A 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be sent off to a new home following the 45th annual Jamestown Speedway Stock Car Stampede. According to The Jamestown Sun, the 2016 Camaro pace car will be raffled off to benefit the Jamestown Regional Medical Center Home Health and Hospice.
Head flagman, Brian Smith, stated his father was only given three months to live. Due to the car eprovided by the Jamestown “angels”, as his father, Lloyd Smith, dubbed them, he lived an additional six months.
“The VA doctors gave dad three months (to live),” said Smith. “He made nine months, and there’s a reason he made nine months. It was the care that these girls gave.”
Now, Smith wants to give back. Jamestown Speedway will sell 4,000 tickets for its Stock Car Stampede at $40 a piece. All proceeds will reach the JRMC when the 2016 Camaro finds a new home this September. There will also be cash prizes and drawings.
“The best chance for people to win cash is right now,” Smith said. “Come on out, enjoy the races and maybe win some cash or a Camaro in September.”
