Guitar Raffle!!

As at the SEMA Show last month, the Foundation will again be raffling an acoustic guitar, this time with a John Force Racing themed wrap, which has yet to be finalized.  The tickets for the guitar are priced at $1.00 each, with the drawing for the winner held at 3:00 PM on Saturday, December 13 at the booth.  The winner of the drawing does not have to be present to claim the prize.

Guitar Raffle Big Hit at 2014 SEMA Show

The Foundation raffled off two acoustic guitars which featured graphics wraps from BSG Wraps, Fort Worth, Tex. (www.bsgwraps.com), at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas on November 4-7, 2014. Ticket sales were brisk for the two guitars, one featuring a collage of some of drag racing’s early personalities (Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins, Linda Vaughn, Don Garlits, Mickey Thompson, etc.), and the other a Don Pruhomme collage. Making the interest strong was the fact the wrap covering the guitars would not be repeated — VERY limited editions.

The two winners were drawn at the Foundation’s booth on Friday afternoon. The winner of the Prudhomme guitar was Adam Smith, owner of Black Plate Restorations, Acton, Calif., and the winner of the mixed collage guitar was Marvin Benoit, President of Quick Fuel Technology, Bowling Green, Ky.

The Foundation appreciates the enthusiastic support received at the SEMA Show. We are looking forward to the Performance Racing Industry Show, December 11-13 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

There will be another pair of guitars raffled at the Foundation’s PRI Show at booth 2867 in the Yellow Hall. We look forward to seeing you there!

Quarter Mile Foundation announces 2012 P.R.I. Show presence

The Quarter Mile Foundation announces it will once again have a strong presence at the 25th Annual Performance Racing Industry Show, November 29, 30 and December 1, 2012 in Orlando, Fla.

The Foundation’s booth is located in the Orange County Convention Center’s South Hall area, BOOTH NUMBER 4521.

Foundation chairman Traci Hrudka commented, “We are very pleased with the location of this year’s display.  We had several excellent options from which to select, and being able to work with the PRI Show staff, and Jeff Swoboda in particular, we were able to secure this high-traffic location.

“We feel that we will be able to impact a large portion of the attendees, since the booth location is surrounded by a number of high profile companies.  This should provide us with the opportunity to share our goals and accomplishments with show attendees and the other exhibitors.”

The Foundation is in the process of finalizing guest appearances during the Show hours, and that information will be released at a later date.
