Lyn St. James, one of the first women to ever compete in the Indianapolis 500, will headline the Classic Sports Racing Group's 8th annual Charity Challenge at Infineon Racweay, Oct.1-2. All proceeds from the race weekend benefit Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Infineon Raceway.

St. James, one of seven women to qualify for the Indy 500, posted two victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona and also won the 12 Hours of Sebring during her career. She will serve as Grand Marshal and Featured Driver of the CSRG Charity Challenge.

The weekend will also feature a collection of incredible vintage racecars on the world-famous road course, including pre-war cars, sports racing cars and formula cars as well as production and GT cars. Lotus will be one of the featured models.

Race fans will also get to experience the road course each day with Track Rides for Charity, which allows anyone 16 or older to experience three laps around the track, at speed, in a vintage race car of their choice. Cost is as low as $50. The track parades are open to any car that is eligible for the Car Club Corral in the paddock, with a limit of 75 cars each day.

CSRG has generously donated nearly $500,000 to SCC since 2004. Charity events include track rides, raffles and a race gear sale. 

Tickets for the event are just $25 per day or $40 for a weekend pass.  Kids twelve and under are admitted FREE.  Parking is also FREE.  For more information about the event weekend or to purchase tickets, call 800-870-RACE (7223) or visit infineonraceway.com.
