It seems to be the hardest, yet most rewarding post we do each year: the last one to close out our racing season. We are sure, even after five years as a team, that most don’t truly know who we are. We are a proud race team and an even prouder charity that is dedicated to kids first, raising money and racing.
This post is focused on racing and a thank you to the greatest team, we think, ever assembled at Berlin Raceway. We have accomplished a lot on the track, none of which would be possible without the efforts of each and every person that has been associated with Racing Awareness, the 97L Modified, the 55L Super Late and the 101L Super Late.
Our team gave selflessly and tirelessly, dedicated to success throughout 2014. Our team was there to celebrate with Ben Welch after winning his first ever Berlin Raceway feature. Our team was there supporting both Dave Lake and Joe Bush as they battled in the ultra-competitive Super Late division at Berlin Raceway, perhaps the toughest division of short track racing in the country. Again, to our immediate team and all those that helped out throughout the year: THANK YOU, because without you, there is no TEAM RA.
Racing Awareness Team –
Dave Lake – driver of the 55L Super Late

Many think that Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is sponsor … that has never been the case. HDVCH is simple the reason we race.
