Elmsford Raceway was center stage on Wednesday, April 22 when Automobile Magazine awarded Alex Zanardi it's prestigious Driver Of The Year Award at the Automobile Magazine Charity Slot Car Challenge to benefit Paul Neuman's "Hole In The Wall" gang camp for kids with cancer and other life threatening blood diseases.

Six of Auto Racing's shining stars convened in the Atrium at the Toumeau Time Machine to race for the kids.  Paul Newman's partner Carl Haas, Chip Ganassi, Bobby Rahal, Brian Herta, Christian Fittipaldi, and, of course Alex Zanardi came to race, and race they did!  The competition while always friendly was nonetheless intense.

People paid $25.00 to come in, feast on unlimited drinks and hors d'oeuvres and watch top race car drivers race slot cars on the Steve Ogilvie Tri-oval.  A huge screen was erected so that those without a good direct view wouldn't miss any of the action.   Excellent camera work assured that nothing was missed.

Everyone who came also received a handsome goody bag chock full of all kinds of good stuff.

$50.00 more could get you a chance to actually race against the stars during the practice sessions.  An auction was held which made over $25,000 for the charity with people bidding on such items as autographed checkered flags, a mint condition, still in the box Chaparral slot car, and the actual slot cars autographed by the drivers and painted in 1/1 scale terms, donated by Elmsford Raceway.

Plans are already underway for a repeat performance next year.
