Tickets for the biennial raffle are available for just twenty dollars each or six for one hundred dollars. The winner of the raffle will receive a state-of-the-art Eagle Motorsports winged sprint car, complete with a brand-new 410-cubic-inch Don Ott Racing Engine, and the winning ticket will be drawn on December 21, 2012.
