Default DRAW Charity Auction at the Texas Motorplex on October 17th

As some of you know I have been involved with the Drag Racing Association of Women (let the flaming begin) for over 15 years and currently hold the position of Vice President of the Board of Trustees
For those of you that dont know what DRAW does, it is a charity foundation that give financial and emotional support to to any racer or team member that is injured while attending a sanctioned drag race. We have given almost 5 milllion dollars to over 800 families in the last 30 years.
Every year we have a large charity auction at The Texas Motorplex on Saturday night after qualifying of the AAA Texas Fall Nationals.
I hope to see some of you there!

Here is a short list of some of the major items we will be auctioning off that evening.

1. Extremely rare piece-there may not be another set like this. Set of six cards from the 60th U.S. Nationals in 2014 commemorating the six most memorable events from the 60 years of the U.S. Nationals. Not only is this the complete set of six, but each of the six is signed on the back by the racers depicted on the card. The cards are framed in a clear glass frame so you can see both sides of the cards. It’s doubtful that the winner of this item will ever see another set of these.
