OSWEGO, NY (April 11, 2017) - For the fifth year in a row, the Camden Proud Chicken BBQ Fundraiser which was held last Sunday, April 8 at Lighthouse Lanes in Oswego, resulted in a success for Proud Motorsports.

Hundreds of supporters filled in between the hours of 1pm and 5pm to purchase chicken dinners, buy 50/50 tickets, or take their chance on raffle items. Nearly two dozen different individuals ended up taking prizes home when the fundraiser wrapped up that evening.

“I was overwhelmed by the support we received at our fundraiser,” Proud said. “Thanks to all of my friends, family, and fans who stopped by as well as to all the businesses and individuals who so generously donated to help support our race team. They, along with my 2018 sponsors and partners, are all listed at ProudMotorsports.com. We kindly ask that you support those that support racing.”

With fundraising out of the way, Proud Motorsports now shifts gears to the Lighthouse Lanes SBS Series ‘Spring Championship’ Opener at the Evans Mills Speedway on Saturday, May 12. Team owner Tim Proud will be back behind the wheel of the Step One Creative No. 54 for the 30-lap special event at the Jefferson County oval. Proud’s return to the driver seat will come after nearly finishing runner-up in last year’s Lighthouse Lanes SBS Series ‘Fall Brawl.’

“After getting wrecked out of contention while running second at the Fall Brawl this past September, I’ve been looking forward to heading up to Evans Mills and getting Dad in the car just about as much as I have been to get out there myself,” Proud stated. “It should be a great event to kickoff the northeast Small Block Super season and I’m anxious to cheer from the sidelines before jumping back in the seat the following week at Oswego Open Practice. Hopefully we will be in contention for victory again.”

Upcoming Events for Proud Motorsports:

Saturday, May 12 - Evans MIlls Speedway - Lighthouse Lanes SBS Series 30 (Tim)

Saturday, May 19 - Oswego Speedway - Open Practice (Camden)

Saturday, May 26 - Oswego Speedway - 68th Annual Opening Day / Tony White Memorial 35 (Camden)
