The Bill Ingram Memorial was originally scheduled for last weekend, but was rained out. The race, held in memory of a longtime Dixie driver, carries of prize of $3,000. The crate Championship will award $1,200 to the winning driver.

Tickets purchased for the May 31 event will be honored tonight at the gate, which opens at 5 p.m. Racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Grandstand admission for adults is $15. Ages 9-17 are $6, and children 8 and under are free.


Season-ticket renewal forms for the 2014 Reinhardt football season must be returned to the university athletic office by June 16, in order for ticket-holders to retain their seats for the upcoming season.

Athletic director Bill Popp said fans have been calling to purchase tickets, but sales will not be open to the public until after season-ticket holders have a chance to renew.

Reinhardt plans to resume ticket sales June 18 with a limited number of chair-back season tickets available for the general public at $75 each. General-admission season tickets will be available for $40 each.


Reinhardt will hold a football camp Monday through Thursday for ages 6-13.

The camp, held from 8:30 a.m.-noon daily, costs $125 per camper and includes a T-shirt.

Reinhardt football coach Danny Cronic said the goal of the camp is to teach the correct fundamentals of football, while also allowing campers to have fun.

Children will be exposed to skills, drills and the repetitions required to play football. They will also learn about training and conditioning techniques.

Awards will be given each day, and games will be played throughout the week.

Children are required to provide their own shorts, T-shirts, tennis shoes and cleats.

The camp staff will also include Reinhardt assistants Drew Cronic, Adam Carter, Will Heath, Jake Robertson, Quentin Moses, Tony Taylor, Larry Prather and Tommy Scott.
