Event Description:
SkyWest Airlines welcomes businesses from around the world to St. George for Southern Utah's premier charity event: Mini Indy! The event runs from March 21-23 and raises money for local charities in partnership with United Way Dixie. Over the past 18 years, SkyWest Mini Indy has raised more than $1 million to support countless families and individuals through United Way in Southern Utah, including The Learn Center for Families, KidSpace After School Program, Big Brothers Big Sister of Southern Utah, SwitchPoint Community Resource Center, Habitat for Humanity Builds, The Doctors Volunteer Clinic of St. George and The DOVE Center.
            ?We?re proud that Mini Indy has helped SkyWest contribute so much to our community,? said SkyWest, Inc. CEO and President Chip Childs. ?Eighteen years ago, it was just a small go-kart race, but now it?s the industry?s premier charity event attracting local and global businesses,? he continued. ?We?re excited to welcome back these teams and we?re looking forward to enjoy a great round of golf, racing and raising money for charity.?
The charity event kicks-off on March 21 with a private golf tournament for event sponsors at the renowned Sand Hollow golf course. Teams enjoy a great day of golf, camaraderie and competition. Following the golf tournament, on March 22, teams have a practice race day and compete in pit crew competitions.
Racers will start their engines for the main event at the ?Ridgetop Raceway? (former SGU airport) on Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. sharp. In a series of races throughout the day, teams will push their go-karts to the limit in pursuit of becoming the 2018 Mini Indy Grand Champion! This year, 27 teams will be racing the exhilarating course that includes tight turns, top speed pit stops and an always thrilling finish line.
Media members are invited to attend the race, where they can meet with the teams and experience Mini Indy first hand. Photo, video and interview opportunities will be available. Learn more about SkyWest?s Mini Indy, and check out photos and race highlights from past events at www.miniindy.org.
