Blaney Plans Benefit Race

Hubert Platt’s “Georgia Shaker” will headline the Blaney Drag Strip’s post-season Pro Stock Meet Saturday with all proceeds going to the J. C. Phillips Benefit Fund.

Phillips, a professional racer, was seriously injured in a racing mishap earlier this year at Balney when his driveshaft broke and severed the brake lines, causing Phillip to run off the end of the race course and crash.

Due to the coller weather, this will be a daytime event with gates opening at 11:00 a.m. for time trials and racing will get underway at 3:00. Admission for this race will be $4.00, including pit pass.
