DSR to Host Fifth Annual Open House to Benefit Riley Hospital for Children

By Auto News Log • August 9th, 2010

Don Schumacher Racing will again open the doors of its 100,000-square-foot race shop in Brownsburg, Ind. to fans on Sept. 3, 2010, when DSR hosts its fifth annual Open House to benefit Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. The open house coincides with the opening day of professional qualifying for the 56th annual U.S. Nationals at nearby O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis.

The popular event will be highlighted by the Indy Hi-Winders Car Club Car and Motorcycle Show and will feature an autograph session with all seven DSR professional drivers: Tony Schumacher, Cory McClenathan, Antron Brown, Rod Fuller and Mopar-powered NHRA Funny Car drivers Ron Capps, Jack Beckman and Matt Hagan. The DSR Open House will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. while professional nitro qualifying is scheduled for 7 p.m. at O.R.P.

“Don Schumacher and the DSR staff are proud to showcase our facilities to NHRA fans and share a commitment to Riley Hospital for Children with DSR drivers, sponsors and fans,” DSR Sr. Vice President Mike Lewis said. “The doctors, medical personnel and families at Riley are miracle workers and we’re inspired every year by Riley Kids. It’s great to share the excitement of the NHRA U.S. Nationals with the greater Indianapolis community and especially our friends at Riley Hospital for Children.”

Race fans will have the opportunity to tour DSR’s racing headquarters which houses, among other race vehicles, the Mopar HEMI®-powered Funny Cars of Capps, Beckman and Hagan. Visitors also will be able to see DSR’s in-house fabrication area and machine shop and have the opportunity to win racing collectibles as part of a raffle drawing. There also will be a silent auction during the open house event.

DSR has raised more than $90,000 over the last five years with its Open House and Bowling for Riley charity tournament. The second annual charity bowling event generated more than $12,000 for Riley this May. All proceeds from the DSR Open House go to Riley Hospital for Children.
