Triple Charity Challenge Benefit Go-Kart Series Announced

(Press Release from OTB Promotions)

OTB Promotions LogoIn a surprise announcement during the driver’s meeting at the DT100, a benefit go-kart race at Maine Indoor Karting, the trio of David Thomas, Jr., Josh Vanada, and Shawn Sicard have created a benefit go-kart series, dubbed the Triple Charity Challenge (TCC).

The TCC will be a three (3) race series to be held throughout New England. Drivers will earn points for attempting to qualify for each event, and bonus points for making the features in the respective events. The top point drivers in the series will receive recognition at the DT100 after-party, banquet-style, which will include trophies and prizes.

Drivers entered in the series will receive fifteen (15) bonus points for each event entered, as well as receiving points for their finishing position in the respective features at each event. A feature winner will collect 20 points, second place will nab 16 points, while third will receive 12 points. Fourth place in a feature event will net a driver 10 points, decreasing one point for each following position. The total amount of points a driver can earn will be 105 points.

Shawn Sicard, co-founder of the Race to End Vanishing White Matter Disease, had this to say about the Triple Charity Challenge. “With the effort these drivers put into these events, we thought this would be an interesting twist, raising money for three different charities, while giving the drivers something unique to compete in. This will be a true testament for the racing family to band together and support our communities.”

The first race of the TCC will take place at the Race to End Vanishing White Matter Disease, a benefit go-kart event to raise awareness and funds to battle Vanishing White Matter Disease, a rare, incurable form of Leukodystrophy. The event, created by Shawn Sicard and Jessica Chauvin, is in its second year of existence, and will run on November 8th, 2015 at Pioneer Valley Indoor Karting in West Hatfield, MA.

The second race will be the inaugural Karting to Conquer Cancer, created by OTB Promotions, to be run at On-Track Karting in Wallingford, CT. Announced just a week ago, this event has already shown promise to be successful in its first year of existence. The Karting to Conquer Cancer is scheduled for January 16, 2016, and will benefit cancer research.

The third and final event in the Triple Charity Challenge will be the DT100, held in February of 2016. The DT100, which will be in its 8th year of existence, takes place at Maine Indoor Karting in Scarborough, ME. The DT100 has raised nearly $125,000 for the New Hampshire Make-A-Wish Foundation. This will be the championship event of the TCC, and will include the crowning of the series champion, and overall top three in series points.

Bryon Callen has been appointed Director of the Triple Charity Challenge. Callen has been a part of the DT100 since inception, as well as an extensive career in motorsports, including Chief Starter at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, Lee USA Speedway, and Race Director for the Granite State Pro Stock Series. Jenn Ready will handle registration, and has been involved in many different forms of racing, including the Valenti Modified Series, Granite State Pro Stock Series, and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

Drivers MUST pre-enter to be eligible to earn series points for the Triple Charity Challenge. More details for the Triple Charity Challenge will be released as they become available. To sign up, at no extra cost, for the Triple Charity Challenge, contact Jenn Ready at [email protected].
