With weather forecasts in the mid-40s for Saturday, Springfield Raceway officials feel it is best to move the Lil Buk 31 Trick-or-Treat for Breast Cancer Awareness event back a day to Sunday, Oct. 29.

USRA Modifieds will be racing for $600 to win and $100 to start while Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will battle for $500 to win and $60 start the main event. Sunday is the final day for Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points.

Midwest Modz, Legends Cars, Pure Stocks and Factory Stocks will also be racing on this night.

O'Dell Trucking of Neosho, Mo., will be the title sponsor of the event, and local businesses will have booths handing out candy for the kids along with prizes, cup cakes and cash so bring the kids out for a sale Trick-or-Treat Night.

The Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks will be on handing out materials and there will be a 50/50 raffle and donation that will be going to a local family fighting breast cancer.

The pit gate on Sunday will open at 11:30 a.m. and gradnstands will open at 2 p.m. Hot laps begin at 3 and racing will begin around 3:15.

Grandstand tickets are $17 for adults and kids are free. Pit passes are $35.

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 250,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die from the disease this year. Furthermore, about 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men. About 460 of them will die from breast cancer.

After reading those facts, you realize how breast cancer—or any kind of cancer for that matter—can affect each one of our lives so suddenly. Scars and financial burden are not only left mentally but physically that can trouble one or an entire family.

"I would not understand about the effects of breast cancer on one or their family until a very close friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years back at a young age of just 34," said Springfield Raceway promoter Jerry Hoffman. "Today, my friend is a survivor living cancer-free after surgery."
