 Hello Racers, Friends, Family and Fans,

The 2nd Annual Shane Hammond Memorial Race is scheduled for July 30, 2011 at The Waterford Speedbowl. We are looking for corporate sponsors to help with the cost of the day. Last year shirts looked awesome and I can't wait to see what Bill Smith from Wild Child Design comes up with this year. All corporate sponsors will be featured on the shirt and program.

We will also be selling laps for $20.00. You can choose a lap and a position to sponsor, even which division and that race team will receive an extra $20.00. All lap sponsors will be featured in the program as well. It takes time to coordinate all the events of the day, volunteers, raffles, food and fun. We hope you will consider being a part of this years memorial race.

Last year sponsors included but not limited to:

A-1 Automotive - Ancient Art Studios - Atlantic Trophy - Bentley's Saloon

Bertrand Motorsports - Circle Performance - Crown Collision Dan deRitis

Haggerty Family - G2 - Kahan Family - Maier Family

Martino Family - Mike & Lu Jarret - Mike's Automotive = Motor Cars International

Rodenbaugh Family - Thompson International Speedway - Tom O'Brien Hyundai

Every Dollar helps put this event together and all monies are divided evenly to NEMA & NEMA LITE divisions. Please consider being a part of this worthy event. Please spread the word to your friend list and visit or friend us on Facebook at Shane Hammond Believe. Thanks for your continued support.

The SHMR is Coming Up!
The second annual Shane Hammond Memorial Race is set to take place next weekend (Saturday, July 30) at the Waterford Speedbowl. Following an incredibly successful inaugural event last season, the race is organized by NEMA and The Shane Hammond Believe Foundation.

Shane Hammond was a young, talented driver who started his career at the Hi-Groove Speedway in Winchester, NH. There, Shane learned how to wheel a go kart on the dirt. He mastered the track and earned the name “Smoothy.” From there, he went on to run the NHKA series and ran various classes of karts with the support of his grandfather, Jack Glockner, a former stock car driver from the Norwood Arena era.

Shane had a short reprieve from racing at age 15 when diagnosed with a brain and spine tumor. Surgery didn’t keep him down nor did that pain that nagged him everyday. He had a determination that could only be described as surreal and amazing. He lived for racing and anyone who knew him believed and supported his dream.

The unselfish character of Shane helped other racers too. He had his brother, Anthony Marvuglio, racing ¼ midgets by age 6. After that, they raced together in karts for years and were looking forward to racing together in NEMA. In fact, they were building another NEMA car so they could compete together – but it was not to be, as Shane’s time on earth came to a tragic end on April 6th, 2008 while competing in a midget at the Thompson International Speedway’s Icebreaker event.

Shane’s brother, Anthony will be competing this year with the NEMA lite series in car #21 (representing the day Shane was born). No matter what the finish is it will be a glorious day & Shane will be with him always.

Last years inaugural event at Waterford was hit with a rain delay & we made the best of it. This year Deb has prayed for the perfect race day to celebrate & honor Shane.

The event will have 37 laps in honor of his car number. With 10 lap heats and 27 lap features for NEMA and NEMA lites.

THE SHMR and SHBF want to ask everyone to join in on the celebration and join us at this event. There will be a hospitality tent set up for drivers, crew & sponsors along with raffles, cash n carry items and of course those famous Believe t-shirts. Shane’s mother, Deb, wants to thank all the corporate and individual sponsors who help make this day possible.
