Lee, NH (April 4, 2009) — During these tough economic times, even the
owners of Lee USA Speedway, Red and Judy MacDonald, recognize how
financially tough it is for racers and fans. They have taken steps to help
the fan and competitor as well as those faced with unemployment.
Already in place for this season are $10 admission prices for regular
events, cost cutting coupon books to save weekly race teams higher pit
admittance costs when higher priced touring shows come to Lee, and now a
stimulus plan for the unemployed parent who might be out of work and can't
take his or her family out for a night at the races.
"We know it's tough out there and we know that many of our fans that
patronized us last year may not be in the same position this year," said
track manager Bob Watson. "So we have created a way to bring the family to
the races, on us."
Here's how it works. "Any head of family that has been laid off (unemployed)
since January 1, 2009, are asked to send along proof of unemployment, (a
copy) include their name, address, age, phone number, family names, so we
can welcome them to the speedway, we'll have a weekly drawing for two
winning families (up to six people) and the families selected will be
invited to the races on the MacDonald's."said Watson.. The Lee stimulus plan
will start with the first Friday program May 1. Two families will be drawn
weekly throughout the season.
Lee will kick off an exciting 23 event schedule on the first of May with the
NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and a six in one program starting at 7:15
PM. Additional information is available at www.leeusaspeedway.com.
