Auburn Hills, Mich. - To top off a perfect weekend at the Las Vegas Motorspeedway, Champion Motors won the Charity Challenge organized by rival dealership and Speedvision GT competitor Stoddard Import Cars.

Pompano Beach, Fla.-based Champion Motors was challenged in Las Vegas to a shootout for charity by Cleveland-based Stoddard Import Cars. The team that placed highest in the Speedvision GT race, either the Audi S4 of Michael Galati or Derek Bell or the Porsche of Scott Bove, would have to purchase 10 tickets ($1,000) and the "losing" team would have purchase 30 tickets ($3,000).

"We're both Porsche/Audi dealerships, so this was a type of "family feud"-Porsche versus Audi," said Mike Peters, Director of Race Operations for Champion Racing. "With Mike's win, it was a double victory for our team at Vegas."

The Racing for the Rainbow charity will raffle off a brand-new Porsche 996 at the 2001 season-opener at Texas Motor Speedway. Proceeds from the event benefit the Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, the NFL Alumni, Cleveland Chapter and the Mariana Sports Challenge-all dedicated to improving the quality of life for children.
