Thanks to a great effort by NASCAR WMT driver Justin Bonsignore the INEX Legends at Riverhead Raceway will have their biggest purse of the season. The race will be a memorial race that will honor Justin’s long time friend and supporter the late Dan Jones of Blue Point Auto-body.
The last 2 weeks Justin has collected purse and bonus money that will make this memorial race a $1,000.00 to win 30 lap feature with many bonus payouts.
Our racing family is a close one and in times of trouble or times of need we pull together and support each other. This is one of those times when we honor a man who supported so many drivers at Riverhead Raceway for so many years.
Here is the statement put out tonight by Justin with the details of the prize money and those who contributed.
“Tomorrow we get to honor a friend to so many, we get to pay it forward to others like Danny did for so many. I want to wish the best of luck to all the competitors racing in this great event. Here are all the details of the bonuses, along with a complete list of amazing people who helped us make this happen. We tried to incorporate all
the special numbers from Danny’s racing, whether it was his #28 enduro truck, or his grandson’s #7 from karting days, to the #24 of his current Legend car team. We also cannot thank Timmy Solomito & Natural Design Concepts & Apparel for donating the oversize winners check, and amazing trophy. He knocked it out of the park.
Hard Luck (Last Place): $125
Hard Charger (Most Positions Gained from Start): $100
Lap 7 Leader: $100
Lap 28 Leader: $100
24th Place Qualifier: $50
I also would like to thank everyone who donated to this great race.
Artie Pedersen Jr. – Pederson CheckerWon Motorsports
Vinny Delaney – VDR Cuts
Ken Vogel Jr. & The Vogel Family
Dave Schneider – In Memory of his Mother Eileen
Along with a few anonymous donations
I truly appreciate everything everyone has done, and all the kind words people have spoken, Dan was the greatest person I ever met.
*Side note, if the weather doesn’t cooperate, I am told they will reschedule this event, so we will adjust if needed*
Good luck all, and god bless!
Lets hope Mother Nature cooperates and we get to remember and honor the late Danny Jones.
