There will be a fundraiser for the bounty where SCR fans can contribute directly to this fun but worthy cause that will assist Cory Mackay. Any INSCA Sprint Car driver that can beat the B&B machine to the checkered flag will receive half of the funds with the other half of the proceeds being given to a very special cause that the B&B team has been supporting this season.

The B&B Motorsports team with driver Tony Berry has gotten off to a fast start in the INSCA Winged Sprint Car series in 2009 winning the season’s first two events. Spokane County Raceway has placed a bounty on the driver of the #53 car for the June 13th event. There will be a fundraiser for this bounty where fans can contribute directly to this fun but worthy cause. Any INSCA Sprint Car driver that can beat the B&B machine to the checkered flag will receive half of the funds with the other half of the proceeds being given to a very special cause that the B&B team has been supporting this season.

A freshman football player at Washington State University, Cory Mackay, was on his way home to Redmond, WA from Pullman May 7th. While in transit, Mackay was involved in a single car accident near Washtucna after falling asleep just after 5 pm.

Mackay was air lifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA where it was determined that he had broken his back in two places. Cory underwent multiple surgeries and has just recently left the hospital to return to the family home. The doctors are optimistic about Cory’s recovery and he has already shown some improvement while working intensely with the physical therapists. The Mackay family has established a foundation in Cory’s honor to help offset the building medical costs and the necessary remodeling of the family’s home to accommodate Cory’s movement.

If you’d like to make contributions on your own you may do so at any US Bank location and simply tell them you’d like to contribute to the “Cory Mackay Fund” or you may send donations to: Cory Mackay Fund, PO Box 814, Redmond, WA 98073-0814.
