FORT WORTH-DALLAS (March 8, 1999) - Race fans will get a chance to purchase a "piece of history" at the Winn-Dixie Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) Auction. The event, which is open to the public, will be held immediately following the March 27 Coca-Cola 300 NASCAR Busch Series race at the Village of Champions, located outside Gate 7. The unique event will give race fans the opportunity to bid on more than 50 memorabilia items from NASCAR drivers, including Jeff Gordon, Rusty Wallace, Dale Jarrett, and Dale Earnhardt.
"The Winn-Dixie Speedway Children’s Charities Auction is a great event for both SCC and the race fans," said Alicia Jenkins, director of the Texas chapter of SCC. "The profits allow SCC to raise money for children’s organizations in the metroplex while the public has an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind authentic race memorabilia."
Race collectibles for the auction include autographed hoods from Dale Jarrett’s #88 Ford Batman car and Kenny Irwin’s #28 Ford Joker car. Sheet metal from the cars of Gordon, Earnhardt, Mike Skinner, and Rick Rudd will be available for purchase. Other items include: the side of Jarrett’s Quality Care Service/Ford Credit car from the Daytona 500; the nose of the #18 MBNA Busch car driven by J.D. Gibbs; a hood from the #41 Kodiak Chevrolet Winston Cup car driven by David Green; Steve Grissom’s driver’s suit; autographed helmets from Gordon, Jarrett, and Wallace; and signed die-cast cars of Ken Schrader’s Skoal/US Tobacco Chevrolet and Jeremy Mayfield’s Mobil 1 Ford.
"The auction will have something for everyone," said Jenkins. "We are thrilled with the donations we have received from the NASCAR drivers."
