Charlottetown, PE - Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and Red Shores Summerside are gearing up for a busy season with exciting harness racing series, Regional and National driving championships, signature events and the third annual Drive for Charity presented by Red Shores.

The Drive for Charity event features 13 of the Island's top drivers, based on 2013 statistics from Charlottetown and Summerside racetracks.
