Hoosier Park Racing and Casino will culminate the 2015 live racing season with a night of live harness racing, family activities and entertainment, benefitting local charities on Saturday, Nov. 14. The 2015 Champion Drivers will be the stars of the show as they go head to head in two races for their chance to win a share of $5,000 for their respective charities. The Champion Drivers will be paired in double-seated jog carts with members of the Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and Indiana Grand Racing & Casino Senior Leadership Team.
Racing fans will have the opportunity to visit trackside Club Centaur and select the driver of their choice to receive an entry to place into the driver's charity box. At the end of each charity race, Hoosier Park will draw five lucky winners from each of the race winner's charity box to win up to $500 in free race wagers. Fans will also have the opportunity to donate $10 to a charity of choice and receive $10 in free slot play.
A total of $10,000 will be up for grabs between the two races, $2,500 to the winning driver's charity, $1,250 for second, $750 for third and $500 for fourth place in each race. The evening will also include games and activities to help raise money for these deserving organizations.
