Racing can be ridiculously expensive, particularly if you’re doing it as a hobby and can’t dedicate the hours necessary to procure sufficient sponsorship to cover the costs of building a craft, purchasing riding gear, traveling from race to race, and of course, entry fees. And if you think being the racer is expensive, try hosting a race! There’s permits, staffing, renting the venue and of course, the prizes for the racers who compete. Racing ain’t cheap from any angle, so that’s why we completely understand what the guys at Team Lugs Racing are doing:

Recently announced on the Team Lugs Facebook page, the Midwest PWC racing team is hosting a “Race Raffle” to raise funds for cash prizes for the Nebraska Championship series. But the big “get” is that the winner of this raffle will walk home with a brand new ’16 Sea-Doo Spark outfitted with an impressive list of go-fast goodies including a Pro-Series Sponson kit from RIVA Racing, a new premium seat cover from Hydro-Turf and a cool E-85 performance tune from V-Tech Tuned. To learn how you can score this Spark, read the full press release:

In order to promote the Nebraska Championship races and raise funds for its cash prizes, Team Lugs Racing is conducting a Race Raffle. “Like” Team Lugs Facebook Page for raffle and race updates.

The raffle is for a 2016 Sea-Doo Spark Personal Watercraft. This is not your normal factory Sea-doo. Thank you to our sponsors for their generous donations in performance parts. It’s no surprise Nebraskans like their corn, VTECHTUNED.COM has provided us with a E-85 performance tune increasing both performance (+60 hp) and acceleration. To help handle the increased performance Riva Racing donated a pro-series sponson kit. To finish off the Spark, Hydro-turf helped out with a brand new premium seat cover.

Entry in to the raffle is available only to persons over the age of 19. You may be asked at any stage to provide Team Lugs with proof of age and /or identity.

The Spark is on display at Leisure Life Sports located at 9004 s.145th, Omaha, NE 68138. We will also bring the Spark to both of the Kansas Nautiwater racing events for display and on-site ticket sales.

The price for a ticket is $20. We will offer a couple of multiple ticket discounts. Buy 3 tickets for $50 which saves you $10 or buy 5 tickets and get one free. Tickets are only sold online thru this website or in person by Team Lugs personnel. All in person tickets will be entered into Raffle Creator database. If you don’t feel comfortable entering your information online then contact Team Lugs for cash purchases. Profits from this raffle will be donated to a charity chosen by Team Lugs for the purpose of community betterment.  

The drawing and winner announcement will be held on July 9th at 1pm at The Nebraska Championship announcer podium. The winner will also be announced on Team Lugs Facebook Page. The winner does not have to be present to win but must arrange their own transport if they resided outside of the Omaha area. The Winner is responsible for the payment of all tax, title fees, license fees, insurance requirements and other charges as may be required under any law, ordinance, statute, regulation or otherwise.  The decision is final with respect to all matters relating to awarding of the prize and shall not be subject to review or appeal by any entrant or by any third party. TEAM LUGS reserves the right, at any time, to cancel, modify or suspend the Raffle if, in its sole judgment, the Raffle is not capable of being conducted as specified.
