Anderson County resident Tom Borgia has been invited to participate in the Fourth Annual Legends at Budds Creek drag racing weekend, to be held Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 15 at Maryland International Raceway in Mechanicsville, Md.

Borgia, who has raced at several tracks in Kentucky and surrounding states over the last few years, is the current leader in the stick shift division at the Edgewater, Ohio track, located just outside Cincinnati. Because of that lead and his championship at Edgewater last year, Borgia has been invited to participate in one of the biggest drag racing events of the year nationally. A promtional flyer calls the event, “The Super Bowl of stick shift racing.”

Racers from across the nation are to descend on Mechanicsville, located about an hour south of Washington, D.C.

Anyone wishing to help Borgia defray the cost of the trip can contact him at Anderson Automotive Repair at 859-0065.
