Everyone knows a family that needs a getaway from their everyday routine; an opportunity for an evening together of fun, laughter, and for making new memories. In 2018, RacingAwareness.com will make that opportunity available to families with an evening at the Berlin Raceway.

Each week that the RacingAwareness.com cars are on the track (RA schedule) at the Berlin Raceway, one family will experience the sights and sounds of short track racing and be a part of the action. This package includes complimentary general admission, hot dogs and a beverage for up to 10 people.  Plus, the RA team will add some special surprises along the way.  One package will be presented on each RA race Saturday in 2018.

While this opportunity is open to all, special consideration will be given to those families that have experienced hardship due to the illness or injury of a child or adult.
