6th Annual
Shane Hammond Memorial Race
The NEMA field will be paced by Hammond's mother wheeling his original #37 midget.

Hello Racers, Friends, Fans & Family,

The retired Shane Hammond 37 will pace the field at Thompson for the NEMA, Shane Hammond Memorial Race on October 17. This will be the first time the memorial race is being held at Thompson since Shane's crash. Many of you were there when the season opened on April 5/6, 2008. This race is more than special. Shane was an awesome shoe, relaxed,with a gleaming smile and a good word for all. He had his share of mechanicals and DNF's but it never wore him down. He loved racing, no matter if he was on or off the track, it was his life, it was the blood in his veins.

Shane's memory is living on through The Shane Hammond Believe Foundation which has been assisting racers of all divisions from the young karter to the old timers to think safety first. We ask that your donation be made to the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation so we may continue to strive for safety for all. Racing is a dangerous sport but as a racer we push that aside. It's the thrill, the rush, the calmness we may feel when we are behind the wheel; on any track, on any day, at any speed. It's who we are, we are part of a racing family.

Please visit the Shane Hammond Believe Foundation booth at Thompson during the Sunoco World Series. Introduce yourself, check out the 37, on display, purchase a memorial shirt or the book that story begins on April 6, 2008; Track Rat.

No matter if you knew Shane or not, if you're involved in racing you understand safety and know how important it is to have an organization like this, that can extend help to all racers near and far.

We look forward to seeing you and if you're interested in being a sponsor for this race, please contact us ASAP. Our shirts are in the final process to be printed. See you at the track.

The Shane Hammond Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was started by Shane’s mother Deb, after Shane lost his life in a racing accident at Thompson Speedway. The purpose of the organization is to help offset the cost of safety equipment for the drivers, regardless of what type of racing they participate in.

This year to help with the fundraising efforts and to help keep this foundation going strong, the Tri State Kart Club has decided to sell laps for the Box Stock Clone money race, with ALL the lap money going to the foundation.

Laps will be sold for $10. This will be a 37 lap feature race, with Pomfret Speedway sponsoring
the Victory Lap.

If interested in supporting this great foundation, please fill out the bottom portion of this form and return it with your payment to the Tri State Kart Club- P.O. Box 247, Pomfret Center, CT 06259 or give it to Lisa Avedisian. If you have any questions please contact Lisa at

Thank you for your Support!
