SMD Motorsports hosts Hurricane Katrina Fundraiser at PRIMM 300

Heber, California (September 5, 2005) – Facing the nation’s worst natural disaster ever, SMD Motorsports will host a Hurricane Katrina fundraiser at the SCORE Tecate Primm 300 off-road race.

“The scope of devastation to the Gulf Coast is unbelievable. We all know that the off-road community understands the nature of giving and SMD Motorsports will host a fundraiser for victims. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Samaritan’s Purse for the Katrina Relief Fund and the remainder will be distributed to other agencies in need of cash contributions,” said Team Owner Steve Scaroni.

The Hurricane Katrina Raffle and Silent Auction will include many prizes donated by the off-road industry. Visit for a complete list of prizes and donors. ESPN personality and off-road racer, Cameron Steele, will perform the Master of Ceremony duties for the event.

The Scaroni Family will also match the final raffle ticket proceeds in a cash donation to the Katrina victims. In addition, the Scaroni Family is looking for a few “Match Partners,” who will receive extensive recognition throughout the Primm 300 race weekend.

At 7:00 p.m. SMD Motorsports will present a showing of the film, “Dust to Glory” on several big screens at the SMD Main Pit. Following the movie at approximately 8:30 p.m., ESPN’s Cameron Steele will take center stage where he will conduct the Hurricane Katrina fundraiser raffle. After the raffle, SMD Motorsports will feature the famed film, “On Any Sunday,” on the big screens surrounding the SMD Motorsports main pit. Everyone is invited and dessert will be served!
