That's right, prize money. Dollars. In your pocket. eBay Motors be makin' it rain for all y'all.

If you win the Challenge, eBay Motors will give you a hundred bones. But that's the small-fry prize. There will be a random drawing for the big bucks at the Challenge. Any team in attendance is eligible to win a $2012 eBay Motors merchandise credit. Scrounge up some couch change and you've got the entire build budget for a car for next year.

Srsly.

So, how's that build coming?

Don't forget to sign up, fill out your forms, pay your fees and so on. Go here: http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/events/2012challenge/

Holy crap! Nice to see some dollaz for the winners! To clarify, is the "drawing" like a one-per-car-entered kind of thing, or is it for everybody in attendance? The way you worded it above sounds like everybody present can enter.

Unfortunately, I hadn't planned on coming this year...tough to justify coming from the West Coast. Hopefully I'll be returning next year to keep my odd-years theme going.

Now I need to go. I've had great luck with prize drawings (2 slot car tracks and a BMW Motoraports jacket) in the past.

I just checked with the decision-makers. It's one entry per team. Will remove any ambiguity from original post.
