This weekend is the sixth annual Zippy’s Crusade for Kids charity snowmobile ride in Inlet, NY. Reigning NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will be in attendance at the event, from Friday, January 27th, until Saturday the 28th.
Zippy’s Crusade for Kids is a non-profit event to raise money for kids in need throughout the community. A tradition of the annual event is to surprise the recipients with the donations, which have been kept a secret until the event. Three area families will be very happy special guests at the presentation.

The snowmobile ride itself wont leave until 11am Saturday morning, after riders fill up at the 10am brunch. The ride will return to the Ole Barn for a full buffet dinner, more raffles, auctions and presentation of the donations on Saturday evening.
Tony Stewart, driver of the #14 Office Depot car will be the big shot at the event. He will be surrounded by many other members of the racing community; pit crews, Sprint Car racers, SPEED TV reporters, and The Postman Steve Post.
