The Race for FasterCures

Going faster, pushing the boundaries requires teamwork, collaboration, innovation, and resources. Everyone needs to be focused on the mission: whether it's accelerating the development of an important new medical treatment or making a race car go faster.

This is why FasterCures partnered with 17-year-old race car driver Andrew Palmer to launch its first Dream Cars raffle. Andrew is one of the top kart racing drivers in the U.S. and the 2010 Rotax National Champion.

At its simplest, this raffle sells for $200/ticket, each with the potential to win two extraordinary Porsches – a white 2012 911 Turbo S and a white 2012 Cayenne Turbo – and $75,000 in cash (note of clarification: ONE winner gets the two cars and cash).

At its core, this is a partnership between two nontraditional allies – a Washington DC nonprofit determined to improve the medical research system, and a senior in high school determined to make a difference.

Andrew and his team of avid motorsports enthusiasts (including his father, David Palmer and Bruce Deifik) are pledging to raise $1 million through the Dream Cars raffle. They’re building excitement for the cause by racing the Dream Cars in the Tire Rack One Lap of America race, an eight-day event consisting of 19 on-track race stages conducted at nine different venues separated by 3,350 miles. Today is day 7.

Why are we doing this? As Andrew so aptly put it, “we all know someone who could use a faster cure.”

Enter today for your chance to win the Dream Cars (plus $75,000) and support a very important and essential cause. Visit or call 1.855.624.4392.
