The final day for live harness racing in Clinton Raceways 2011 season is just hours away. Post time is set for 1:30pm for the 31st Annual Charity Driver's Challenge.

Four of Canada's top drivers including Jody Jamieson, Mark MacDonald, Sylvain Filion and Mario Baillargeon will be on hand to compete, along side Clinton's own, Trevor Henry, Bruce Richardson, Jason Brewer and Alfie Carroll.

All driver's on today's card will be supporting the local high school, Central Huron Secondary School and their challenge day initiatives. This is the third year that the high school had benefited from the days events, including a bake sale, silent auction, car wash and BBQ.

The challenge takes place on races 1-11 and works on a points system, most points wins! Race 12 will feature the $20,000 Ray McLean Memorial Pace.

The day has also been dubbed as "tutu" day, as it will see track announcer, Greg Blanchard sporting a pink tutu, as a result of a friendly wager he lost on Legends Day with Marketing Manager Jessica Carnochan. He'll make his debut on the homestretch following the fifth race on the days card.

The sun is shining in Clinton, and it's a beautiful day to take in some races! Live race post time 1:30pm.
