Get a chance to ride with Brad Keselowski!Share
A few lucky fans will have the opportunity to ride along with NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski around some of the circuit’s most famed tracks this season.
Keselowsi’s Checkered Flag Foundation recently launched a raffle where fans have the opportunity to purchase a $22 raffle ticket online at www.cffracetorecoveryraffle.com for the chance for an at-speed ride-along with Brad at either Michigan International Speedway on Monday, June 20, Bristol Motor Speedway August 26-28, Richmond International Raceway Sept. 9-11 or Talladega Superspeedway Oct. 22-24. A winner and his or her guest will be chosen for each of the tracks one month prior to the race events.
Foundation President Brad Keselowski said each winner should be prepared to have a good time next to him in a two-seat Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger.
“This isn’t one of those deals where we’ll go out and take it easy- this is going to be the real deal,” Keselowski said. “My warning for those who win- you’re going to be scared, but you’re going to have the time of your life.”
Winners of the Race to Recovery raffle will have the opportunity to join wounded veterans selected to be CFF guests for a weekend of racing fun. In addition to the ride-along for two people, the winner’s package includes: two CFF suite passes to watch the Nationwide or Camping World Truck Series and Sprint Cup Series races, to include food and beverage both days; a meet and greet with Brad Keselowski; two CFF Hats, T-shirts and lanyard holders; food and beverages throughout the weekend, and more.
Ticket winners are responsible for their own transportation to/from the track and lodging. Ride-along invitations are transferrable if individuals selected do not meet the minimum height/weight requirements or are not medically cleared to participate.
Proceeds from the raffle help to defer costs for the recently announced Race to Recovery program. Working with the Veterans Administration to select candidates, CFF will identify wounded service members around the country who have worked hard to persevere beyond their injuries. The idea is to inspire and incentivize those who are working hard to get better with a three-day VIP Race Experience, capped off with a ride along in a Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger with Keselowski. Three service members/veterans along with one “crew chief” (the person who has most inspired them in their road toward recovery) per market will be invited for the three-day experience.
In addition, another 15 veterans and their guests (25-40 total individuals) will be invited to watch either the Saturday or Sunday race in the CFF Suite. VA case managers will determine the individuals who should receive suite tickets, with an emphasis on rewarding those who have met certain milestones in their treatment.
CFF hosted its first event, the Wounded Warrior Day at the Races at Brad’s home track of Michigan International Speedway, August 15, 2010, and followed that up with other similar events in Talladega, AL, Richmond, VA, Dover, DE, Detroit, MI, and more.
Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization that supports those who have sacrificed for the rest of us, to include military, veterans, first responders and their families, among others.
