FOX NASCAR Race Weekend Experience for Auction

The latest Piston Foundation charity auction ended earlier this week featuring a one-of-a-kind experience you couldn’t buy anywhere else. Unlike in prior auctions where a shiny vintage car was the prize, here, BaT members could bid to win a FOX NASCAR Race Weekend Experience.

Bidders, Start Your Engines!

The winning bidder was Bring a Trailer user @MBClassik with a final bid of $20,500. They and three guests of their choosing will receive a behind-the-scenes look at FOX’s TV compound and broadcast booth, along with a garage tour on the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series race weekend of the winner’s choice between February 24 and June 2.

They will also have the opportunity to meet FOX Sports broadcasting legend Mike Joy, FOX analysts Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick, FOX pit reporters, and FOX NASCAR production team members. Included in the package are four race tickets, pit credentials and garage passes for qualifying and race days of the winner’s chosen weekend.

Joy has been a motorsport announcer for almost 55 years, contributing to live NASCAR radio and television broadcasts since the late 1970s. This will be his 24th consecutive season as FOX’s lead broadcaster.

“As a car collector, I’m excited to help create an opportunity that will help educate the next generation of restorers,” said Joy. “As a broadcaster, I’m excited to show fans what we do and how our massive production all comes together. So, bid often for a great time and a worthy cause!”

“What a great opportunity for a race fan to see what goes on behind the scenes at a NASCAR race,” said Jeff Mason, President and COO of The Piston Foundation. “You cannot buy this experience of meeting NASCAR champions and seeing the challenges it takes to produce a live TV show. Plus, with all the proceeds going to support skilled-trade technicians, it can only be a win-win situation.”

Piston Partnerships In Top Gear

The auction collaboration with FOX NASCAR comes on the heels of Piston and BaT’s official partnership announcement. As the first auction under this new partnership, there’s a lot to be excited about. This new level of teamwork means there will be more plans for auctions and events throughout the year and more effective ways for both organizations to give back to their favorite car community. Each successful charity auction sees 100% of all proceeds, including BaT’s buyer’s fee, go towards funding the Piston scholarship and apprenticeship programs.

Thanks to FOX Sports for donating this one-of-a-kind experience. Special thanks to Mike Joy who made this auction possible. Thanks to Clint Bowyer, Kevin Harvick, the FOX NASCAR broadcast team, NASCAR, Nigel Kinrade Photography, and Bring a Trailer for all their support.
