Announcing Fourth Annual Racers Know Dave Dusick Charity Event 
Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

SPEEDWAY, IN (August 6, 2018)– The Dave Dusick Foundation is excited to once again announce the fourth annual Racers Know Dave Dusick Charity Event, coinciding with PRI 2018, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018. Moving to the most-fitting venue the foundation has hosted an event at, this year’s RKDDIV is being held at the “Racing Capital of the World,” Indianapolis Motor Speedway, on the Fourth Floor Media Center.

An opportunity to connect, mingle and have fun while making a positive impact on the community, the night features a cash bar, food stations, live entertainment by The MacDaddys, and a racing, sports and memorabilia silent auction. The DD Foundation is excited to have Cooper Tire back as a Primary Sponsor. They join other event partners in support, such as Associate Sponsor Race Monitor, Eibach Springs, Bell Helmets and RaceTrack Engineering.  

As in years past, proceeds from 2018’s event benefits the Dave Dusick Foundation, a not-for-profit entity whose mission is to provide support to families that have a child who suffers from a life-threatening or life-altering illness. Currently all of the proceeds from the DD Foundation go directly to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana.  “It’s an honor to be able to combine two of my passions, the Dave Dusick Foundation and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for one spectacular night to benefit Riley Kids,  while spreading positivity within our community, said Dusick. “The past three events have been fantastic, growing each year, and the expansion of support from friends, family and those in and out of the racing community who have helped touch the lives of children and families the foundation helps, has been incredible. I can’t thank our supporters, event partners and all those involved for the event it’s become.”

“Riley Hospital for Children is recognized as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation and is the only comprehensive children’s research hospital in the state of Indiana, stated Laura Buckner, Senior Communications Officer of Riley’s Children’s Foundation. “We could not offer that level of expert care, and depth and breadth of research, without philanthropic support. We are incredibly grateful for the volunteers, sponsors and donors of Racers Know Dave Dusick Charity Event. They are helping us deliver world-class care to sick and injured kids in Indiana.”

Noting excitement in playing host to this year’s event, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles said,“We’re proud to partner with the Dave Dusick Foundation to throw a great event in support of an even better cause. This is a fun and entertaining evening and I hope everyone will come on out to the track to support Hoosier families in need.”
