B.J. Vangsness, the co-owner of the famed Byron Dragway (Byron, Ill.), had his Christmas arrive a little early this year. At shortly after 3 PM Saturday (December 13), B.J. got a phone call from the Quarter Mile Foundation, telling him his ticket #260583 was the winner of the John Force guitar raffle.
Vangsness, who had purchased the winning ticket an hour earlier said, “I am totally surprised!! I was donating to a great cause to gather the memories about the history of the sport; however, winning was not really in the plan! But I sure am grateful, and this guitar is going to be placed in a very prominent location in our track offices!”
The acoustic guitar was given a John Force themed wrap by BSG Wraps, Fort Worth, Tex. (www.bsgwraps.com), which did the two earlier wrapped guitars the Foundation raffled at the 2014 SEMA Show. As with the SEMA guitars, the Force guitar generated tremendous interest from the exhibitors and attendees. Quarter Mile Foundation Chairman, Traci Hrudka stated, “We truly appreciated the interest in the guitar, and the participation in the raffles at Indy and Las Vegas.
“Skip Madara at BSG Wraps did a tremendous job with the graphics, and created three excellent raffle items, and we appreciate his efforts and support. We intend to offer these drag racing-themed guitars at selected events in 2015.”
The Quarter Mile Foundation will be raffling a John Force-themed acoustic guitar — VERY Limited Edition (1 of 1) at its booth at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show, December 11 – 13. The Quarter Mile Foundation is located in the Yellow Hall in Booth 2867, very near the walkway to the Crowne Plaza Hotel, and Union Station.
Tickets are priced at one dollar each, and will be available at the booth for show attendees and exhibitors during the show hours – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Thursday and Friday) and 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Saturday. The winning ticket will be drawn at 3:00 PM at the booth on Saturday afternoon. The winner DOES NOT have to be present at the drawing.
The Foundation and BSG Wraps of Fort Worth, Tex. (www.bsgwraps.com) again have collaborated to develop the John Force-themed wrap for this guitar, following the highly popular reception generated by the guitars created for the SEMA Show.
For those not attending and would like to enter, click the donate button on the website, enter the dollar amount of tickets you would like to purchase at $1.00/ticket, and make a note it is for the PRI SHOW Guitar Raffle. You only have until Tuesday night (12/10, 11:59 PM Eastern) to enter.
