ORANGEVILLE, ONTARIO -- Dragstrip
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 Cancer Society.
"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 Sportsman Series.
"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."
