Georgia Lottery joins Atlanta Motorama as sponsor of Million-Dollar Salon
Enthusiasts who want to see incredible cars just hit the jackpot; the Georgia Lottery is teaming up with Atlanta Motor Speedway to display extremely rare and valuable cars inside the Georgia Lottery Million-Dollar Salon during Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama.
In addition, the Georgia Lottery is partnering with the Speedway to be the presenting sponsor of Atlanta Motorama, joining title sponsor Summit Racing Equipment to make Motorama the Southeast's biggest celebration of anything with a motor.
At a show with more than 1,000 cars to see, the Georgia Lottery Million-Dollar Salon stands out as an impressive showcase of must-see vehicles. During Georgia's Motoring Festival, the Georgia Lottery Million-Dollar Salon takes over the Speedway's Marcy Scott Media Center April 27-28 and transforms it into a temporary home for vehicles seldom seen in the Southeast.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Atlanta Motor Speedway for this exciting event," Georgia Lottery Corp. President and CEO Gretchen Corbin said. "This partnership gives us a chance to increase brand awareness, connect with our players, and ultimately generate dollars for education, as all Georgia Lottery profits benefit the HOPE scholarship and grant, including the Zell Miller Scholarship, as well as lottery-funded Pre-K."
This year, the Georgia Lottery Million-Dollar Salon is filled with cars that have rocketed across the salt flats of Bonneville, pursuing high speeds in excess of 200 mph, and in some cases, even 300 mph.
Among the highlights in the Georgia Lottery Million-Dollar Salon this year is George Poteet's 1969 Plymouth Barracuda, which has reached a staggering 317 mph at Bonneville. Joining the Barracuda in the Salon is Mike and Libby Welch's Bonneville Streamliner, a 1,800 horsepower, bullet-shaped machine that will aim to eclipse 400 mph when it competes in Bonneville later this year.
Other vehicles on display in the Salon include a Blown Gas Rear Engine Modified Roadster that Victoria Hope piloted beyond 200 mph at Bonneville at just 16 years of age, the youngest ever to do so. It's joined by a 1932 Ford Roadster owned by Bob Gratton, a 1955 Chevrolet and a 1951 Studebaker Bullet Nose Starlite Coupe owned by Bob Johnson, and a P&C Engineering Special owned by Maynard Parker and Tommy Cox.
