Speedway Children's Charities Custom Cobra Replica Ends Wednesday
Only a few days remain to enter the Speedway Children’s Charities raffle for a chanceo to win a sleek, fast, custom Cobra replica while helping area children in need.
In just five days during the August Food Lion AutoFair at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the team from Tommy Pike Customs, from Greenville, S.C., turned a pile of parts into a high-performance roadster. While AutoFair spectators watched, the crew from Tommy Pike Customs worked 14 hours a day, more than 500 total man hours, to build the custom Cobra replica from scratch.
The finished car boasts a Doug Herbert 347 Stroker motor and replica 1966 black rims. European details like a double-stitched, all black leather interior and a single red pinstripe separating a matte and glossy black finish add to the car’s artistic allure. Capable of running zero to 60 in under four seconds, this custom Cobra replica is built for fun.
"It is probably the best one I have ever done," company founder Tommy Pike said of the Cobra replica. "To see some of the people who are going to benefit from this has just been great."
Ticket sales for the raffle to win the custom Cobra end Dec. 1. To purchase raffle tickets online, visit www.charlotte.speedwaycharities.org.
Carolina Christmas visitors can also get an up-close look at the Cobra replica and purchase raffle tickets through Dec. 1 at the Speedway Children’s Charities display in the North Pole area in the infield.
Tickets are $25 each or five for $100. All proceeds benefit Speedway Children’s Charities. The winner of the custom Cobra will be announced on Dec. 3.
