For me the sign that winter is about over is……The Daytona 500. Austin Dillon is on the pole in the #3 car. It’s the first time the #3 has been on a Sprint Cup car since Dale Earnhardt died at the end of the Great Race in 2001. Here’s what else is going on.

It’s the 5th annual Daytona 500 Action & Auction at the Elks Lodge in Kirkwood beginning at noon. The Broome County Animal Care Council will host the event. They are a registered non-profit organization which receives no government funding and does not euthanize animals for population control.

The shelter is at 131 Washington Avenue, Endicott. Because of the huge need for cat food at the shelter, the Animal Care Council would like you to bring an extra donation of cat food for their furry feline friends.

This year’s Grand Marshal is Jim Zacharias, who along with family and friends will celebrate his 81st birthday. Zacharias is the winningest driver in the history of Owego’s Shangri-la Speedway.

A huge selection of auction items and racing memorabilia will be on display, with silent and Chinese auctions taking place to benefit the Animal Care Council. Live auctions will be limited to avoid interruption of the racing action. To get directions to Elk Lodge and to find out more about the Action & Auction go here.

It should be a great race, I know it’s for a great cause. Let’s get ready for racing and let’s help out the Broome County Animal Care Council.
