Bradley Myers of California Wins Eagle/Ott '410' Raffle Sprint Car
Friday, December 21, 2012 - Bradley Myers of Brentwood, California, is the lucky grand prize winner of the National Sprint Car Museum's sprint car raffle. The winning raffle ticket-buyer will receive a state-of-the-art Eagle Motorsports chassis with a new Don Ott Racing Engines-built 410-cubic-inch racing engine. When first contacted by phone by museum special events coordinator David Herrmann and told that museum board member Steve Van Wyk drew his ticket in the non-profit foundation’s ninth biennial sprint car raffle, Myers exclaimed, “Are you kidding me? Am I on camera?!”
When asked, Myers stated that he bought two tickets while at a World of Outlaws (WoO) sprint car race at Antioch Speedway in Antioch, California, in September of 2011.
According to museum executive director Bob Baker, "We can't thank Bill Mann of Eagle Motorsports and Don Ott of Don Ott Racing Engines enough for all of their support on this 18-month project. These companies and all the rest of the product donors continue to step up to the plate in a big way for our 501(c)(3) non-profit museum foundation. We would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to all of the raffle ticket-buyers and museum staff, volunteers, track promoters, series officials and trade show coordinators for making the tickets available to the public. Everyone's support truly allows us to continue promoting the future of sprint car racing by preserving its past history."
