Dragster Displayed at Speedway Community Event


What a great grassroots community event that the Capitol Auto Group Dragster was a part of this past Saturday! The community came out in droves including the Eugene television stations KMTR who filmed our car, KEZI and KVAL, along with our friends at radio station KRKT to support the motorsports extravaganza birthday bash for Thomas Radley, a 14-year-old who sadly has stage 4 bone cancer.

Everyone from all walks of life came out to the Willamette Speedway from families, classic car people, stock car fans, and even the once-maligned biker crowd (who I had not heard about in years) showed up but bless their hearts they came peacefully to support Thomas!

At noon, these one-time outlaw bikers started and revved up their bikes and joined others to wave as a parade of Police SUVS, the county SWAT team, the local Fire Department, marine rescue operations, a long limo, and finally, a McLaren containing the birthday boy himself entered the facility and made a lap around the giant parking lot. Over 1,100 cars were on display. We fired up the Capitol Auto Group Dragster twice and the interest in the car was great all day long. We also presented the last shirt and publicity picture I had from last season to Thomas.

This was a good opportunity to make sure the car was running correctly and everything worked well before heading to the track in a few weeks. This event was a real hootenanny that will be remembered for some time even though we wish it wasn't for this reason and wish Thomas the best with more birthdays to come. Thanks to Brent Sanford and Dave Morris for their help at this event. Job well done!
