2011 Dirt Riders Charity Event
11-6-2011

On November 6th, 2011, DirtRiders Club of Oakley, Illinois was proud to hold its 19th Annual Charity Race. This event is for the benefit of the Macon County Big Brothers & Big Sisters.

Entry to this event was, as always, a $10 toy plus $10 cash, with all proceeds going directly to the charity. This year's attendance was good as always. About 120 riders showed up to race for a good cause.

Overcast grey skies greeted riders for a perfect day for fall racing. Temperature started out in the low 50's, but rose to the upper 50's and a little sun shone through from time to time.

Let's get to the racing!
