SCC to Host Online Charity Auction in Advance of Toyota/Save Mart 350 Weekend
For the first time at Sonoma Raceway, race fans can lock-in incredible race-day experiences and NASCAR collectibles in advance of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 race weekend with the Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) online charity auction.
The auction, which launches on Monday, June 8, will feature nearly 30 items, including "Ride of a Lifetime" experiences with top NASCAR drivers, Jeff Gordon collectibles and unique race-weekend packages. The online auction will be available at www.sccauctions.com from June 8 at 9 a.m. to June 22 at noon (PACIFIC). The new format opens the auction to all race fans, including those who still need to purchase tickets for race weekend.
The highlight of the auction is 16 Ride of a Lifetime experiences, which offer fans a chance to ride with their favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver around the road course in the back of a Toyota Tundra during pre-race ceremonies.
