            This race is to honor the memory of a good friend and fellow modified racer Greg Schilling. Greg raced modifieds with his brothers from 1991 to 2004 and he ran #99.

In 2003 Greg Schilling was diagnosed with colon cancer. He died November 25th, 2008. Within that time Greg remained optimistic about life. He realized the importance of helping others during difficult times. In September 2008 the community pulled together to help Greg & his family through a tough time in their life.

A memorial fund has been established in memory of Greg by his family. As this fund grows the money will be put back into the community in the form of scholarships for a Fort Frye and Waterford High School senior graduate in honor of Greg. To date, $5,000 has been donated in Scholarships to graduating seniors.

In addition to the scholarships, the fund also assists individuals or families that have an illness or a life altering event that requires financial assistance. To date, over $7,500 has been handed out to the following individuals.  

  • Family with medical crisis (They have two boys with Muscular Dystrophy.)
  • FOP Lodge (This is an organization that helps families during the Christmas Season that are struggling financially.)
  • Cancer patient #1
  • Cancer patient #2
  • Family with a 5 year old with Cancer.
  • Family #1 that their son was in an auto accident. (This was to help with traveling expenses.)
  • Cancer patient #3
  • Family with a 7 year old with Cancer.
  • Family #2 that their son was in an auto accident. (This was to help with traveling expenses.)
  • Cancer patient #4
