Nick Ferri, co-owner of Patterson Elite Performance and builder of engines behind 57 national NHRA Pro Stock victories, has volunteered to create a custom-tuned Mopar 6.4L Gen lll  Hemi racing engine for this year's Sunnen Engine Charity Sweepstakes, to be held at the PRI show in December. Sunnen sponsors the sweepstakes, which donates 100 percent of ticket proceeds to Victory Junction, a North Carolina children’s camp co-founded by Kyle Petty to provide medically supervised activities for kids who have serious health conditions.

Mr. Ferri says he is working on a power plant that will thrill any race team or performance enthusiast. "The work at Victory Junction deserves all the support we can give it, and we intend to create a 'must have' engine that we hope will produce record breaking ticket sales," Mr. Ferri says. His team built the engines that delivered consecutive national championships in 2014 and 2015 for NHRA Pro Stock driver Erica Enders-Stevens (pictured above). "Our goal is to bring some of that winning technology and know-how to the sweepstakes engine so the winner of the engine can have plenty of confidence in always being competitive."

Tickets for the 2016 sweepstakes are available online now. Tickets also will be sold at the Sunnen Engine Charity Sweepstakes booth (No. 852) at the show in December. The 2015 sweepstakes generated more than $59,000 for Victory Junction.
