Racers for Tots News - 2012 Racecar Winner
By: Dave Kohler
11/5/12...Sprint Car driver Andy Priest of New Castle, PA won the Racers for Tots Rocket racecar Saturday night November 3 at the "Dirt Track" at Charlotte. The drawing for the Rocket racecar was done on stage on the front straightaway and the winning ticket was pulled by a young race fan selected from the sold out crowd.
Approximately $16,000.00 in raffle tickets were sold at Charlotte over the three day race event and the winning ticket was purchased at the table located under the main grandstands at the "Dirt Track" at Charlotte. Andy had asked the ticket seller to fill out the ticket stub for him and the last name on the ticket stub was spelled incorrectly. It was announced and spelled out over the PA at the track as Andy Pirst.
The Racers for Tots staff and Racers for Tots organizer Jimmy Steigerwald called the phone number on the winning ticket stub on three occasions and when reached said his name was Andy Priest. Priest did have the winning half of the ticket when he came to the Racers for Tots display located in vendor row outside of the grandstands.
Priest, in claiming his new Rocket racecar, stated "I have won in every division I have competed (Sprints, Big Block Modifieds, 6 cylinder Modifieds and most recently a Crate Late Model) so it looks like I may have to try to win a Super Late Model race."
Racers for Tots thanks the "Dirt Track" at Charlotte General Manager Matt Greci, Marketing and Promotions Matt Long, Bruton and Marcus Smith and the World Racing Group for allowing us to do the winning drawing at the “Dirt Track” at Charlotte for the past four years.
The 2012 season for Racers for Tots comes to a close on December 8 (4:30 to 11:00 pm) at the South Fayette Firehall in Cuddy, PA with the Racers for Tots Christmas party.
To enter the Racers for Tots Christmas party you are required to bring an unwrapped toy or make a $10.00 donation which will be used to buy additional toys for needy children at Christmas.
Racers for Tots would like to thank all who purchased raffle tickets over the racing season for the Rocket racecar, the racetracks and staffs visited throughout 2012 race season, and all of our sponsors.
