CHARLOTTE, N.C. (September 13, 2000) -- If you've ever wanted to be on a NASCAR Winston Cup team this is your chance! Thanks to CITGO Racing and Ultimatebid.com, one race fan and a guest will join NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler and the Wood Brothers CITGO Racing Team for a behind-the-scenes experience at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida.
The package includes all-access credentials to the pit and garage area of Homestead-Miami Speedway, along with a chance to participate on the Wood Brothers pit crew and view the race from "behind the wall". You'll have lunch with the team, dress in team apparel and throw on a headset to listen-in to Sadler and his crew's conversations during the race. Bidding for the auction is slated from September 15 - 25, 2000 on Ultimatebid.com.
According to Elliott Sadler, "I think this is great. There are so many fans that ask me every week how they can get into the garage or get involved with a race team. This will be an awesome experience and this is a great year to be on our team. This team turned 50 years old this year so this is really a once in a lifetime opportunity. Best of all the proceeds will benefit Jerry's Kids and MDA research."
CITGO is the largest corporate contributor to The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), and has elected to donate net proceeds from the auction to MDA.
Since its launch earlier this year, Ultimatebid.com has auctioned off a number of packages to benefit charity and non-profit organizations. The Tiger Woods Foundation, Women's Sports Foundation and United Cerebral Palsy are just a few of the charities that have received donations as a result of auctions on the site.
UltimateBid.com is an online auction-based marketplace enabling fans to bid on a broad range of unique experiences. These experiences, many of which are anchored by star personalities and athletes, feature VIP access to the world's hottest entertainment and sporting events.
