The Sebring International Raceway has announced that it will conclude its drag racing season with an event on Thursday, December 6 from which 100 percent of the proceeds from the gate will be donated to the family of Katarina “Kat” Moller. Moller, 24, died of injuries sustained in an accident during an exposure to Sebring in a jet dragster last month.
The event will be the 12th in the 2018 Air and Electrical Services Sebring Drag Racing Series presented by Comfortmaker and will be sponsored by Sick Sideways and highlighted by the Marmer Construction Big Tire Quick 8 to 8, with $ 750 in cash prizes for the winner. A Power Wheels race will take place for the children.
A minimum donation of $ 5 per spectator and $ 20 per drag race registration will be collected at the door. Prior to the Power Wheels race, there will be a raffle for a custom designed Power Wheels car built and donated to the cause by Sebring resident Dean Cyr.
Cyr allocates all proceeds from raffle tickets to the Moller family and also draws a $ 100 gift certificate to Cyr Performance for powder coating services and powder coated Yeti tumblers.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and races start at 6 p.m.
