Dirt Track Digest and Camp Mayhem to Offer “Just Missed” Award at National Open

BREWERTON, NY – DirtTrackDigest.com has joined forces with Camp Mayhem to raise money for the first ever “Just Missed” award to be given at the Williams Grove Speedway National Open. This award will be presented to the highest finishing driver in the Last Chance Showdown that does not earn a provisional starting spot for Saturday night’s $50,000 win National Open for the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series.

Camp Mayhem is a collection of loyal National Open supporters that come together for the three day event each year at the Williams Grove Speedway. Many in the group don’t have the opportunity to spend time together until their yearly pilgrimage to the Cumberland County oval. The group has camped together for nearly a decade in various locations around the grounds. Most recently they’ve moved their location to the top of the hill on the backside of the speedway.

The group has already raised $750 in just over a week toward the overall prize for whichever driver fails to make the cut after Saturday night’s Last Chance Showdown. The group is hoping to raise even more money as the event draws closer. Each dollar raised by the entities will be given back to the driver that earns the award as a thank you for their hard work and dedication to Sprint Car racing.
