We received word from Adam Drake about the Bill Bridges Benefit race that will take place from the 24th to the 25th of June at ‘The Track’ in Carleton, Michigan. The race has been organised to help raise money to pay for medical expenses following Bill’s diagnosis with colon and liver cancer. A long time racer, currently running for TLR Team Losi Racing, Bill is married to Chrissy and has one son, Brayden, who is three years old. Bill recently had a cancerous tumor removed from his colon and has just started chemo for his liver, but with no medical insurance the bills can grow pretty fast. All proceeds from the race will go to Bill and his family and in addition Adam Drake and Dustin Evans have donated a TLR 8ight 2.0 and TLR 22 respectively for which you can buy raffle tickets on eBay.
