Edwards Auctions Bike to Build Orphanage

Sometimes a driver does something that makes you uncommonly proud to be a NASCAR fan.

And what Carl Edwards is doing right now, is one of those things.

Edwards is hosting a charity auction and sweepstakes with Copart (his Nationwide Series sponsor).

And all the proceeds will go toward building an orphanage in Monterrey, Mexico.

In June, Edwards won the Nationwide Series race at Road America.  And that day, he won an XR 1200 Harley Davidson Sportster.  And now Edwards is auctioning off that Harley, along with other race memorabilia, to raise money for Back2Back Ministries, the mission group that is building the orphanage.

The auction will be held on Monday, Nov. 15 and the sweepstakes will run from now until Nov. 15. In addition to Edwards' winning Harley Davidson Sportster, he'll be auctioning off  a crew shirt, car hood and a race-worn firesuit. Fans will be able to register to bid for free and read about all the details on Copart’s Facebook fan page .

Once fans register, they are automatically entered into the sweepstakes - 500 No.60 diecast cars will be randomly awarded to registered fans.

Check out the auction items below and also Edwards' video about the project above.

Bid on to win Edwards' Harley Davidson Sportster.
