Sunnen Products Company (St. Louis, MO) nearly doubled their previous fund-raising efforts by collecting $102,000 for their Engine Charity Sweepstakes held at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI; Aliso Viejo, CA) trade show. The previous record of $59,000 was reached in 2015. This was the 30th anniversary of the Sweepstakes and, once again, all proceeds went to Victory Junction (Randleman, NC), a camp for children living with serious medical conditions founded by NASCAR’s Petty family. The winning ticket was held by Mark Wolfe of Arlington, WA.

This year Sonny Leonard and his team from Sonny Automotive Racing (SAR; Lynchburg, VA) built a high performance engine valued at more than $66,000. The custom-built 727 cu in engine included fully in-house ported hemispherical cylinder heads, Sonny’s/Brodix 5.000 B.S. block, a Bryant billet crank, Carrillo steel billet rods and more. Over the past 30 years, Sunnen, PRI, and many well-known engine builders have teamed up to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities within the racing community.
