This off season has been a tough one for the Riverhead Raceway family. So many good people have passed away this winter and spring, too many to list.
This week another long time supporter of so many Riverhead Raceway teams passed away, Dan Jones.
Here is a quote from Justin Bonsignore NASCAR WMT driver who was on the receiving end of so much help from Dan.
“Dan Jones was all about helping everyone whether it was with painting body panels, or buying tires and parts. Since Riverhead is going to honor him with a May 12th 30 lap Legend Car race I am going to put up an additional $251 to the winner of the race. There is no better way to honor Danny than to do what he would do, pay it forward! If you feel the same and want to contribute, message me”
Justin already has raised additional money for the winner of the race and will be raising money until the May 12th. He will be at Riverhead May 5th looking to raise more money. Justin will also looking to land a INEX Legends car ride for the race so he can be in the Dan Jones Memorial race himself honoring his long time friend.
Timmy Solomito has also joined in supporting the race through his company Natural Designs donating an over-sized winners check for the feature event winner of next weekends race!
If you see Justin at Riverhead do as he is doing, give a few dollars to pay it forward in memory of Dan Jones.
Update: Justin has let us know that almost $1,000.00 has been added to the winners payout plus there will be additional money for second place, third place and fast time.
