To say that the new mid-engine Corvette is Torch Red-hot right now would be an understatement. The new car has demanded the attention of enthusiasts, competitors, and also those who wish to harness the car’s celebrity status to bring attention to their causes and corporation. Many times, not only does the entity benefit, but also those wishing they had one of these new supercars in their garage.
The Knoxville, Iowa-based National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is one such entity that has made the initial commitment to secure a C8 to be given to one lucky donor. The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is the only museum in the world solely dedicated to sprint car racing, and last year awarded a C7 Z06. While this year’s C8 doesn’t have the Z06’s horsepower, it easily makes up for it in style points and mid-engine goodness. It also includes the super-performing Z51 package to make the most of the engine’s migration.
The new 2020 Corvette Stingray’s LT2 engine brings 495 horsepower and a dual-clutch, eight-speed transmission to the table. The additional Z51 package adds to it with Z51-specific front splitter and rear spoiler, Michelin PS4 tires, FE3 suspension, larger front, and rear brakes, electronic, limited-slip differential, front brake cooling inlets, and a performance exhaust that allows all 495 of those horses breathe.
There has been so much in the news about the new C8 Corvette, up to and including it winning the MotorTrend Car of the Year Award, but all the praise and hype pales in comparison to putting one of these babies in your garage. The 2020 Z51 Corvette Stingray drawing is a fundraiser to support the continued operation of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum and by donating to this 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, your name will go into the drawing for a chance to win the world’s newest, mid-engine supercar.
Donation levels range from $25 through $1,000 to allow participation at any level and tickets can be purchased until August 15, 2020, at 9 pm (CDT). The drawing will be held on August 15, 2020, at 10 pm (CDT). Participants can purchase as many tickets as they’d like, as often as they want. The Sweepstakes is open to anyone 18 years or older. Citizens and residents of the U.S. and any other country in which sweepstakes are legal may enter this sweepstake. Of course, all federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.
The winner does not have to be present to win and will be notified on August 15, 2020, by phone and/or email, based on the contact information provided at the time of ticket purchase. The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum will also post the winner’s name and ticket number on their website after the winning ticket is drawn. Those with the eyesight for fine print can go to the Sweepstake’s Rules page and see the entire listing of rules and regulations.
Good luck to all who participate and may the benefits of this C8 Corvette Sweepstakes be far-reaching for both its new owner and the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.
