On a gorgeous overcast September evening at Speedworld Raceway Park in Surprise, AZ a tribute was held to honor our fallen heroes from the twin towers and our military men and women who have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we hold dear. Part of the entry fee went to raise money for the Military Assistance Mission. The night was full of show cars shining brightly, and drag cars making pass after pass, to be capped off with jet cars turning night into day. The show had 25+ cars vying for commemorative plaques featuring the fallen towers. Team Swat , Team Aftermath, and Team JDM Fresh  all took home a hand full of plaques. The racers had three categories:  fastest e. t., best reaction time, and quickest 60’ time. Great job to all the participants and winners. The overall feeling of the night was fun and exciting with a very poignant presentation of colors by the Luke Air Force Color Guard. We here at CSJ want to give thanks to all the men and women that give of themselves to make this country great!
