Revving Engines for Charity at the Annual SkyWest Mini Indy

For the 19th year running, SkyWest Airlines, along with local partners and airline vendors, hosted the annual Mini Indy, the airline industry’s premier charity event. Teams traveled to Southern Utah from around the globe to compete on a newly-designed track that started with a wet corner followed by twists and turns that challenged the drivers in go-karts tapping out at 24 miles-per-hour.

The event combines the heart-pumping, Indy-style race with pit stops, a BBQ competition, a golf tournament and team themes, including designs of the cars for those who bring home the big trophies. While the trophies and competition are all part of the fun, the main focus of the event is raising money for charity. This year, the event raised record-breaking funds for United Way Dixie and the SkyWest Scholarship Fund.

The event embodies the spirit of SkyWest Airlines, giving back to our people and the communities in which we live and work. Mini Indy is just one way SkyWest focuses on our people and those in need.

SkyWest Airlines’ Mini Indy brings businesses from all over the world to Utah’s Dixie in the name of fun and fundraising. The three-day event culminates with the airline industry’s premier charity race, where teams race their go-carts at speeds of up to 27 mph in hopes of the coveted grand champion trophy. Proceeds go to United Way, which in turn benefits numerous local charities. Since its inception, Mini Indy has raised more than one million dollars for United Way and SkyWest’s Scholarship Fund. It’s just one of the ways SkyWest gives back to the communities where we live and work!
