“This is the fourth consecutive year that the drivers and the raceway will help make the holiday season brighter for many children who would otherwise not know the joy of the season,” said Daisy Ellis, president of the Love and Hope For the Children Foundation. “It’s really a wonderful thing that they do.”
Other Mighty M drivers who donated their driving percentages from that day included: Cedric Washington, Mike Merton, Mike Forte, Ken Devaux, Billy Parker Jr., Josh Marks, Robert Williams, General (Bubba) Washington Jr., Joe Moeykens, and Greg Decker Jr.
The third, seventh, ninth and 11th races on Monticello Raceway’s Dec. 24 card were the ones in from which the participating drivers made their donations.
“We are really pleased to participate and donate our (driving) percentages so that some unfortunate children in the area are able to get toys and games which they would otherwise not have received during this season of the year,” said Merton, a former two-time Mighty M driving champ who won the third race with Lil Cams Court which raised his victory total here to 202 this season.
