At 9AM this morning, bidding will commence in the 3rd annual Lead Truck Auction. Don’t show up fashionably late to the bidding this year as we’ve got only 36 hours (bidding closes at 9pm wednesday) to divvy up the rides because the heat selection was held later than it has been in recent years. For the uninitiated, bidders bid on the chance to ride in the lead truck for a specific heat. Winners get to ride with the head judge and other race officials with a view of at least the lead buggy around the entire course.
Last year’s auction was a huge success and it allowed us to help sweepstakes rent not one, but two jumbotrons so that spectators can really watch the entire race from the most popular spots on the course. We saw this coming, but once you have two jumbotrons, it doesn’t sound like any fun to go back to one (or god forbid, zero). We alumni reap the majority of the benefits of these jumobtrons so if we want them to stick around we’ve got to pitch in. Bid on a lead truck ride and you get to do your part for the big screens and take a fun ride to boot.
Rides are transferable, so you can give them as gifts if you won’t be in town. Refunds are available in the event of races being rained out. Plenty of other details at:
