Champion Castleberry dumps #95 in favor of #806
By Bob Burbach
Marysville CA - October 2, 2010 --- 2 time MRP Mini Stock Champion Misty Castleberry gave a little something back to the community today when she jogged 5k in the Race for Breast Cancer Awareness. Castleberry shed her well-known #95 for #806 at the event that started at Geweke Field in Yuba City.

Castleberry and her team of contestants cruised through the city with over 1100 hundred other entrants. The annual event raised over $20,000 in revenue after costs to be donated to breast cancer research and the Caring for Women Foundation.

Castleberry did the 5k in 33 minutes and added, “I’m not much of a jogger, I like working out a lot better.” But, when she was challenged and motivated by her fellow participants during the race, she said, “My competitive nature came out.”

Castleberry will celebrate her 2nd Marysville Raceway Park Mini Stock Championship on Saturday October 9th by competing in not only her well known #95 Mini Stock, but also in her Pro 4 Sprinter where she will be awarded the Rookie of the Year trophy in that class for 2010. 

With more and more champion drivers committing to an appearance at MRP on October 9th in all 5 classes, additional info for the event will be upcoming on this site. The race will have all of the primary divisions on the card. The MRP Winged Sprinters, the Performance Auto Supply Wingless Warrior Sprint Car Series, the MRP Mini Stocks, Super Stocks and Pro 4 Sprints will all be presented.

Pit gate opens at 3PM. The spectator gates will open at 5 PM with Hot Laps at 6 PM. IMPORTANT: The first race will start after hot laps at about 6:30.
