It is a little known fact that the Drag Racing Association of Women paid out $220,000 in 2010. The $220,000 helped provide a one time aid to injured racers and their families in the year 2010 during a time of need. When you consider the number of drag racing vehicles that make a pass on various forms of drag strips in the United States the number of injuries are rather small. It is true that the number of injuries is rather small, but the impact is rather large to those who suffer an injury while participating in the sport of drag racing. Some racers just need a one time aid to get back on their feet while other requires several months of aid to recover. Events like the upcoming Annual Florida Golf Tournament in Gainesville, Florida held in conjunction with the NHRA Tire Kingdom Nationals provide aid to injured racers. This event is a fun filled day of golfing held the Wednesday prior to the NHRA Tire Kingdom Nationals at Ironwood Golf Course in Gainesville, Florida. Another exciting event includes the Annual Spring Auction which will be held this year at Englishtown, New Jersey in conjunction with the NHRA event held in Englishtown, New Jersey. The last fundraising event of the year is the Dallas Fall auction held in conjunction with the NHRA event in Dallas, Texas. Plus, you can purchase DRAW t-shirts, jewelry, cookbooks and more at the DRAW booth. The DRAW booth is located on the manufacturer’s midway at all NHRA national events.
Another exciting event that will take place at the NHRA Tire Kingdom Nationals in Gainesville, Florida during March is the first D.R.A.W. Board Meeting of 2011.
