Fans interested in unique NASCAR items and those hard-to-find pieces must be part of the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities Racing Memorabilia Auction at BMS on Aug. 23 for those special one-of-a-kind collectables.

Several of racing’s biggest names have donated items to be auctioned at the event including Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Danica Patrick, Richard Petty and Darrell Waltrip.

From autographed apparel and die-cast to helmets and quarter panels, the SCC Racing Memorabilia Auction features many items that would be the perfect show piece in any fan’s collection.

One item which is sure to bring a lot of attention is a racing helmet signed by several racing greats including Dale Earnhardt Sr., Dale Jarrett, Darrell Waltrip and Rusty Wallace.

The boxing gloves used by Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle, Kenseth and Patrick during last March’s Food City Race Night Wii Boxing competition are up for grabs during the event. Other items at the auction include suite seat packages and Ride of a Lifetime passes, the latter allows the winner to ride with a Cup Series competitor during Driver Intros prior to the IRWIN Tools Night Race.

The auction will be held on the third floor of the Bruton Smith Building at BMS. A preview of the auction items begins at 5 p.m. with bidding starting at 6 p.m.
