Southeastern Carolina Crossroads is a non-profit organization in Bladen County offering help and hope over addiction. Randy White and Ray Britt, local business owners along with Dublin Motor Speedway are working together to raise funds for the local rehabilitation center.

White came up with the idea and asked Britt and the speedway if they would be interested in assisting in the efforts. White said, “I wanted to help promote Dublin Motor Speedway and help Southeastern Carolina Crossroads.”
Britt, the owner of Ray’s Inc., a local furniture and jewelry store in Elizabethtown, donated a  diamond ring valued at $3,519 to be raffled off the night of the Race For Hope which is Saturday, August 27. The raffle tickets for the ring are $5 per ticket. You may purchase tickets at Dublin Motor Speedway, Ray’s or BladenOnline’s office.
The event organizers have been working on building the purse for the Race for Hope to attract more drivers and to get more folks to come. Currently the winner of the Race for Hope will receive $2,500. The race will be an open-wheeled modified with $200 to start. There will also be a $100 poll award as well, according to Richard Bailey, Dublin Motor Speedway Promoter. 
Bailey said he was grateful to all the sponsors of the Race for Hope.
