ELKHART LAKE, Wis., - Aug. 5, 2020 - Road America and the Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs (MCSCC) announced today that its special Spec Miata 60-minute enduro Race to Save the Children event held on Sunday, August 2nd as part of the IMSA Sportscar weekend raised $3,200 for COVID-19 relief. The Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs accepted donations through participant registration, sold T-shirts and facemasks and $10 of every entry also went to bolster the charitable cause.
In all, 51 Miata’s made the grid for the 60-minute Race to Save the Children enduro, and the majority took the checkered flag following a rainy start. Despite the wet conditions, the racing was intense, and in the end Voytek Burdzy took the win by slightly more than one second over Tyler Brown. Justin Casey was another nine seconds back to round out the podium.
“The Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs needed a venue, we needed a feature to round out the weekend schedule, and it couldn’t have worked out any better,” said Road America’s President and General Manager, Mike Kertscher. “Above all else, it’s the people and the competitors who make events such as this great, and we are very proud to play a part in hosting events that give back and help people in need. The Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs join with us in this endeavor, channeling their passion for racing into raising money for worthy causes and we appreciate everyone’s support.”
