Benefit Car Show in Oklahoma City: "A Walk With Blake" June 26, 2010

Theonepercent.net is proud to host its first benefit car show of 2010: “A Walk with Blake”

When: June 26, 2010
Time: 9:00am – 2:00pm
Where: Thunder Roadhouse Café in North OKC (900 W. Memorial Road)
Cost: $25 to participate in show (ALL proceeds go to “A Walk with Blake” fund)

On June 24, 2009 Texas Drag racer, Blake Robinson, was the victim of a freak accident when a nitrous bottle exploded at his shop. The accident caused multiple serious injuries. Blake has undergone nearly a dozen surgeries, including an above the knee amputation on his left leg. Blake has been involved in drag racing since he was a teenager, and wants to stay involved any way he can. However, his race car and trailer, as well as a life-long collection of parts have all been sold to meet current needs of medical bills. The cause of the explosion is still under a DOT investigation.

“My main goal at this point is to walk again,” says Blake, who hopes to be outfitted with a prosthetic leg when finances allow for it.

After speaking with Blake for several weeks, myself and theonepercent.net have decided to help a fellow racer out. Our goal is to raise $6600 to cover the cost of a new leg for Blake(which by the way is a fraction of the total cost of retail price but a Texas Prosthetics company has stepped up to the plate for his cause). With your help, you can help someone WALK again! How awesome would that feel?!

DOZENS of generous companies have done their part by sending in parts for us to be able to use as incentive for you to come out and support this cause! All of which will be passed on to YOU through raffle tickets/silent auctions/drawings if you come out and make a personal donation or just by simply entering into the show! Just a few of these items include:

Set of SBC fabricated Valve Covers
Coyles Billet timing Set
