   The Chrome Horn - Modified Racing Series




Dick Cyr, President Emeritus of David’s House in Lebanon, NH. has been named Grand Marshall for the third annual 112 lap “Ricky’s Race For Kids” for open-wheel modified race cars. Cyr will drop the green flag to officially start this year’s race to be held at Canaan Fair Speedway, Saturday, July 24, featuring the return of the Modified Racing Series, sponsored by BobValenti AutoMall.Com. Race time is 5:00 PM.

The race is held to honor the memory of Ricky Miller, a New England racing standout who died at the age of 34 from complications from a racing accident. This year, the two-day event, will again serve as a fundraiser for David’s House, in Lebanon, NH.

Last October, a total of $10,012, was raised by retired racing great Donnie “The Golden Jet” Miller, his family, and a large support base. This year the family hopes to surpass that amount.

“I have met thousands of people through David’s House in the past 24 ½ years either as guests at David’s House or at a fundraiser, said founder Dick Cyr. They are all very special, but the Miller family is so dedicated to the memories of Ricky, as are all families who lose a child. The work and love the Miller family puts into Ricky’s Racing for Kids is a work of love. Having met the Miller family and sharing Ricky’s memory with them has had a tremendous impact on me, one I will never forget. It’s one more reason why David’s House keeps on going.”
In only three years the Ricky’s Race for Kids has become well-known, thanks to Cyr sharing his appreciation. “Sometimes when at David’s House a guest maybe from New Hampshire or Oregon or from Russia will ask how David’s House is funded and I will tell them some of the great things like Ricky’s Race for Kids. So Ricky, like David, is known all over the world with great appreciation.”
This year’s event will cover two days. Friday, July 23, will feature a live radio broadcast (KIXX 100.5) from Gateway Motors, White River Junction, VT., race cars and antique cars on display, race ticket giveaways, followed by a Saturday pit party at the speedway on race day. A $1,000 cash door prize will be given away.

A special raffle will be held with tickets on sale both Friday and Saturday. 1st Prize will be 4 VIP Tickets to the Colts vs. Patriots game. This will include VIP parking, pre game party with cheerleaders, food and 50 yard line seats. The works!! 2nd Prize will be 4 Red Sox vs. Yankees Tickets. These tickets will include transportation to and from the game and 3rd prize will be 4 VIP tickets to the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. All of the prizes will be drawn before the Modified Racing Series. You DO NOT need to be present to win.

David’s House is named after David Cyr, who died at the age of 5 in 1984, a victim of leukemia. His father, Dick, along with friends, immediately started to raise funds to create a facility where families could stay while their loved ones were being treated at nearby Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Hanover, NH.
