I love being a car enthusiast, almost every single thing about it. I breathe exhaust gases, sweat 5W20 oil, and gasoline pulsates through my veins. I wouldn’t be typing this right now if I had anything but love for this passion and lifestyle. But unfortunately, every car enthusiasts realize one thing and agrees that there is one major downfall of being a car enthusiast: It can be a really expensive hobby. I can’t think of any other hobby to be involved in right now that would be more demanding on your wallet other than Boating and Aviation. Probably every car enthusiast on Earth could gladly use another couple hundred dollars or so for automotive related parts or services, at any given time, in any form. A friendly northern Virginia car club, Nu Concepts, pondered that dilemma came up with a fun, active way to solve that situation for two lucky car show attendants.
Most car shows will have a registration fee, or some even have an entry fee whether you’re in the car show or just spectating. The profit often goes towards staff, the venue/lot fee, security fee, food trucks or even the host of the event themselves. But Nu Concepts thought, why not give back?
Early on fathers day, before lunch time, Nu Concepts hosted a car show that had a $20 fee for a raffle ticket. Everyone that bought a raffle ticket was entered into a pot, all the money received from entries were to be split between two winners. The more people attended, the greater the prize would be. On this day, the prize was $120 cash for both of the winners.
These events will be happening more often, I’m sure you could use a couple hundred dollars towards your next purchase, so why not give it a shot?
