Individual Artists of Oklahoma to Raffle Jeff Gordonís Winston Cup Racer.


Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO), a nonprofit arts organization in Downtown Oklahoma City, is now selling chances to win one of Jeff Gordonís official Winston Cup NASCAR racing cars.


This General Motors Monte Carlo donated by local entrepreneur, Bill Bonadio of Diocars, Inc., was raced at the 2002 Daytona and Talladega Winston Cup NASCAR races by Jeff Gordon. Gordon blew the original engine at Talladega (as many NASCAR fans are aware), which was replaced with a 650 horsepower iron head Hendricks motor in full working condition.

Proceeds from the raffle will benefit contemporary art and artists in Oklahoma through IAOís programs. Individual Artists of Oklahoma is committed to sustaining and encouraging emerging and established artists in all media who are intellectually and aesthetically provocative or experimental in subject matter or technique.

The IAO Gallery features works and exhibitions that display innovative and thought-provoking concepts and approaches that broaden the dialogue with the community and enhance the public's understanding of the role of contemporary art and the artist.
