Speedway helps Relay For Life

SANDS – The Sands Speedway is encouraging fans, drivers and crews to donate and walk the track on Saturday night as a run-up to the annual Relay For Life of Marquette County.

Donations of $5 per person or $20 per family will be accepted at the track and those pledging are encouraged to walk the track as a “mini Relay For Life” in memory of someone they know who has been affected by cancer. This event is set to take place at the conclusion of the day’s auto racing schedule at around 7:30 or 8 p.m.

Funds collected will be contributed to the Relay For Life of Marquette County the following Saturday, June 12, to be held at Al Quaal Recreation Area in Ishpeming.

Time trials begin at 3:30 p.m. and racing at 5 p.m. at the track, located off M-553 south of the Marquette County Fairgrounds in Sands Township.
