The Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge: 24 Hours on the Test Track
Raising funds to support the abused and neglected children of Tippecanoe County
The 2013 Subaru CASA Cycling Challenge took place August 3-4, 2013 at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. test track in Lafayette. The Challenge is an extreme event that allows individuals and teams to test their endurance over a 24-hour period while raising funds to support the CASAs for Kids Fund.
Thanks to our riders, sponsors, donors, and many volunteers, this year’s ride brought in over $76,000 for abused and neglected children!
Thirty teams and twelve solo riders participated, with teams consisting of from 2 to 10 people. Riders and teams ranged from hard-core cyclists to those just along for a fun ride to help abused and neglected kids. Planet Adventure provided electronic lap-counting and timing services with live on-site results posted on flat screen TVs.
For individual riders it was a race against the clock to see who could reach their personal mileage goal. Rusty Yeager completed 170 laps – for a total of 340 miles in 24 hours. For teams, the ride is like a relay, with only one member of a team on the track at a time. The top team was Team Tucker who compiled an amazing 258 laps for 516 miles!

We are grateful to Subaru of America for becoming our presenting sponsor. SIA once again went above and beyond to host a great event – providing the venue, a new parking lot, electricity, restroom facilities, entertainment stage, staff and countless other amenities. They are a true partner in this. And Alcoa, Inc fielded 4 teams, staffed the West Gate for the entire event, provided great spectators, and amazing financial support. CASAs for Kids Fund is happy to raise funds to support the wonderful work of Tippecanoe CASA and the children they serve.
