Hundreds of race fans took part in the 7th annual Weese Racing Anti-Bullying night Saturday presented by Behan Construction and McDougall Insurance. Scores of fans dominated the track wearing bright grey and yellow Weese racing team anti-bullying awareness t-shirts to show they will take ‘no bull.’ Pro Late Model driver Caley Weese said this year’s campaign sold nearly 800 awareness racing t-shirts, the most ever distributed. “This really is a community campaign and we can’t do it without you,” Weese said to race fans gathered on the front stretch for a group photo Saturday.
