Prelude to the Dream race has been a big hit with fans, drivers; big help for Feed the Children

 

Eight years ago NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, who also is the owner of Eldora Speedway in the Darke County city of Rossburg, Ohio, came up with an idea of having an All-Star race with drivers from all phases of auto racing to entertain fans and to also help the Feed the Children charity.

It is now 2012, and the race has become bigger than even Stewart could’ve visioned.

He is getting drivers to give up an “off-day” to participate in the race; the race is televised on HBO Pay-per-View to a national audience; the race attracts crowds of 20,000-plus; hundreds of thousands of dollars is being raised and the media has jumped on board as well. I was told there was between 100-150 members of the media covering last night’s race.

Also, everybody donates their time: drivers, pit crews and TV announcers.

All of this in the tiny town of Rossburg, which is located between Versailles and Greenville. Rossburg is actually a village of 250 people. It is home to Eldora Speedway, a half-mile clay oval track.

Feed the Children charity is the beneficiary of the Prelude race. The non-profit organization is based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It’s mission is “delivering food, medicine, clothing and any necessities to individuals in need, children, families who don’t have life’s essentials due to natural diasaters, war and poverty.

All of the money from the Pay-per-View telecast on HBO, is donated to Feed the Children.

Fans who attend the Prelude race, donate five cans or more of nonperishable food when they entered the track last night, received a free Feed the Children Prelude to the Dream poster.

All of the drivers, who finished in the top10 of the 40-lap race, Feed the Children will send a truck of goods to their hometown or any city of their choice. Tony Stewart, who finished second last night, said that he’s going to donate his part of the proceeds to the village of Rossburg.

Not only do the fans see the top motor sports drivers race the late model cars, the modifieds and stock cars that run regularly at Eldora, provide the undercard racing. Their are hot laps as warmups for the motor sports veterans.

The 2012 race increased the laps from 30 to 40 in the feature race and used double-file restarts.

The only drivers to race in every Prelude includes Tony Stewart, Ron Capps, Cruz Pedregon, Kenny Wallace and Kenny Schrader.
