Coal Corporation, one of the areas largest economic contributors and
employers in the Wise County area, is now a part of Southern Coal
Corporation, a multi-state employer in the mining industry with
subsidiaries in Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia.
It is A&Gís privilege to be the sponsor of the Super
Cup Stock Car Series and teaming up with them to support the Food
Bank of Wise County, Inc. It
is also with great pleasure that A&G is joined by the Virginia
Mining Association and all of our Friends of Coal as an associate
sponsor in our efforts to help the Food Bank and the community.
Community is the basis on which A&G was built and when
the community is in need, we are glad to help.
August 7, A&G Coal will host its third annual Race Night at The
Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA featuring the Super Cup Stock
Car Series Coal Minerís 100 along with the ISCAR Series and the
Diamond Lawn service Legends series.

$5-Children 7-12 and 6 and under are free.
Wise County Food Bank Volunteers will be on hand to take up
donations of non-perishable canned or packaged food items and those
fans donating food will receive $1 off per can (limit 3 cans per
fan) totaling $3 off front gate admission to the races that
nightís activities. Where
else can you enjoy racing at a reasonable price and support a needy
cause at the same time?
Food Bank of Wise County, Inc. has been providing food to the needy
for 25 years. Many local
churches, businesses, civic organizations, individuals, Wise County,
the City of Norton, and FEMAís Emergency Food and Shelter Program
generously support the Food Bank.
The Boy Scouts, the Post Office, churches, schools, and other
organizations conduct food drives.
These contributions enable the Food Bank to assist over 560
families a month. However,
the number of families seeking assistance has increased 30% in
recent months severely straining the Food Bank's resources.
Reluctantly the Food Bank has had to reduce the number of
items that it previously provided in its food baskets.
The Food Bank commends A&G Coal and the Super Cup Stock
Car Series for their efforts to assist it in meeting the increasing
nightís activities will begin with an autograph session at 5:45 on
the race track for both the local and touring competitors with their
race cars so everyone will have a chance to meet their favorite
drivers. The racing
action is slated to begin at 7pm with 25 laps from the Diamond Lawn
Service legend cars and the LPR Pure Four division up next with 25
laps for double points. Then
we will have the first of the Twin 50 lappers from the ISCAR Series.
The locals will take to the pavement once again, in the
rapidly growing Late Model Charger division which will run for the
double points at the checkers in a 40 lap race followed by, A&G's
Night at The Lonesome Pine Raceway featuring, The Super Cup Stock
Car Series in the A&G Coal Miners 100 presented by Virginia
Mining Association and friends of Coal, the ISCARS will take the 3/8
mile oval for the final of the Twin 50ís and wind up the night.
