KNOXVILLE, Iowa – Maryland’s Robbie Kendall added to his lead recently in the Priority Aviation $20,000 Knoxville Nationals sponsorship contest.
The program has returned with added vigor this year, as second place will receive $10,000 and third place earns $5,000. All drivers and teams competing at either the Knoxville 360 Nationals or the Knoxville Nationals are eligible to participate.
Currently, Carson McCarl, McKenna Haase, Brian Brown, and the Black Pearl No. 101 team are trailing Kendall. Drivers and teams planning on competing at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa this August in either the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals are eligible. The drivers or teams who raise the most funds for the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum through memberships or donations will receive the previously-mentioned cash bonuses.
National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee Lance Dewease of Fayetteville, Pa., was the recipient of the $20,000 sponsorship in the program’s inaugural season two years ago. The program brought in more than $60,000 to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum that season.
All that sprint car teams and fans need to do is have their prospective members or donors visit www.SprintCarStuff.com and order a membership there, or contact the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum. If ordering online, specify a driver or race team in the “Notes” section on the final page.
The driver or team with the highest amount of donations returned to the museum before July 31 at 6 p.m. CT will receive the $20,000 sponsorship funding.
Memberships start at only $25 per year, but any donation amount will be accepted, so everyone can afford to help out their favorite team and the museum.
