LAS VEGAS (Oct. 27) -- Pro Stock Motorcycle racer Karen Stoffer is offering two unique drag racing-themed quilts in a special eBay auction that will benefit the Drag Racing Association of Women (DRAW). The two auctions are live on eBay and will continue through Nov. 6.

"The ladies of DRAW are awesome and they deserve all of our love and support," Stoffer said. "They always do quilts for their live auctions and that gave my mother (MaryAnne Lindstrand) the idea to do one of all the Pro Stock Motorcycle racers. The response was so overwhelming we decided to do two.

"The other idea was to offer them online for all the people that can't always make it to the events, so we have them up on eBay and we're hoping they raise a bunch of money."

The "Champion's quilt" features Dave Schultz, John Myers, Matt Hines, Angelle, Geno Scali, Andrew Hines, Matt Smith, Eddie Krawiec, Hector Arana, and on the back, Elmer Trett, a hand-signed shirt he was wearing the day he passed away. It can be accessed via the following link:

The shirts on the quilts were collected by Debbie Johnson, co-owner of Stoffer's GEICO Powersports Suzuki. The quilts were sewn by Lindstrand and the ladies of Patchwerks Quilting. Proceeds will be donated to DRAW on Nov. 14 at the season-ending race in Pomona, Calif.

DRAW's sole mission is providing financial and emotional support to qualified individuals involved in a drag racing accident at a track.

Stoffer went on to extend special thanks to all of the 2010 sponsors and supporters.
