Pocono Raceway Fan Wins $16,000
Remaining proceeds donated by Mattioli Foundation to The NASCAR Foundation
LONG POND, PA (June 19, 2014) – The Mattioli Foundation hosted a 50/50 Raffle at Pocono Raceway during the June 6-8 Pocono 400 race weekend. Anna G., a Lehigh-Valley resident, won a total of $16,052.50. The remaining proceeds benefited The NASCAR Foundation.
“My family and I parked on Sunday morning, were approached by a couple of the folks selling 50/50 Raffle tickets, and we decided to pay $20 to enter the raffle,” said Anna G. “We were on our way home, checked to see if we were the winner and, once we realized it was us, there were a bunch of screams from our car. You could not have planned a better way to end an already great weekend! My favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., won and we won 16 grand. I’m going to Disney World!”
“I had the pleasure to meet Anna in person,” said Pocono Raceway President/CEO, Brandon Igdalsky. “She was so happy and we were equally thrilled to give back to The NASCAR Foundation. With the success of this 50/50 Raffle, we will look at hosting these contests at our other major motorsports events this year.”
