you plan to attend either race please post which events and what classes so we can start to get a head count.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will monitor this thread.

What are the toy ranges for the kids? I was thinking Lego for boys and something for girls. Also, do they have to be wrapped? I'm thinking no?
