The go kart track, or Kartway, at Genesee Speedway will host a night of racing in memory of Violet Davis.

The first “Alzheimer’s Racing for Memories” is scheduled for Sept. 3 at the Genesee County Fairgrounds, 5056 East Main Street Rd., Batavia, and will race money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

The event will include basket and 50/50 raffles, food, and racing.

Raffle tickets are $1 each, or $3 for two tickets, $5 for eight tickets, $10 for 18 tickets or $20 for 38 tickets. Those with needs do not have to be present to win.

Pit gates open at 5:30 p.m. Pit cost is $15. Hot laps begin at 6:45 p.m. Grandstands are free.

All classes will be racing tonight, with increased purses for winners and a special “Violet Davis Memorial” in the Lites class.

“This event is put together by Jason Stanton and purse money has been collected and raised through him and added into our weekly purses. It’s an important night, bringing awareness to Alzheimer’s and a night in memory of Violet Davis,” the Kartway said in a Facebook post.

All proceeds will go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Organizers hope to make the night an annual event.

Additional race dates at the Kartway are 7 p.m. Sept. 10, 17 and 23.
