Chapman Dodge treats children from St. Jude's to night at races

Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram recently treated 15 kids from St. Jude's Ranch for Children to hours of go-kart racing, arcade games and pizza at Pole Position Raceway. Ranging in ages from 5-14, the young guests enjoyed an exciting night full of roaring engines and laughter.

"One of the biggest reasons I love working here with the Chapman Automotive Group is that they are always giving back to the community," said sales consultant Ricky "Cowboy" Maples, who put together the outing with the support of the dealership. "Seeing these kids having fun and being carefree was more rewarding than I can tell you."

St. Jude's Ranch for Children serves abused, abandoned and neglected children and families creating new chances, new choices and new hope in a safe homelike environment. The organization was formed in 1967 and is located in Boulder City. Anyone interested in volunteering or donating to St. Jude's Ranch should call 702-294-7100 or visit

"The Las Vegas community has been very kind to the Chapman dealerships," added General Manager Don Hamrick, "and it's part of our family-owned culture here to make sure we continue to contribute to the city in which we live and do business. St. Jude's Ranch is a fantastic charity and very worthy of our support."

Pole Position Raceway and its owner, Brad Mark, have a long-standing relationship with Chapman Dodge and generously make their facilities available for hosting charitable promotions. Also, customers at Chapman can receive two complimentary Pole Position race tickets with a test drive.
