hosted by LCRC Raceway
The 2019 East Coast Race Against Cancer was held this past weekend at the LCRC Raceway in Central Pennsylvania, attracting a record breaking 409 entries to raise an astounding $18,000 for The American Cancer Society. The 3 day event was the largest in the history of RAC, and the largest event ever held at LCRC Raceway.
The 17th Annual Race Against Cancer has now raised a total of $173,000 for cancer research since its inception. Original hosted by the late Doug McCullough at McCullough’s Raceway, the event moved to LCRC Raceway in 2017 after Doug's passing. Racers for years have used the Race Against Cancer to honor their family and loved ones who have battled cancer, and now, it is also a way for racers to honor McCullough and his passion for the cause.
The $18,000 is raised from entry money as well as from the many exciting raffles throughout the weekend. Passionate sponsors that have come on board to provide great products to the raffle, which racers purchase tickets to try to win.
