  • Bring a Trailer is hosting a charity auction that gives the winning bid a behind-the-scenes NASCAR experience.
  • The auction’s proceeds, including the buyer fee, are heading to the Piston Foundation, which is a charitable organization aims to provide a “skilled trade education for automotive students and to develop and establish vehicle restoration apprentices.”
  • Alongside the behind-the-scenes experience, the auction winner will also get race tickets, pit credentials, and garage passes for up to four people for the Saturday qualifying and Sunday race day of a single NASCAR race weekend of their choice between February 24, 2024, and June 2, 2024.

If you’ve ever wanted to jump behind the scenes at a NASCAR race to see how the Fox production crew relays the race to fans across the globe, and you didn’t want to actually be responsible for anything, here’s your chance.

The folks at Fox’s NASCAR team are working with the Piston Foundation and Bring a Trailer (which, like Autoweek, is part of Hearst Autos) to offer exactly that, and a little more, with the proceeds going to help fund the future of the collector car community.

If you’re the lucky one with the winning bid at the end of this seven-day auction, you’ll get: race tickets, pit credentials, and garage passes for up to four people for the Saturday qualifying and Sunday race of a NASCAR race weekend of their choice from February 24, 2024 and June 2, 2024.

You’ll also get to tour the Fox NASCAR production facility and meet Mike Joy, Kevin Harvick, and Clint Bowyer. While all of this is included with the auction’s final price, travel arrangements, and expenses are unfortunately not included, per the auction listing.

This window of races does include some legendary tracks. From February 24 to June 2, you’ll find races at Martinsville Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, and North Wilkesboro Speedway, among others.

As for the Piston Foundation, it’s a 501(c)(3) that’s trying to help fund the future of the automotive restoration industry. Piston Foundation’s mission, according to its website, “is to bring more young people into the collector car industry. By funding skilled trades programs in collector cars, we’re working to help today’s craftspeople transfer their skills to a new generation and help young technicians build rewarding careers in the trades and services of the collector car industry.”

The foundation offers scholarships and apprenticeships for would-be tradespeople interested in automotive restoration work.
