Chevy Racing, 'Daytona 500 Experience' Auction To Benefit Tsunami Survivors


Chevrolet is supporting a unique benefit auction on eBay to assist Indian Ocean tsunami relief efforts. The ultimate racing package, including an all-access trip for two to the 2005 DAYTONA 500(r) along with a 2005 Chevy SSR autographed by four-time driving champion Jeff Gordon, will be available for auction on eBay beginning Jan. 10. All proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross International Response Fund.

"The organizations supporting the tsunami relief efforts can never receive enough help," said Brent Dewar, general manager of Chevrolet. "The donation of the Chevy Racing DAYTONA 500 experience is one way we can support the tsunami relief efforts while offering a new vehicle and a unique racing experience for a generous individual."

The person with the highest bid will receive a 2005 Chevy SSR signed by Jeff Gordon, driver of the #24 DuPont Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

In addition to the vehicle, the Chevy Racing DAYTONA 500 experience
includes roundtrip coach airfare, lodging and tickets for two to the DAYTONA 500 on Feb. 20. The bidder and a guest will watch the DAYTONA 500, the Hershey's TAKE 5 300 on Feb. 19 and the Gatorade DUEL at DAYTONA on Feb. 17 from the Chevrolet suite located just above the start/finish line.

Each guest will have the opportunity to take a hot lap ride on the famous Daytona International Speedway, and will receive two VIP access credentials (must be 18 years of age or older) and an escorted garage and pit tour offering a chance to meet various Chevy drivers and VIPs. The DAYTONA 500 weekend also includes two invitations to the exclusive Chevy Racing DAYTONA 500 kick-off party and two tickets to Daytona USA, the ultimate motorsports attraction.

The winning bidder will also leave the DAYTONA 500 with a variety of Chevrolet motorsport merchandise.

The 10-day auction for the Chevy Racing DAYTONA 500 experience begins at 12 p.m. EST on Jan. 10 with the opening bid starting at $25,000. The recipient will be determined based on the highest bid submitted by 12 p.m. EST on Jan. 20. To place a bid or learn more about this auction item, visit www.ebay.com/gm.

The auction for the Chevrolet Racing DAYTONA 500 experience is one of several efforts by General Motors to provide support to the tsunami survivors. The GM Foundation has pledged $1 million in cash to the International Response Fund of the American Red Cross. GM announced it will match up to $1 million in contributions made by GM employees to the International Response Fund of the American Red Cross, UNICEF and CARE. Additionally, GM will provide vehicles to assist in the movement of medical equipment and supplies in areas affected by the storms.

I went to the site to see what was required to be qualified to bid on the car and race package. Filled out a form and about an hour later I got a call from a representative of the people auctioning the package. You have to give them a credit card/s so they can verify that you can meet the $25,000 starting bid price up to the max you would like to bid. I don't know about most of you but my credit card sure doesn't have a $25,000 limit thus I wouldn't be able to place the starting bid. let alone bid higher!! Oh well I don't need another one :nodno

My cards have the 50 and 75,000 limit, but I'm not stupid enough to puchase a car with one. For crying out loud at 12% or higher it would never get paid off :eek and my kids would be paying on it after I was dead :nono .

I think it's just to verify that you are 'capable' of completing the deal - not that they want you to slap the total price on plastic! I had to 'qualify' the same way when I was bidding on my SSR in June '03. I guess it keeps the riff-raff out of the way for real bidders...

If you pay the total when the bill comes in you won't pay any interest. A credit limit of $75,000 is assume... how do you get that?????
