Adding to the excitement leading up to the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) debut at the all-new GALOT Motorsports Park for Dragstock XIII, Pat Musi Racing Engines has announced an incredible contest to be held at the event.
Musi will be raffling off one of his complete 565 cubic inch carbureted engines specially designed for bracket racers. The grand prize winner will also receive a certificate good for $500 worth of Lucas Oil products, and the winners of the second and third place drawings will each receive $500 cash.
To purchase raffle tickets, contact Mason Harris at (804) 641-8999. Cash, check, or money order will be accepted. Tickets will also be available at the Musi Racing trailer beginning Thursday, September 8 during the Thursday Thunder test session at GALOT Motorsports Park, and sales will continue until the conclusion of the last round of qualifying on Saturday. Tickets are $100 each and there is no limit on how many can be purchased by each individual. As long as the minimum of 165 tickets have been sold, the drawing will be held and winners will be announced before the start of eliminations on Saturday, September 10. If the minimum is not met, the raffle will continue through the PDRA Sunshine State Shootout in Bradenton, Florida. If the minimum still is not met by the start of eliminations at the PDRA World Finals at Virginia Motorsports Park on October 22, all ticket purchases will be fully refunded.
