According to Craig Agan, "We can't thank Chuck Merrill of Maxim Chassis, Paul Kistler of Kistler Engines, and Kevin Miller of MOPAR enough for all of their support, in addition to the many product builders/manufacturers like Sander Engineering, Engler Machine and Tool, Winters Performance Products, KSE Racing Products, Bryant Crankshafts, Carillo Rods and Barnes Oil Systems. These companies and all the rest of the product donors continue to step up to the plate in a big way for our museum foundation. We would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to all of the raffle ticket-buyers and our own board of directors, staff and volunteers for making the tickets available to the general public. Everyone's support truly allows us to continue promoting the future of sprint car racing by preserving it's past history."
