What is Racers Know Dave Dusick III?

In its third year, the Racers Know Dave Dusick is a charity event during the first night of Performance Racing Industry focused on having fun and raising funds for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana. A hospital close to his heart, the event is the brainchild of the Dave Dusick Foundation’s namesake and founder, Dave Dusick. A survivor of Rhabdomyosarcoma, Dusick now uses the Dave Dusick Foundation’s platform to give back and help children and their families who suffer from a life-altering or life-threatening illness.

What do I wear?

At the Dave Dusick Foundation, and for our annual Racers Know Dave Dusick Charity Event during Performance Racing Industry, we want to have fun and we want you to have fun, too! Dress is casual. This isn’t a “black tie” event.

Please note: Some are taking the opportunity to dress up for our event, and you can, but note you don’t have to. We know that many of our supporters are coming straight from Performance Racing Industry and their Happy Hour – so casual dress is ok!


I’ve purchased tickets in advanced? What now?

Fantastic! Thank you for supporting the Dave Dusick Foundation! We can’t wait to see you there!

If you’ve already purchased tickets, you’ll enter the National (see the map above) in the front entrance and proceed to Registration to your right. Give one of the fabulous volunteers your name, and that’s it! We already have you on the list.


I haven’t purchased tickets yet? What do I do?

That’s ok! You’ll proceed to Registration to purchase your tickets, upon entering the National (see the map above). From there, turn to your right, purchase your tickets and you’re good to go!

Please note: We are expecting a large crowd, and the line to purchase tickets at the door may be lengthy at times. We will have two lines set up: cash only and credit card registration. Please be prepared to line up/pay accordingly.


I’m a social media butterfly and want to tweet/post/share what I see. How do I do that?

We love social media!
