Shake-A-Leg Miami — a community-based aquatic activities center serving ablebodied individuals as well as those with physical, developmental, and economic challenges — has launched an online raffle for a chance to win an official, one-of-a-kind NASCAR racing helmet signed by 32 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers including four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson.
The helmet was donated to Shake-A-Leg Miami by supporters Kenneth Batchelor, vice president of CMC Construction, and racing enthusiast Brack Maggard, CEO of Southern Pan Services Company and co-owner of RAB Racing, to help raise funds for the organization.
The 32 signatures were collected at Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway earlier this year and include many of NASCAR’s top names, such as:
Sprint Cup Chase drivers Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, Mark Martin, Denny Hamlin, and Matt Kenseth; Sprint Cup Series drivers Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski, Paul Menard, David Reutimann, Reed Sorenson, and Nationwide Series drivers Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, Trevor Bayne, Mike Bliss, Jason Bowles, James Buescher, Kent Butler, Johnny Chapman, Kevin Conway, Brendan Gaughan, Mark Green, Kevin Hamlin, Jason Leffler, Eric McClure, Michael McDowell, Alex Tagliani, John Wes Townley, Kenny Wallace, Mike Wallace, and David Green.
“We are extremely grateful to Brack and Kenny for giving us this unique opportunity to raise funds, said Harry Horgan, CEO and co-founder of Shake-A-Leg Miami.
“The helmet is truly one-of-a-kind and we encourage people to log-on and purchase a raffle ticket. It is with your support that we can continue empowering and improving the quality of life for so many deserving individuals.”
Tickets are available currently for $25 each and can be purchased on the Shake-ALeg Miami website at < www.shakealegmiami.org >. The winner will be selected on Mar. 1 following the commencement of the 2010 NASCAR season in Daytona.
