David Oliphant Memorial Series Starts Today, Numbers on the Left

Tuesday PIR is pleased to announce we will once again be running the David Oliphant Memorial June Series. For those of you that don't know, David Oliphant was a beloved member of the OBRA racing community that passed away from cardiac arrest at PIR. In an effort to honor his life Tuesday PIR, the Oliphant family, and Donate Life Northwest came up with the David Oliphant Memorial Series.

This series is a team competition that awards $1200 CASH to the top 3 teams from the 1/2/3 and 3/4 race. The top three racers from each team will be awarded points and the team with the most points at the end of the series wins the cash (this cash purse is in addition to the Ex Novo Brewing Company gift certificates already offered).

1/2/3s 1st - $400 2nd - $250 3rd - $100

3/4s 1st - $250 2nd - $150 3rd - $50

The Oliphants and Donate Life Northwest are graciously giving $1200 cash to make this series happen. You have the opportunity to give as well. Visit www.donatelifenw.org to find out how you can give someone the leadout to life. As a team, we can keep people alive.

We would also like to thank the Oliphant Family, Donate Life NorthwestLegacy Health and Jeff Mitchem for all their time, donations and support to make this series possible.
