2016 “RACE FOR AUTISM” CHARITY RECIPIENTS NAMED…the following organizations have been selected to receive donations from the VCRA charity annual funding program.  As photos of the presentations arrive, they will be posted on the web site.


F.A.C.T.  Virginia Beach,. VA Beach, VA                                          $7,465.00

FACT is a 501C3 non-profit organization that VCRA  has had a long time relationship with. This year’s donation will totally fund the new “Out & About” program for teens and young adults. This program allows 1 on 1 staffing for those kids on outings in the general public who do not fully understand signs of danger, have limited communication skills and may be prone to wander. I can attest that Justyce, our grandson, has benefitted greatly from similar projects that has increased his ability to function in the public forum. FACT focuses on children of veterans.

SHERWOOD CENTER   Kansas City, MO                                                $12,000.00

 LOOKING FOR A SPEEDO? We here at VCRA try to locate and purchase all the used speedos we can to pass on to those that are entering the sport..however, it seems with the surge of Rookie teams each year, the demand has exceeded the supply. We will continue to try to find the used ones, and, in the meantime, our good friend Bill Croker has been successful in his program of finding, and making available, used Timewise speedos. If in need, also try Bill for a speedo at www.whcroker@gv.net .  He is the guy that initiated the “Rookie Mentor” program, so you can believe what he tells you!!

CHECK OUT THE COVER OF THE OCTOBER “HEMMINGS MOTOR NEWS”..and you will find the very colorful photo of the 1932 Ford Speedster piloted by the team of Josh Hull and Trevor Stahl. This team, chosen from Ted and Mary Stahl’s “Spirit of Stahl’s” group of entries, represents the winner of the VCRA “RACE4AUTISM” contest by being the team raising the most money for the VCRA charity. Our sincere thanks to all who participated and made this our finest event ever. And many thanks to Hemmings, Jim Menneto, and Greatrace’s Jeff Stumb for their tremendous support to make this contest a barnburner success!! Also in the Hemmings article is great coverage of the entire event, photos of many of the  Great Race teams, as well as the list of the top 10 donators to the Race4Autism charity!! Thanks to you all…you have made it possible to make a huge impact on the lives of many, many kids with autism.


THE 2017 VCRA “RACE4AUTISM” IS THE REAL WINNER…and we here at VCRA are truly grateful to all of those who participated in this fun, as well as rewarding, fund raising event. With the cooperation of Greatrace ( Thank you Corky Coker & Jeff Stumb) and the gracious support of Jim Menneto of Hemmings Motor News, the 2017 Race4Autism was a mind boggling success.

When Pat Brothers came up with this zany idea that old car rally teams would do almost anything to get their car on the cover of Hemmings Motor News, I was a bit skeptical. Boy, was I wrong!!! So this was the deal..the team that could get their friends, relatives, team members, home town organizations, co-workers etc to donate to their team’s entry, the team that raised the most funds would get their car on the cover of Hemmings Motor News magazine. Well, in a week’s time, over 276 separate donations were made for a total of nearly $125,000!!! To say this was amazing would be an understatement!! What I can say to you all is “Thank You All Very Much!! You will have made hundreds, if not thousands, of kids with autism have a better, more productive, life.”


The Grand Prize winner was “Spirit of Stahl” (Ted & Mary Stahl) and they will have one of their cars on the cover of Hemmings Motor News, October edition.
