For every donor who contributes $100 or more, the new tower will include a 4"x6" engraved plate with your name on it! Be a part of the Resurrection Wall! How cool is that???

My big break as a track announcer came at Bakersfield during the 1963 March Meet (aka U.S. Fuel & Gas Championships). I was asked to announce Sunday at the March Meet when resident announcers Bernie Mather and Al Caldwell became ill. So ... there I was - a green kid from Michigan - given the opportunity to cover the event-of-events, before an SRO crowd and honor my heroes. And I SOARED! That was a truly life-changing moment for me. i am, therefore, a proud and thankful donor.

I ran the march Meet for the first time last year. We were treated so well by all the staff and track personnel that we already have made our plans to return again this year. It was a no braner for me to donate to the cause and get Famso back on track

Got started making the trip out there in 2010 and almost "need" it now. A great chance to meet great people and see some great racing and classic race cars at CHRR. Glad to help just a little in this effort.

I know the history of this track because my brother has worked there for many teams and loves the track so I donate what little I can in the name of my brother Jon Wurtz so the racing community can get their track up and running as a historic place you all band together just like my equine family does when something devastating happens I know you will all pull together and get it back together and God bless all of you and all the hard work you have ahead of you, you have a lot of people behind you.
