Ultimate Bristol Experiences Auction Gives Fans Chance To Play Family Feud With Drivers, Take Part In Ride Of A Lifetime And More
What true NASCAR fan wouldn't want to play Family Feud with their favorite drivers or join them for a ride around the World's Fastest Half-Mile during pre-race introductions?
Fans now have that opportunity as the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities will host the Ultimate Bristol Experiences Auction. The online sale at www.bristol.speedwaycharities.org provides fans the opportunity to participate in those events and others during the March 19-21 race weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Beginning March 1, fans will be able to bid on the right to hang out with some of NASCAR's biggest stars, whether it be at Food City Race Night March 19, the Scotts EZ Seed Showdown March 20, or during driver introductions for the Food City 500 March 21.
Winning bidders will take part in the Wii version of Family Feud at Food City Race Night. Two fans will be teamed with Jeff Burton and Kevin and Delana Harvick while two more play the Feud with Tony Stewart and Ryan and Krissie Newman.
Bidding for all four fan player slots for Family Feud opens at $1,000. Auction winners also receive cold passes for Sunday's Food City 500.
Fans also can bid on being part of the Ride of a Lifetime with Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin or Kasey Kahne during driver introductions on Sunday. Fans with top bids hop in the bed of a Ford truck and encircle BMS with the drivers as they are introduced to the crowd. Spots for the Ride of a Lifetime open at $1,500 for each of the three drivers.
Some of NASCAR's greatest legends compete in the Scotts EZ Seed Showdown and fans have the chance to hang out on the track with the likes of Cale Yarborough, Harry Gant and others prior to the start of the race. Bidding for this package starts at $2,000.
All proceeds from the auctions will benefit the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for children's agencies in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. In the first 12 years of its existence, the Bristol Chapter of SCC has raised in excess of $5 million.
