The Don Schumacher Racing race shop will once again be the place to be on the
opening Friday of the 53rd running of the U.S. Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway
Park, Aug. 31-Sept. 3.
On Friday, Aug. 31, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the
100,000-sq. ft. facility at 1681 East Northfield Drive, Brownsburg, Ind., will
open its doors to welcome racing fans to tour and meet the eclectic, diverse and
colorful DSR NHRA drivers and riders at the second annual DSR Open House
benefiting Riley Hospital for Children.
Last year, 5,000 fans attended
the inaugural DSR Open House, which raised over $14,000 for Riley Hospital for
Children in Indianapolis through voluntary donations and a silent auction
raffling unique race items and sponsor products. An even larger number of fans
is expected this year.
Riley Hospital for Children is also planning to
have its Mobile Intensive Care Unit on display.
The Indy Hi-Winders Car
Club, a staple of the event with its Car and Motorcycle show, returns this year
to spend the day at DSR, the U.S. Army will have its interactive Rock Wall, H2
Hummer, and personalized dog-tag machine for fans to enjoy. Mopar and Dodge are
planning to have a variety of classic and concept vehicles on display, including
a Super Stock Challenger, 1970 Challenger by Matt Delany, and the One Lap of
America Dodge Viper.
