SNOWSHOE, W. Va. (September 6, 2008) --
Racer Productions announced today that it's
sponsoring a golf tournament on Friday,
September 12 at the world-renowned Raven Golf
Club at Snowshoe Mountain. The tournament, which

Down's diligent work has helped many racers and
their families recover from injuries and
associated medical costs.
"We've already had several riders and team
managers register for the event," added Cotter.
"The event will certainly be an appropriate way
to kick of the Snowshoe GNCC."

change, elevated tee boxes and much more.
