SONOMA, California — Fourteen lucky race fans will win a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the 10th annual eBay Motors Charity Auction on Sunday, June 24, at the Toyota/Save Mart 350.
"The auction will take place at 10 a.m. (PDT) in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle, just two hours before the start of the Toyota/Save Mart 350."
Race fans can bid on the chance to take a slow-speed lap with a top NASCAR driver, including Dale Earnhardt Jr., around the 10-turn, 1.99-mile road course during driver introductions. Both the driver and winner will be in the back of a Toyota Tundra. They will also get to watch a portion of pre-race ceremonies from the start/finish line.
The auction will take place at 10 a.m. (PDT) in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle, just two hours before the start of the Toyota/Save Mart 350.
Below is the list of drivers being auctioned off:
• AJ Allmendinger
• Marcos Ambrose
• Dale Earnhardt Jr.
In addition to the drivers, fans will also bid on a number of unique items from NASCAR drivers, as well as Bay Area sports teams, including a Jeff Gordon-signed fire suit; Dale Earnhardt Jr.-signed Wrangler jeans; a Jimmie Johnson-signed quarter panel; a Buster Posey-signed San Francisco Giants jersey; and a Patrick Willis-signed 49er jersey.
Fans must pre-register to be eligible to bid. Registration is FREE and opens at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle.
The best part is all proceeds from this event benefit qualified youth groups in Sonoma County through Speedway Children’s Charities. This event raised more than $31,000 in 2011 and the charity hopes to top that number this year.
