Dash for Cash Charity Run

Come join Wide Open Throttle Mustang, Cape Fear Corvette Club and Cape Fear Z club as we hold “Dash for Cash” charity auto run hosted by National Speed of Wilmington on Saturday, October 10th. This is a “Bull Run” style event. The object is to locate 6 points in the southeastern area with only “vague” instructions/directions. The car that completes the course in the shortest amount of time wins the event. The winner will collect ½ the entry fee money and the other ½ will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Our goal is to collect $750 dollars for our charity. This event is also sponsored by H&R Block of Jacksonville and Brooklyn Pizza of Wilmington.

Here is how the “Dash for Cash” event will go. At the starting point (National Speed) each driver/co driver will be given a card with very little information but just enough to be able to find the check point. For example, Food Lion Parking lot Near River area Jacksonville, look for Red Cobra. Once you and your co driver find this check point you will get a new set of vague directions to the next check point and so on. The car with the quickest time wins right? Nope, here is the twist, at National Speed we will have a PS3 game systems set with either “Need for Speed” or “Grand Turismo” (you will not know until you get there). All co drivers will use the same car and run the same course making 3 laps. Each co-driver’s time after completing 3 laps will be added to the team’s run time for their total time!! On top of that the co-driver with the fastest over all game time will win $100 for themselves.
