Dublin Motor Speedway not only promoted racing on Saturday, August 27th, but was the site of fundraising efforts for Southeastern Carolina Crossroads.
Raffle tickets for a diamond ring valued over 3,500 dollars donated by Ray’s Furniture & Jewelry, Barbecue sandwiches donated by Christopher Reeves with Southeast Foundation & Crawl Space and furniture made by residents of Southeastern Carolina Crossroads were all sold at the race track to raise funds for the rehabilitation non-profit ministry in Bladen County.
David Chestnut, with Southeastern Carolina Crossroads was presented with over 1,500 dollars. A check was presented by Richard and Shirley Bailey from Dublin Motor Speedway and other donations are still being collected.  
Chestnut said, “I would like to thank everyone involved with the fundraiser. I would also like to thank Bladen County residents for always being so supportive of our efforts.”
Gary McMillian with Dirt Racing for Jesus, Ray Britt, Richard Bailey, Randy White, and Christopher Reeves all assisted with organizing the fundraising efforts for the non-profit.
“This was my first time at Dublin Motor Speedway and I was blown away at the size of it and amount of people there.” Chestnut said. 
Richard Bailey, race track promoter at Dublin Motor Speedway, said he received donations for the Race for Hope in order to draw a bigger crowd for the fundraising event.
Race car driver, Andy Bohan, was the winner of the Race for Hope and Timothy Kersey of Garland was the winner of the diamond ring.
