Benefit for storm victims this weekend at Salem Speedway
Lots of benefits have taken place to help those affected by the tornadoes on March 2, but none have been in the works longer than the two day music festival planned this Friday and Saturday at Salem Speedway. One of the event’s organizers, Eric Ham, said he started putting this together on March 3, the day after the devestating storms moved through the region. The intial idea has blossomed into a two day event with more than 30 bands on three stages at one of the most famous race tracks in the country.
