Sebring International Raceway announced that it will conclude its drag racing season with a Thursday, December 6 event from which 100 percent of gate receipts will be donated to the family of Katarina “Kat” Moller. The 24-year-old Moller died of injuries suffered in an accident during an exhibition run at Sebring in a jet dragster last month.
The event will be the 12th of 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 at 8, with $750 in prize money going to the winner. A Power Wheels race will take place for children.
A minimum donation of $5 per spectator and $20 per drag-race entry will be collected at the gate. Prior to the Power Wheels race, a raffle will be held for a custom-designed Power Wheels car built and donated to the cause by Sebring resident Dean Cyr.
Cyr is allocating all raffle ticket proceeds to the Moller family and is also raffling a $100 gift certificate to Cyr Performance for powder coating services and powder-coated Yeti tumblers.
Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing starts at 6 p.m. The Air and Electrical Services Sebring Drag Racing Series Presented by Comfortmaker is open to all licensed drivers 18 and older.
