5th Annual
Shane Hammond Memorial Race
July 26, 2014 at The Waterford Speedbowl

-
Hello family, friends, fans, & racers,

We are very excited about the 4th annual Shane Hammond Memorial Race at the Waterford Speedbowl, Saturday, July 26.

The Hammond 37 will be on display and our trailer full of SHBF merchandise for sale.

Author Bob Englehart will be autographing the latest and greatest racing books, called "Trackrat, Memoir of a Fan" which begins that cold day in April 2008 at Thompson Speedway when Shane was taken from us.

We are excited to announce this year will be a 37 Lap Feature event for both divisions. Our 2014 shirts will be available and we are still looking for sponsors to share in this event.

We also have the following awards that need sponsors: Heat Winners, Feature Winners, Hard Charger, Hard Luck, Sportsmanship, Underdog, and Final Checkered Car.

There will be raffles and give aways in this years event and we are so excited to share all the news but we still have another week and we don't want to let everything out of the bag quite yet!

So stay tuned. Till the next time, don't drive faster than your angel can fly!

Believe,

Deb Marvuglio
Shane and Anthony's mom

37, is it just a number?
By Deb Marvuglio
The number 37, what does it mean to you? To me, it's not just a Midget that was transformed over the years from black to white to yellow & blue. The 37 was a dream that became a reality for my son, Shane. A young man who had an infectious smile and bright blue eyes.

Shane learned about risk and reward and much more by 15. An amazing karter whether it was dirt or asphalt, he had a handle on it. Fast forward to 15 and emergency brain and spine surgery where the risk is death and the reward life, but what kind of life was yet to be determined. Shane survived and with determination like no other fought through pain and the odds against him to get back to karting.

When the pain became to much he looked for a car that offered more suspension and protection from the grueling jarring of karting. NEMA that was the ticket, that was the open wheel racing of choice. Shane crewed with the Cabral's and that magical day they let him take out their car at Waterford, he beamed as he climbed out. There was one person missing that day, his grandmother (his biggest fan, Betty) and we looked at each other and he said, "she's here, she didn't miss it".

Those magic moments continue as his brother Anthony "the Bug" Marvuglio experienced that feeling at Waterford on more than one occasion. Bug has expressed, "Mom, he was in the car with me", referring to Shane. Waterford is a magical place for me and my boys.

Back to the 37, not just a number, a tribute to Shane's Grandfather, Jack Glockner a man that helped Shane live his dream every step of the way. Shane and Jack (Pa) worked side by side and Pa bought him that last 37 from Bob Bradbury another NEMA legend that was taken too soon.

So as you get ready for the Shane Hammond Memorial, please think about the risks, the rewards and the price; is it all worth it, are you making the right choices. Every race is a risk, life is a risk. Shane's last race, in the Jarret #4 was a reward to him, he felt respected, excited, and worthy. He knew he could do whatever it takes. Sometime our days don't go as planned and this one day in April, God had other plans; he took Shane out of his painful body and gave him eternal life..... For whosoever believeth.....shall have eternal life. (John 3:15)

Trackrat: Memoir of a Fan - $20 includes tax from SHBF
Paperback:
252 pages
What compels a young man or woman to spend ungodly amounts of money driving a racecar every weekend at the local track, risking life and limb at 150 miles an hour, entertaining friends and total strangers? Author editorial cartoonist Bob Englehart had to find out after witnessing the tragic wreck that killed Boston-area driver Shane Hammond at Thompson International Speedway. This non-fiction book explores a slice of American culture, the short track racing obsession, and how the author became a fan as a child, bedridden for a year by rheumatic fever with only his imagination, pencils, and watercolors to pass the time. The author writes about his parents’ divorces and remarriages during an era when divorce was rare, giving him and his brother Tim a stigma in their neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The author discovers the extraordinary motivation behind Shane Hammond’s desire to race by a chance encounter with his mother and younger brother in the pits at the last race of the season. Trackrat: Memoir of a Fan is about love of family in spite of the complexity and confusion it may involve and the author’s working class heroes on the track. This isn’t NASCAR; this is your neighbor.

SATURDAY, JULY 27th
The 4th Annual
Shane Hammond Memorial Race
Awards & Lap Boards HERE
 
         
         
         
       

Hello SHBF fans,

The SHBF will be holding its 4th annual race on July 27 at Waterford. We are looking for a corporate sponsor along with lap and special award sponsors. It is currently up in the air if we will be able to offer a dinner after the race. Donations have been limited and the fund raising that has been performed has been helping racers at many levels and divisions. We are happy that we have not had to turn away any request for safety equipment, but would love to be able to have more of an impact not only with drivers and owners but tracks to improve safety.

It's been five years since we lost Shane and we hope this year we can be more prominent in the racing communities to assist with safety and to spread the word about the foundation and our purpose. Please share this with your email lists and help spread the word. We are a 501 (3) (c) and welcome any help or inquiries.

Here is the link for the laps, finishes and special awards:

Please email or call and donations can be made out to and mailed to:
Shane Hammond Believe Foundation or SHBF
164 Anna Drive
East Bridgewater, MA 02333

Thank you for your support.

Believe,
