FREMONT – Friends of Headworks, Inc. helped out with its first drag race event over the weekend, in an effort to raise money for a local mother’s wheelchair ramp.
Friends of Headworks Founder Jason Kunes says he was contacted by Clint Petersen who wanted to host a drag race benefit, in order to raise money for a wheelchair ramp for his mother Peggy. Kunes said the event brought out roughly 100 people and said he was glad they could help out.
“It was our first event as a corporation, yes, and we didn’t actually run the event, we ran it but we just helped him run it i guess,” says Kunes, “you know it was a great feeling getting back out there and doing that kind of stuff, and in the future we plan on doing all kinds of benefits like that for different communities.”
The event was held on Sunday in Peggy’s backyard outside of Fremont, and Peggy’s daughter Christine and family were also on hand to enjoy the races. The open drag races included ATVs, dirt bikes, and UTVs, and the Petersen families said they were very excited to see all the support.
Friends of Headworks, Inc. also released it’s new logo, and Kunes said the group decided on the logo after choosing from a pool of thirty entries.
