We have a few of these toy drives in california and all of them draw good attendance. Glad to see you guys have the same thing on that part of the country... I'm sure you will draw a big # and it will only get bigger every year.

DJ, just about anything a young child woulld like will be appreciated. However, if you donate an ipod, see me first so I can donate it to myself!

Thanks for supporting this event. It really is for a good cause!

The California racers should be proud. Your efforts have inspired us to give something back as well.

That's great to hear Doug and all U east coast racers...hats off!!

BTW - I think we all as men forget that at these events, toys for girls are apperciated, we always try and remind the guys to bring something for girls as well.

D.J - If U have a donation for a date with Mel B. (Scary Spice Girl) I really think U should call me so I can PERSONALLY supervise the distribution of that donation!! (West Coast perhaps!!)

Default World Famous Chef

I have been advised that the world famous chef, Johnny Wong, will be catering this event with his famous cuisine and beverages. This alone is a great reason to attend. What a great day it is going to be, you get to spend Saturday racing and helping the kids have a better Christmas.

I just found out that Andrew Duperrouzel will be coming home from college for Christmas break late Friday night. Him and his Dad are planning on being at the Bring a Toy Challenge to help spread some Christmas cheer!!

The track is very similar to last years Series Race and enduro. It flows real good with some good places for passing. Plus, Johnny Wong and his crew have made the barriers a lot more car friendly. Hope to see you and your dad on Saturday!
