Racing Charity Gives Race Fans Chance to Ride Along with NASCAR Chase Drivers
Speedway Children's Charities has partnered with online auction house GoMotorBids.com to offer race fans the unique opportunity of a pre-race ride-along with one of the twelve drivers involved in NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup at the upcoming Bank of America 500 on October 11. The net proceeds raised from the auction benefit Speedway Children's Charities directly.
The auctions end on October 5, 2008, and all are being offered with no reserve prices. "It's truly going to be an amazing experience for twelve NASCAR fans", said Russ Dickey, Director of Marketing for GoMotorBids. "Getting to ride along with one of the most famous race car drivers in the world today, at one of the most famous tracks, all while helping a great cause."
The drivers that are competing in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup are: Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Burton, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart.
Each auction includes two VIP passes that will allow access for the winner and a friend to attend the pre-race activities at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. A meet & greet plus the opportunity for photos and one autograph from the driver are also part of this experience.
