Quick 32 Sportsman Series Top Dragster Team and Sponsor Give Back to Charity After Wins on
The Hinbest Racing team certainly enjoys racing its Top Dragster in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series
presented by NAPA Auto Parts, but the team also gave to charity through its racing this year.
In a coordinated program with sponsor Ideal Supply, the team donated $50 to charity for every round
win on the dragstrip during regular competition in 2010, and Ideal matched the team's contribution.
"This was something we decided to do earlier," said team driver Mike Hinbest. "The goal was to help
raise money for charity while adding an extra incentive for me to win."
With six round wins, Hinbest Racing and Ideal Supply contributed $600 this season to the Canadian
"We are proud to be associated with Hinbest Racing," said John MacDonald of Ideal Supply. "The
Round Win for Charity Program is another feather in their cap and a true display of character."
Ideal Supply is one of the team's major sponsors along with NAPA Auto Parts, The Canadian
Automotive Institute and the Tire Discounter Group.
The Hinbest charity drive will continue for next season, said Mike Hinbest, adding the team is not
only looking at other charities, it is planning on getting more sponsors to sign up.
And for the ultimate challenge, Hinbest has thrown down the gloves for other teams in the Quick 32
"I think we should challenge the other teams in the Series," he said. "Let's get more involved in
giving back to those less fortunate."
