KNOXVILLE, IOWA (October 29, 2015) – Once again, the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville, Iowa, will be teaming up with the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame in Florence, Kentucky, and the DIRT Motorsports Hall of Fame in Weedsport, New York, to host a fundraising auction for all three museums during the World Finals in Charlotte, North Carolina. This year’s auction will be held on Saturday, November 7, at the Z-Max Dragway pavilion at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and it will begin at 12 Noon.
Kendra Jacobs of MRN’s award-winning ‘Winged Nation’ show and Lynn Richard of the Steffes Group will be the guest auctioneers at the live auction of a wide variety of autographed memorabilia, race car panels and parts, photos, and one-of-a-kind items from all three classes of race cars that will be racing at the World Finals. Featured items will include autographed race car parts from drivers with the World of Outlaws (WoO) sprint cars, World of Outlaws (WoO) late models, and DIRT modified divisions, along with many items that have been donated by faithful donors of all three Halls of Fame.
“A great time was had by everyone in attendance last year, and the auction on Saturday afternoon, November 7, looks like it will be just as much fun,”, stated Bob Baker, executive director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum. “Last year we raised a good amount of money for all three Halls, but just as importantly, everyone left with some really great World Finals souvenirs that you can only find at these type of fund-raising auctions.”
The Z-Max Dragway pavilion is located right next to the Z-Max Dragway, and is adjacent to the camping area near the front entrance to the drag strip. For more information on the various organizations, individuals are urged to contact:
