ST GEORGE, Utah – Southern Utah’s premier charity event, the annual SkyWest Mini Indy, races into St. George on March 24. This exciting event brings together businesses from around the world and raises money for local charities through the United Way Dixie. Over the past 17 years, the event has raised more than $1 million to support countless families and individuals in Southern Utah.
“Mini Indy is part of what SkyWest does to give back to our hometown. What started with just a few go-carts 17 years ago has become a huge event bringing in teams locally and from around the world to raise money for a good cause,” said Mike Thompson, SkyWest Airlines COO. “We’re looking forward to once again being back on the race track and welcoming these business and teams to St. George next week.”
The checkered flag will fly at the “Ridgetop Raceway” (former SGU airport) on Friday, March 24 at 10am sharp. There the teams will push their go-carts to the limit through a tricky race track in pursuit of the Mini Indy Grand Champion trophy. The event’s fierce competition takes place in a series of heats throughout the day.
Building up to the event, SkyWest and the City of St. George hosts more than 45 businesses and teams from around the world. From the private golf tournament at Sunbrook Golf Course to a race dinner and auction, Mini Indy delivers an unforgettable experience for everyone involved while giving a turbo boost to local charities.
