Eagle/Ott Raffle Sprint Car #9 Heads to Charlotte from Little Rock
Friday, October 26, 2012 - Following this weekend’s 25th annual Short Track Nationals in Little Rock, Arkansas, museum special events coordinator David Herrmann now heads east to the sixth annual Peak Motor Oil World of Outlaws (WoO) World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte with the National Sprint Car Museum’s raffle sprint car. The Eagle Motorsports sprinter with its state-of-the-art 410-cubic-inch Don Ott Racing Engines powerplant will be on display on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 1-2-3.
Museum executive director Bob Baker said today, “We would like to take this time to thank the fine folks at the World Racing Group and The Dirt Track at Charlotte for their continued support of our fundraising efforts. In addition, Tracey Clay at I-30 Speedway and Doug Auld at Sprint Car & Midget magazine have been annual supporters of our sprint car raffles and their cooperation is much appreciated. We would be remiss in not mentioning Bill Mann of Eagle Motorsports and Don Ott of Don Ott Racing Engines for their commitment to this specific raffle and to the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation in general. Finally, we look forward to drawing the winning ticket on December 21 of this year. Who knows? Maybe it will belong to a sprint car, dirt late model or big-block modified fan that buys a ticket next weekend at Charlotte!”
