They donate at least $1000, plus the prize for the best school. Last year they doubled it to 2k (plus school). And that is at the least. There is a lot of stuff to pay for...track, insurance, food, ceremony stuff. Keep in mind the point is for donating to the charity/fund.

Changzuki tied with someone else last year, so they doubled it. On top of him giving me a FREE ROOM, he also donated his winnings back[to the charity]. He doesn't mention it because he has the right idea of don't tell people about the charitable things you do...but I can, because he's an awesome guy and I have a lot of respect for him.

I should note, I am not 100% certain if it is Toyota, or a local dealership. I believe the reps were all from a local place. It could be either one, but I am not sure which. I could see Toyota sending just local people, but I could also see a local dealership wanting to sponsor it for the cause.
