Sonny Leonard and the team from Sonny’s World Class Racing, Lynchburg, Virginia, have volunteered to build a high-performance engine for the Sunnen Engine Charity Sweepstakes.

This drawing 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. Officials will draw the winning ticket at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show in Indianapolis, December 6–8.

This year’s engine is a custom-built 727-cubic inch Hemi engine valued at more than $60,000. The engine can be street-driven on 93 octane fuel, producing 1310 HP, naturally aspirated. The engine will also 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.
