One Day Left!

November 30, 2019

Hey all!

I hope everyone is having a good Thanksgiving weekend!

All of us at Jayhawk Motorsports are so ecstatic with the outcome of the project! We hit our goal of $10,000 earlier in the week and we decided to keep pushing to see how far we can get before the project ends! 

The last chance everyone has to donate is Sunday (tomorrow), December 1st, 2019, at Midnight! So, if there's anybody you haven't told about the project yet, you don't have much time left!

We are currently sitting at $11,305, and I couldn't be happier or more proud of all of our supporters. Thank you! The whole team is gleaming with excitement for the 2020 car. All of the donations will go a LONG way this year!

If anyone has any questions, comments or concerns at all please feel free to email me! Have a great rest of your weekend!

I want to express how truly thankful we all are for everything all of our supporters have done for us. 

Manufacturing season is coming up quickly as the last few final ideas are being finished up in the design process. 

Currently, we have raised $9,335. We have 16 days left to raise $665! It makes me so happy to see all of the donations come in from our wonderful family, friends, and fans! 

I want to encourage everyone to keep sharing our project with coworkers, family, and friends. Our team can't thank you enough. 

Keep on sharing!

Spread the Word!

November 06, 2019

Currently the team is in its many stages of the design process. We are currently in the design review stage where we are looking over all of the designs and critiquing them to make the car perfect. The team needs your support now more than ever. The manufacturing season is coming up quickly, and in order to be able to utilize all of the materials we need, we need a ton of support. 

All in all, the whole team appreciates everything our supporters do for us, and we hope to see you at all of our events!

Just a reminder, so far, we have raised $6,050 within the first 3 weeks! Our project is only open for one more month for us to reach our goal, if not exceed it! So please spread the word! If all of our alumni donate $100 each, we would be able to raise $50,000! 

For the engineer in all of you; mathematically, we would only need to raise $987.50 per week in order to meet our goal. So please spread the word! 

Again, we thank you for all that you do.

Email me if you have any questions!
