The hype for the mid-engine Corvette is huge, so it’s easy to forget about the C7 Corvette. In fact, there’s a surplus of C7 Corvettes currently languishing on General Motors lots all over America, making it a good time to pick up the sports car for a bargain. But if you want a C7 Corvette and something like a Corvette Stingray, Grand Sport or Z06 is still outside of your price range (it’s sure not in ours..), then Dale Earnhardt Jr. may have a solution for you.
The famous former NASCAR racer’s charity, the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Foundation, is currently selling raffle tickets for a 2019 Corvette Z06 and cash prizes, with all proceeds from the sale benefitting charity. Tickets are $25 a piece, with the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Foundation planning to sell a total of 10,888 tickets tickets before sales close on August 31st.
The earlier you buyer your ticket, the better chance you have at winning a prize, too. If you enter between March 1st and April 15th you will be entered in a secondary draw to win a $2,000 cash price. Subsequent draws for a $1,000 cash prize and two $500 cash prizes are also on the table for those who register by May 15th and March 1st, respectively.
As for the car, it’s a 2019 Corvette Z06 with the 2LZ equipment package, 7-speed manual transmission, Carbon Fiber ground effects package and Admiral Blue Metallic exterior paint with a Jet Black leather interior. There’s also an aftermarket Billy Boat Fusion exhaust, giving the 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 engine a little more grunt.
