We do a number of charity-based events here at Infineon Raceway, but I'm real excited about the Kasey Kahne Custom Chopper Raffle.

The guys from Orange County Choppers built this custom chopper for Kasey and it has been sitting in a warehouse in North Carolina for a few years. I caught wind of this after chatting with one of Kasey's business guys, and we put together this deal.

It's a pretty awesome chopper and the Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities will benefit from 50-percent of all raffle ticket sales. We've made it inexpensive for race fans as raffle tickets are just $9 each, which is the number on Kasey's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car.

Kasey will pick the winning raffle ticket in the Wine Country Winner's Circle on Sunday of our Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR weekend, Sunday, June 21. It should be pretty exciting. It's the first program we've put together with a specific NASCAR driver, but I hope it won't be the last. It's been a great experience.

With any luck, we can sell 5,000 raffle tickets for the chopper! If interested, be sure and call the raceway at 800-870-RACE. More than happy to sell you some tickets. Be sure and spread the word.

That's about it for now! See you soon.
