Bill Bridges Benefit Race Report

Bill Bridges Benefit Race Report

We 1st told you about this special race that was going to be held for Bill back in May.  The event was ran last weekend and was a huge success and Team Losi Racing files this report.

The Bill Bridges Benefit race was at “The Track” in Carleton, Michigan this past weekend. This is Bill’s home outdoor track in the summer. The classes raced consisted of both electric and nitro and the event had more than 300 entries. It was amazing to see so many racers and manufactures come together for this great cause. Racing started at 9am. and the mains finished just before 2am. The event raised a substantial amount of money which will help Bill and his family in the months to come. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success!

A message from Bill’s wife Chrissy:

“I want to thank everyone that came out to the benefit race this weekend. We are beyond blessed to have you in our lives and to be able to call you friends. A heavy burden has been lifted off of our family. It meant so much to Bill to see so many people rooting for him. This race did wonders for his spirits!! RC Racers pulled together for an amazing event!! We will be forever grateful!!”
