I am very pleased to announce Atco's first 8.50 Index race of the season scheduled for this Saturday, May 8th will be dedicated to the memory of Susan "JerzeyGirl" Verzilli on behalf of the 8.50 Index racers. I'd like to give a huge thanks to Joe Sway, Sr. and Dana at Atco for making this possible.

As many of you know, Susan, wife of fellow racer Bill Verzilli passed away in January. She was a wonderful person, devoted to her husband and children Kim and Billy. Susan was very dedicated to drag racing, being a loyal crew chief to her husband, as well as being involved with the 8.50 Index series. She loved being at the track and always had a smile on her face for everyone. Susan always welcomed everyone into their extended racing family.

Atco is Bill and Susan's home track which makes this dedication to her all the more special. Please join us at Atco on Saturday and be a part of this special dedication to her. Susan's family will also be attending, so let's put on a great show for them in her honor! We will also be presenting the memorial collection to Bill and his family after the 8.50 finals in our pit area. You are all welcome to be a part of it!

Regards,
Craig and Ali Buscio

Ali Buscio got the ball rolling on this and all of us appreciate her hard work and what she is doing for the Verzilli family.

Ali wanted the right venue to honor Sue and decided Atco was the appropriate place at the first 8.50 race of the season.

8.50 is a tight family and Sue was one of our biggest supporters--we all miss her dearly.

Anything we can do for the family is much appreciated--and thanks to everyone that is helping and donating

Re: Susan "JerzeyGirl" Verzilli Memorial Collection - SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!

We just wanted to personally thank everyone who contributed to the Susan Verzilli memorial fund. As you know, Saturday's Atco Raceway 8.50 Index race was dedicated to Susan by the 8.50 Index racers. A big huge thanks is in order to Joe Sway, Sr. and the Atco Raceway staff as well for making this happen for us and for the hospitality they extended to Susan's entire family. It was quite an emotional day for everyone and to have Susan's family there for the dedication made it all the more special.

We'd also like to thank the following people for their help: Mark (noricehere, godragracing.org), Mike from gonedragracing.com, Monty Mikho (YellowBullet.com), and John (unk) Campbell. Without your help we never would have received such an overwhelming response. You guys are the best, thanks!
