You've heard of the DRF's Handicapalooza Tour? Well, this ain't it. Instead,
late this Summer and early this Fall, MCCHUMP #1, the Chumpmobile or a
reasonable facsimile thereof, and the McChump Racing Tour are hitting the
road for yet another award winning series of racetrack visits.
Introducing McChumpalooza 2000, a 2-month, 20-track and 0-stinkin-casino
continent-hopping tour culminating with the annual Derby List bash at Kentucky Downs
on September 23, that will bring nothing of practical value to racing fans across
North America, but will try to raise money for
The United Pegasus Foundation.
Here's how it works: MCCHUMP #1 will conduct a veritable handicapping
clinic at as many of the 20 tracks listed as possible. He will cover such
topics as how to play maiden quarterhorses in futurity trials and finding
the real value at the beer stand. And he will give you some priceless insights
on the food at the concessions stands, as well as show you how to use the
latest weapon in the war on simulcasting, live racing.
All Derby Listers or other Internet racing fans who come out to meet the McChump
Tour will receive a comped $5 bet on a horse of their choice on the card, with the
proceeds to be donated
to the United Pegasus Fund. Plus, throughout the Tour, Derby Listers who cannot
meet the Tour can contribute to United Pegasus with a pledge based on total
mileage, both air and ground, or whatever type of pledge they want to pledge. Bettors and
pledgers get their name on the list below. Those
who win or pledge $25 or more will receive a free copy of "Making Tracks", THE guide to
the Podunk Tracks of Our Land, courtesy of McChump Industries. If interested, in meeting
up or making a pledge, email at the address on the main McChump page.
MCCHUMP #1 will also make a $5 win wager on a race of his choice at the track
he is at each day, with all winnings donated to United Pegasus.
