Fun Ford Weekend Will Offer Rides in Race Cars to Benefit Boys & Girls Club

Jupiter, Fla. (September 12, 2012) Fun Ford Weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway this Saturday, September 15, will play host to a benefit fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. Palm Beach County locals and race fans alike can experience an adrenaline pumping thrill of a lifetime by purchasing rides in a race car whereby all proceeds will be donated to the organization.

Fans participation in the fundraiser will not only give them the opportunity to ride along in a race car, but enter them into a drawing to win prizes donated by Gordon & Doner, the Palm Beach World Offshore Championship and Brio Tuscan Grille. Palm Beach International Raceway’s Fun Ford Weekend fundraiser will allow fans to purchase a ride in a race car on the road course, drag strip or sessions of go-karting to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club – the more activities in which they participate will increase their chances to win the prizes.

These prizes include, a home theater Flat Screen Television, donated by the law firm of Gordon & Doner, which will be awarded to the fundraiser’s most active participant; a $500 Gift Card donated by Brio Tuscan Grille in Palm Beach Gardens for a dinner for ten; and ten "Pier Passes" to the Palm Beach World Offshore Championship.

Palm Beach International Raceway has partnered with the Miss Geico Race Team hosting the Palm Beach World Offshore Championship power boat races taking place October 18-21. The team has donated ten premier viewing passes as prizes for the fundraiser on Saturday. These passes will provide access to the Juno Pier for best vantage point to watch dozens of 50 ft. power boats race at speeds over 170 mph off the coast between Juno Beach Pier and Carlin Park.

The Fun Ford Weekend Fundraiser benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County will take place throughout the day on Saturday, September 15 at Palm Beach International Raceway. Fans can purchase rides in a race car on the road course and on drag strip for $15 at stations set up at both tracks starting at 11:00 a.m. Go-Karting sessions can be purchased for $30 at the MRP Motorsport Karting Center.
