Get the Red Out: Red Mustangs Raise Money for Hurricane Sandy Relief
An entire herd of Ford Mustangs decked out in 50 shades of red made their presence known recently when they came stampeding through the gates of Dover International Speedway, adding a colorful contrast to the Monster Mile’s pavement.
Last month the Red Mustang Registry (RMR) took over Dover for a good cause, to raise money for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. This event, dubbed “Get the Red Out,” was held at the Speedway where members of RMR showed up to get a private tour of the track and take on the Monster Mile in the driver’s seat for the complete track experience.
The whole event was recorded from start to finish for RMR members that couldn’t make it there physically to have a way to participate. A DVD of the final product was compiled by Chris Guiton, a two-time Emmy Award winner for graphic design.
Steve Schatten, president and founder of RMR, and Daniel Ramey, vice president of vendor relations and the event’s coordinator, had this to say about their journey:
"Our goal was to have fun with family and friends and to share our experience with others in order to raise money for those who need it most. If you should meet any RMR member, you will see that we promote family and community. Our goal is to continue to do these events and increase efforts across the nation to do the same. It is more than just Mustang fun, it is Mustang family and we are here to keep that tradition alive.”
