Jeg's announced at the annual DRAW (Drag Racing Association of Women) auction, held Thursday night, that the proceeds from their apparel trailer sales at this years US Nationals would be given to the charitable organization. Jeg's 1/4-Mile Charities owns and operates the apparel trailer.

"DRAW is an organization that has helped many injured racers through the years. They have always been there to lend a helping hand," explained John Coughlin, VP of Jeg's Automotive. "We are extremely excited to help DRAW and celebrate NHRA's 50th Anniversary. Our goal is that the year 2000 will be a record fund raising year for DRAW!"

At future NHRA races proceeds will be split between DRAW and a local charity from the area where the NHRA race is being held. Last year DRAW raised over $490,000 to help drivers and their families in times of need. Jeg's 1/4-Mile Charities has set a goal of $20,000 for the 46th Annual US Nationals.
