The Kasey Kahne Custom Chopper Raffle officially kicked off on Friday during a news conference at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, featuring Kahne and Steve Page, president and general manager of Infineon Raceway.
The racy red-and-white chopper, which was built for Kahne by the world-famous Orange County Choppers, was also unveiled.
"I am excited to team up with Infineon Raceway to raffle off this cool chopper to raise money for the Kasey Kahne Foundation and Speedway Children's Charities," Kahne said. "Sunoco had this bike built by the guys at Orange County Choppers and it turned out great. The lucky fan who wins the bike is going to be cruising around on one of the best looking choppers around."
Race fans can purchase raffle tickets for $9 each, the number on Kahne's Dodge, by calling 1-800-870-RACE. Kahne will pull the winning raffle ticket in the Wine Country Winner's Circle at Infineon on Sunday, June 21 of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 weekend.
"This is a terrific promotion and we're very grateful to Kasey for the opportunity to work together and benefit two great causes," Page said. "We look forward to handing this beautiful bike over to one of our fans in June."
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Kasey Kahne Foundation, while Speedway Children's Charities proceeds will be distributed to qualified youth groups in Sonoma County. The Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities has distributed more than $3 million to youth groups in Sonoma County since 2002.
