Mark Hopper, longtime CCD fixture, had a stroke friday and is currently hospitalized. Mark owns and operates Hopper Automotive in Mattoon, IL. He has a long road to recovery and will obviously be unable to work for some time.
Let's come together as racers and friends to help Mark during this difficult time. He could use our well wishes, love, and prayers and no donation amount is too small. All money raised will go to Mark for medical and living expenses.
Mark has always been right there if the track or racer needed anything and now its our turn to give back.
Thank you in advance!
Katrina Murphy and Rodney Viehland
More on Mark...
In 2016, Mark was inducted into the CCD Hall of Fame.
"Our first inductee into the 2016 Coles County Dragway USA hall of fame is someone who you've probably met in the last 20 or so years at the track, you just may not have realized it..... quiet, humble, and behind the scenes as much as possible is the way he likes it, even though he races a dragster that most everyone would know if they saw it because of uniquely familiar paint scheme...... what most people don't know, is that he has been here helping, working, racing, and being as much of an ambassador to CCD as anyone has...... He's been a proud sponsor of the memorial day race since 2007, and yet his business name doesn't adorn that race, his family name does...... because that is the way that he wanted it..... "Family is more important" was how he put it, and his extended family at the race track is next in line for him..... A man, who has given so much to others, will help ANYBODY who needs it, has always been a helping hand to anyone who needed it, and has been a true friend to CCD for many years......our first inductee for 2016, Mr. Mark Hopper."
