One thing a lot of people are looking forward to is that we have a Circle Track large enough to race Side-by-Sides including RZR XP900's and will be having prizes for the winners the day of the charity rally.
Here is a part a recent race and since this video was made we've more than doubled the size of the track in both length and width.
Listen up guys and gals! Next weekend on Saturday the 20th starting at 9am we are having a major charity event here at Sandtown Ranch!
We have a great family fun event planned here at Sandtown Ranch with lots of SxS and ATV games and activities! We have one of the only SxS sized oval dirt tracks in the state and just expanded it to over 2.5x its original length and twice as wide and next weekend
we would love to see you guys bring out your RZR’s and other SxS and show what you can do. Kudos to Eric S Diamond one of our volunteers who spent much of Sunday morning on the tractor grading out the dirt track and other tracks so they would be smooth and fresh for next weekend. The track is just perfect for RZR’s and SxS to race and we will have races broken up by classes, should be a blast not only for the racers but also for the spectators and there will be ATV races as well.
We are also having both SxS and ATV; Dirt-Track Racing, Drag Racing, Barrel Racing, Tug-of-War, and Mud-Pit Racing. Each race will also feature a “Powder Puff” race just for the ladies.
We know lots of people enjoy POKER RUNS and we have planned out a fun and interesting course.
There will also be a couple of guided rides or you can just ride around and explore on your own.
If you love good food we’re going to have a couple of different grills going cooking out some awesome food and even some smoked meats!
The whole thing should be a fun day for the whole family!
The gals have lined up a LOT of nice prizes, multiple classes for each race including prizes for the powder-puff races for the ladies and every winner’s prize will be in the $40-$60 value range with a few grand prizes worth more than that. Even have some nice jewelry donated by a jewelry store to give to the ladies for the winners of the powder-puff races, I think they said they had a pearl necklace worth over $100 and other nice jewelry as well. Any leftover or unclaimed prizes will be raffled and auctioned off after the prizes are given out near the end of the day; They said they don't want to leave with any of the prizes that were donated ~ they want to give away, raffle, or auction off all of them so everyone gets a chance at something.
This is all to benefit the Arkansas AIDS Foundation who directly helps the victims of AIDS in Arkansas. All of the funds go straight to helping victims. Whatever pre-conceptions you have about AIDS affecting only people in “risky” lifestyles it’s time to lose them; AIDS is one of the fastest growing diseases in our state with a new case discovered every 8 minutes, over half of all new cases are our younger people, teens between the ages of 13-25 and most all newly reported cases in the past several years are straight family people who are not involved in any form of risky lifestyle.
First off, the Stephens Shoulders team for the Arkansas AIDS Foundation has several events in the past month all leading up to the annual AIDS walk in Little Rock on November 11th. They had a goal of raising a minimum of $1000 total from all of the events combined. Today at the ATV Rally and Poker Run at Sandtown Ranch alone, this single event, they raised over $1700 easily blowing WAY past their $1000 minimum goal! So AWESOME job from the ATV community! Combined with what they have so far from their other events they now have over $2000 ~ Twice their original minimum goal! We had a great event, gave away some awesome prizes, and had 91 people in attendance.
