Greetings to all,

As many of you may be aware and look time Buckeye member and dear friend to all in the QM Racing Family is experiencing an extremely difficult situation right now. That friend is Larry Ebert owner of www.QMstuff.com and sole proprietor for Beechwold Automotive in Columubus, OH. "Our Larry" is the ultimate example of one who gives and asks for nothing in return except for a thank you (and perhaps paying you bill in a timely manner when that applies). Larry is experiencing a medical hardship that does not allow him to work in his auto shop where he is a one man show.

At the final two day event of th Buckeye indoor Winternational Season we will be organizing numerous fund raising events. One event will be a silent auction type deal which requires items to be donated for auctioning. We are sending out a request for anyone that is capable to donate items to be auctioned during the event. We are iling to accept anything that folks may be interested in having as long as it is in NEW CONDITION:tires, T-shirts, parts, hats, gift certificates, evn non-racing related items may be a good idea.

If you would like to donate you can contact me direct either via email (crandall99@msn.com) or my cell (614-203-3312). If you plan to bring items please let me know ahead of time so we have any idea of what we'll have. Or if you cannot ahead letme know and I will provide info on where to send them.
 
Thanks to all for your donations, thoughts and prayers!

Lets step up and give back to one that has given so much to our sport and touched the lives of many families and children.

Greetings to all,

I just wanted to send out a huge thank you everyone that donated, volunteered or participated in the fund raising event in any way this past weekend. We had over 45 different items donated and were extremely successful in raising a few bucks to help w/ the bills that are coming in fast and furious.

Everyone had lots of fun, we even had folks selling their used equipment and donating all proceeds to the casue as well. It was great seeing all the kids make get well and we miss you cards for Larry too. Larry was even able to make a brief appearence for a little while to see some racing which he is missing terribly.

Sunday evening a few QM families went to Larry house and one of the older kids delivered the funds and cards to Larry personally w/ a get well message from everyone. I'm told he was blown away by what you all were able to accomplish for him. He is very appreciative.

As always the QM Family stepped up and provided more reason why this is such a great sport.

Thanks again and good luck to all this upcoming outdoor season.
