Sonny Leonard and the team from Sonny’s World Class Racing, Lynchburg, VA, have volunteered to build a high performance engine for the Sunnen Engine Charity Sweepstakes at PRI. This will be the 30th anniversary of the Sunnen Engine Charity Sweepstakes, with all proceeds going to the Victory Junction, a camp for children living with serious medical conditions founded by NASCAR’s Petty family. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis in December.
This year’s engine is a custom-built 727-cubic inch hemi engine valued at more than $60,000. The engine will include Sonny’s fully in-house ported hemispherical cylinder heads, Sonny’s/Brodix 5.000 B.S. block with 1.000˝ raised cam with special hi-flow water jackets, a Bryant billet crank, Carrillo steel billet rods, and much more.
Over the past 30 years Sunnen, PRI and many well-known engine builders have teamed up to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities within the racing community.
