Our friends at Lemons of Love are giving away a full Mazda MX-5 Cup car built by Long Road Racing. If you aren’t familiar with the Lemons of Love organization, it’s a great non-profit foundation that delivers care packages to those fighting cancer. They are also very involved in our motorsports world and are now raffling off a full Mazda MX-5 Cup car. Tickets are just $100 a piece. Claim yours right here.

That’s a charity we really get excited about.

Jill really is an amazing person. Her reaction to learning that she had stage IV colon cancer? "what can I do to help others". This was when she started Lemons Of Love, and it's a fantastic charity that really does bring a little joy into the lives of those undergoing cancer treatment. If you'd like to learn a little more about this great cause--- read this:

and heck---- who doesn't want to win a fully-prepped MX-5 Cup car for only $100? You could race wheel to wheel, or just use it as the world's best (and safest) track-day car! Sounds like a winner to me!

Hey, since I am the first one to donate, do I get a cookie or something?

Although FMV for the MX-5 Cup car would be WAY over challenge budget---- I'm sure you could bring it to the challenge and run in the exhibition class. It would be cool to see it out there!

By the way--- Sarah Montgomery has been running under the Lemons of Love banner. Her story is posted here, and it's worth watching:

Bumping this for a new day---- this is limited to 2,500 tickets, so you have a much better chance at winning this new MX-5 Cup car than you do---- getting struck by lightning, winning the lottery, or getting that cute girl who works at the ice cream joint to go on a date with you!

Seriously, it's a great cause, a killer car, and the chances are pretty darn reasonable. Do ettt!

They've sold over 65 tickets so far. If you want a chance to win-- enter soon. If you win, taxes will be just under $17K. Thats a heck of a deal on a new MX-5 Cup car that has a real-world cost of $60K.

Enter now....enter often!

Having been struck by lightning at the age of 18 and obviously having dealt with cancer, I'm a shoe in to win right

I think Keith and his crew need a global cup car to stuff a V8 into, I think that'd make for one of the greatest and safest drivers cars for HPDE in the world.

Not familiar with that raffle Robbie---- the one we are discussing is for the Lemons of Love Charity--- helping chemo patients. It's a great cause, with honest / good people running it. MAZDA is a big supporter, and has supplied the car for the raffle.

At last count---87 tickets had been bought.....and counting!
