2024 RMVR Grid Bids for Kids

The Grid Bids for Kids is a frivolous, fun, goofy way to fundraise for pediatric cancer research by enabling donations to set the starting positions for the Race Against Kids’ Cancer‘s “Fun’d Race” held on Saturday afternnon of the race weekend.

By making a tax-deductible donation to The Morgan Adams Foundation, you can move a driver up or down the starting grid.  Which means you can move any driver (including yourself) to the pole, or even push them to the back of the grid.

What is the “Fun’d Race”?

The “Fun’d Race is the name RAKC has given to the traditional RMVR fun race. Unlike normal race sessions which assign the grid positions based on the results of the prior session’s finishing order, the Fun’d Race will use a “Grid Bid” donation system to assign the starting grid positions.  Like all fun races, the driver’s finish positions in the Fun’d Race do not affect their starting position in the normal races held later in the weekend.

How Does it Work?

  • Simply select the run group of the driver you wish to move (or “bump”) and click on the driver’s name to highlight them.  You can select Find a Driver is you don’t know their run group
  • Select the bump action (up, down, to the pole, to the back)
  • Add a friendly note that will be included in the email notification the driver receives
  • You can repeat the above steps if you want to bump more than one driver

    Bump a Driver Up/Down

    The Grid Bids for Kids is a frivolous, fun, goofy way to shake free a few more donations for pediatric cancer research. We are using the Grid Bids for Kids as a creative way to assign the starting grid positions for each of the run groups for Saturday’s Fun’d Race at the Race Against Kids’ Cancer. By making a tax-deductible donation to The Morgan Adams Foundation, you can move a driver up or down the grid, move yourself to the pole, or give someone a gift by placing them on the pole position.

    What is the “Fun’d Race”?

    The Fun’d Race is the name RAKC has given to the traditional RMVR fun race. Unlike normal race sessions which assign the grid positions based on the results of the prior session’s finishing order, the Fun’d Race will use a “Grid Bid” donation system to assign the starting grid positions.  Like all fun races, the driver’s finish positions in the Fun’d Race do not affect their starting position in the normal races held later in the weekend.

    When is the Fun’d Race?

    This race is the second race for all run groups on the Saturday of the RAKC race weekend. It typically starts right after the lunch break.

    How Does it Work?

    • Donations made on behalf of a driver can “bump” or move a driver’s position up or down the starting grid
    • Donations made to move a driver up the grid add to their bump total, and those made to move them down subtract from their bump total
    • In each run group, the drive with the highest positive bump total will be in the pole position and the one with the most negative total will be in the last position
    • The rest of the grid will be slotted based on this order:
      1. their positive/negative bump total
      2. their RAKC sponsorship total
      3. their seniority in RMVR (more senior ahead of less senior)
    • The starting grids will be locked 30 minties prior to each run group’s scheduled start time
