Benefit for The Real Deal, Shane Hmiel

Posted By on Fri, Nov 5, 2010 at 1:50 PM

Former NASCAR driver and current USAC star Shane Hmiel was involved in a nearly fatal accident in October while running his Silver Crown car at Terre Haute Action Track where he broke his back and neck in two places. And with that his hopes of running in the Indy 500 turned to hopes of ever walking again... and now, he is racing to recover.

As he lies in a hospital bed in the ICU undergoing multiple surgeries, the bills are adding up adding insult to serious injury.

So, there's going to be a good party for a good cause, to support Shane's race to recovery. Wednesday, Nov. 17, starting at 4 p.m. there will be a silent auction at the Rusty Rudder, one of the racing community’s favorite hangouts. There will be auction items, live music and some of racings biggest names.

Bidding will end at 8 p.m. but the party will continue at the Lake Norman Comedy Zone with comedian Shaun Jones, one of the nations top touring stand up comedians who has been featured on television stand up hours and acted alongside Jamie Foxx in feature films.

To attend the event you will need to purchase a ticket in the form of a $40 donation here. In addition to the party, everyone that attends will receive an exclusive “Heal The Real Deal” t-shirt, and be entered in a raffle for some great prizes. And all food and beverage proceeds will go towards Shane’s recovery. So cheers to Shane Hmiel, because he's the real deal and in time will heal, with our help!
