Ouachita Parish Sheriff Jay Russell joined Jane and Gus Campbell at the races on a balmy night in late August, as Revolution Park honored Law Enforcement and Military service members. The sheriff wasn’t the only dignitary in attendance, either.

In addition to Sheriff Russell, OPSO Chief Deputy Marc Mashaw was on hand, as was U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister. They were among the dozens of law officers, military service members and veterans who came out for the night of racing and entertainment. Sherriff Russell, Col. Mashaw and Gus himself kicked off the night by accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in centerfield.

The Jeff Albright Band wowed the crowd with their musical talent before the announcer called for the drivers to start their engines and ushered in a heart-stopping night of race action.
