Rock Springs, WY (July 18, 2019) – The Wyoming Department of Transportation recently swung in to assist a local charity Fast Cars & Foster Kids with one of their annual autocross events at the First Choice Ford parking lot. When an unforeseen mechanical issue prevented the organization from cleaning and sweeping the lot for the safety of the competitors, WYDOT stepped in to make sure the event could run smoothly and safely.  WYDOT crew members Paul McGuire and Bill Croy brought in a water truck and sweeper to clean the lot, so drivers could compete on clean pavement.


The autocross event, organized by Fast Cars & Foster kids, was put on to raise money for children in foster care in Sweetwater County. Their next event will take place at Western Wyoming Community College on Aug. 10 and will include a car show, autocross and a burnout contest. There will be an additional autocross race at the First Choice Ford parking lot on Dewar Drive on Aug. 13-14.
