MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY RELEASES DETAILS OF CHARITABLE GIVING THROUGH THE 2016 SEASON!!

MTS raised almost $24,000 for organizations and fans via the "MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY 50/50 FUNdraiser" during the 2016 season!


Since it's grand opening in the spring of 2009, one of the main efforts of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has been to try to "GIVE BACK" to those organizations and/or charities that populate the area surrounding what we feel is one of the greatest 1/3-Mile dirt tracks in the upper mid-west.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY owners Bob & Paula Timm and Tom & Tina Lockner know that race fans are a supportive group . . . given the opportunity to have a little fun while, at the same time, providing out-of-pocket support for a local charity -- they'll gladly open their purse or wallet and get involved.

Through this understanding of the generosity and support of local race fans, the owners & representatives of MTS came up with the concept of the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY 50/50 FUNdraiser!

During the 2016 campaign of the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY 50/50 FUNdraiser (DESPITE 8 rain outs and 1 bye week - at which times MTS was closed and unable to raise funds via the program) MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY was so honored to present almost $12,000 to organizations AND race fans!

That's almost $24,000 in total ($23,532 to be exact) . . .
