Dodge NHRA Nationals Presented by Pennzoil held the latest Pennzoil Charity Challenge where local celebrities, athletes and media personalities competed to raise money for charities of their choice.
Each armed with a Dodge Challenger and a worthy mission, some of the drivers had their initiation into the drag racing world. A purse of $30,000 was divided among competitors based on their rank.
American racing legend Joe Amato used his experience behind the wheel to snatch the win on behalf of Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
Other competitors for this challenge included:
Jeff Allen driving for Project 150
Ashley Corzine driving for Make-A-Wish (NW Ohio Chapter)
Tommy Pike driving for B.R.A.K.E.S.
Peter Guzman driving for the Las Vegas, Nevada, Latin Chamber of Commerce
Chris Maathuis driving for The Animal Foundation
