Memorial Race to Celebrate
The Life of Shane Hammond
Brockton, MA - The North East Midget
Association, in conjunction with the Shane
Hammond Believe Foundation, is proud to announce
the first annual Shane
Hammond Memorial race at Waterford Speedbowl on
Saturday, July 24th to celebrate the life
of the 27 year old racer, who was killed in
April of 2008 on lap three of Thompson
International Speedway's Icebreaker.
Shane Hammond foundation was founded after
Hammond’s tragic and untimely death at the
Thompson Speedway Icebreaker in April of 2008.
Deb Marvuglio, Hammond’s mother, and the driving
force behind the Foundation, started the effort
with two primary concepts in mind – first to
assist drivers wishing to learn the ranks of
Open Wheel racing through a proper learning
experience, and second – to invest in the safety
of today’s Open Wheel racers.
too early for me, until this point, to be able
to handle a Memorial race," said Hammond's
mother, Deb Marvuglio. "However, now seems like
the right time, and we're very excited to put
together a race to celebrate Shane's life. It
should be a great day for all involved."

Prizes were donated by Race Depot, First Turn Driving School,
Dirt Track Driving Experience, Iracing.com and of course The
Shane Hammond Believe Foundation.

Glen Cabral – Admission to “The Shane Race for Fun”
These prizes were randomly drawn throughout the day. Numbers
were also drawn for SHBF shirts.
The Expo also offered seminars of all types and as an activist
for safety, I attended the Joie of Seating seminar which
included Safety Solutions and Schroth Racing harnesses. I knew
from losing Shane exactly what can happen in a high speed crash.
I would like to send a wake up call out to the racers - serious
injuries can happen at 35 just as well as 135mph! Please take
care of yourselves by using the proper safety equipment. Educate
yourselves and use it all properly. Be sure you have an approved
helmet, a head/neck restraint and be sure those belts are
mounted to that seat correctly and tightened to your body. The
foundation is working hard for you! Please take the extra
measures to ensure your safety! Do your homework and take the
steps to educate yourself and the foundation will do everything
in its power to help you, help yourself.
Thank you to all who donated, purchased or signed up for the
upcoming Shane Race for Fun, March 13.
Good luck and be safe in your 2010 racing season.
