Chairman of the Board Nate Shelton Challenges You to a Race in Pomona

By Luanne Brown

SEMA Chairman Nate Shelton encourages participation in the SEMA Pinewood Drag Races to benefit the children of Childhelp and Victory Junction.

Each year, generous individuals around the United States step up to sponsor cars for SEMA's Pinewood Drag Races, and SEMA councils challenge each other for the Council Cup. This is all done in support of SEMA Cares charities, such as Childhelp and Victory Junction, which both support children in need. This year's event will take place near the historic Pomona Raceway—the perfect setting for a drag race—at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel & Convention Center in Pomona, California, July 18, 2014. No one is more encouraged by the volume of this year's Pinewood Drag Races sponsorships than SEMA Chairman of the Board Nate Shelton.

"Pomona is home to some of the most historic drag racing in history, and it's the perfect setting for serious SEMA competition that ultimately helps children in need," said Shelton. "SEMA supporters will race some of the coolest Pinewoods around, and you too can be part of the action. Help a child in need by sponsoring a Pinewood racer today."

Every SEMA member is encouraged to help SEMA Cares and show that our industry can come together to raise money for two great charities. Sponsor your Pinewood car today.

Held in conjunction with the annual SEMA Installation Gala, the SEMA Cares Pinewood Drag Races take place at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel & Convention Center in Pomona, California, Friday, July 18, 2014, at 12:00 p.m.

Proceeds from the races benefit SEMA Cares charities, including Childhelp and Victory Junction. Childhelp assists abused and neglected children by providing counseling and programs in a safe and secure living environment. Victory Junction provides the camp experience for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses who otherwise would not be able to go to camp.

Sponsoring a car for the SEMA Cares Pinewood Drag Races is easy and rewarding. Help someone in need today.
