TEMPLE (May 3, 2013)--Peacock RC Hobbies will host a RC Truck Race to benefit victims of the West explosion Sunday.
Gates will open at 8:30 a.m. and racing will begin at 11 a.m.
"We've got people coming from Waco, Dallas, and Austin," Peacock RC Hobbies Owner Stacey Peacock said. "It's something that we do every Sunday for fun."
This Sunday, all proceeds raised throughout the day will go towards helping victims of the West explosion, Peacock said.
"We're going to donate money to the West nursing home and we've got a couple of guys that race with us who have either lost their home or had their homes damaged because of the explosion," Peacock said.
The event will be free to watch with a $15 entry-fee to race.
"All money raised from entry-fees and food sold will go towards West," Peacock said. "It's just a big benefit to help out people and show we care,"
Peacock RC Hobbies is located at 1906 East Adams Avenue.
