A $25 raffle ticket could end up putting a 2019 Corvette Z06 in your driveway later this year.
The Dale Jr. Foundation is again holding its annual raffle to raise money for Dale Earnhardt’s charity organization for children.
Tickets went on sale starting March 1, and only 10,888 will be sold before the end of the raffle on Aug. 31.
The grand prize is a 2019 2LZ Z06 with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that pumps out 650 horsepower, hooked to a 7-speed manual transmission. The Admiral Blue Metallic car also features the carbon fiber ground effects package, Billy Boat C7 Fusion Exhaust, and Jet Black leather interior. The Dale Jr. Foundation will also pay the taxes on the car.
Secondary prizes are also being offered for tickets purchased between the dates below:
- March 1 – April 15 – $2,000 cash prize
- March 1 – May 15 – $1,000 cash prize
- March 1 – June 30 – Two $500 cash prizes
That means, the earlier you buy your tickets, the more chances you have to win!
Earnhardt Jr., of course, had a long and rewarding NASCAR career, winning XFINITY Series championships in 1998 and 1999, along with the Daytona 500 in 2004 and 2014.
Now that his career is over, though, he says looking back on his achievements, the Dale Jr. Foundation “could very well be one I’m most proud of.”
The foundation’s success has been far beyond his expectations. “Thanks to the generosity of many people, we’ve raised more than $8 million to benefit charities that directly impact our communities, schools, and fellow citizens,” Earnhardt says. “To me nothing is more rewarding than to see people’s lives take a turn for the better and know you might have something to do with it. I’ve said for many years the best part of my race weekend is meeting kids through Make-A-Wish, which we started doing long before the start of the Dale Jr. Foundation. In fact, these kids were part of the inspiration that led us to start the foundation.”
