Richard Petty Giving Away Custom Camaro for Charity
The King has partnered with Omaze to give a day of experiences perfect for a NASCAR fan.
After offering up Kimbal Musk's personal Tesla Model 3 a few months ago, charity contest site Omaze is once again giving away a new car as part of one of its "experiences." This time, the car in question is a Chevy Camaro with a suite of upgrades from Petty's Garage.
Legendary NASCAR driver Richard Petty has partnered with Omaze for this campaign, with a list of prizes that should appeal to racing fans. One winning contestant will be able to bring along a friend and meet up with Petty for a tour at his personal garage and museum.
The museum features cars driven throughout Petty's storied career, including the iconic 1970 Plymouth Superbird. After the tour, Petty and the winner will sit down to enjoy a North Carolina barbecue lunch. Omaze has made it clear that it will cover the winning entrant's airfare, and put them up in a four star hotel.
A day of conversation with The King would be a worthy prize on its own, but to make the deal even sweeter, Omaze has also thrown in the keys to a custom Camaro SS. From the factory, the 2018 Camaro SS is powered by a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 putting out 455 horsepower. It will be made even more potent via upgrades selected by the contest winner and installed by Petty's Garage, free of charge. Potential modifications include a paint color chosen by the recipient, HRE wheels, a custom tune, bespoke leather interior, and a glovebox autograph by Richard Petty.
Participants can pay for entries into the contest, and proceeds will benefit the Petty Family Foundation. Created by Petty's wife Lynda, the PFF is a charity that provides financial assistance to children and veterans in the Pettys' home state of North Carolina.
Those interested in participating can head over to the Omaze site, and read up on the official contest rules. There's still more than a month left to donate to the campaign. A winner will be announced July 25.
