KNOXVILLE, IOWA (November 26, 2014) – It is hard to believe, but next month’s National Sprint Car Museum-benefit Maxim/Rider sprint car raffle will be the tenth in the non-profit museum foundation’s history. What is equally interesting is that the previous nine winners have come from seven different states and one Canadian province. Bob Miller of Los Gatos and Bradley Myers of Brentwood are the only two winners to have come from the same state, that being California.
The list of raffle winners is as follows:
1995/96 – Gaerte/Maxim ‘410’ sprint car; Bob Miller, Los Gatos, California.
1997/98 – Wesmar/Stealth ‘410’ sprint car; Brandon Rogers, Wichita Falls, Texas.
