CONCORD, N.C. — The annual “Weekend with the 88s” has returned.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen have once again joined together to raise funds for Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both Earnhardt and Olsen identify with the No. 88 and are looking to give one lucky winner and a guest an experience of a lifetime.

By purchasing raffle tickets valued at $18.88, you will have the chance to be randomly selected as the lucky winner of the “Weekend with the 88s.”

The ultimate weekend package begins on Friday, Oct. 7, with a behind-the-scenes tour of JR Motorsports and a $200 gift certificate to spend at the JR Nation retail store. The lucky raffle winner and a guest will also receive a swag bag with NASCAR gear, two garage passes and grandstand tickets to the NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The fun continues on Saturday when the winner and a guest get a tour of Bank of America Stadium as well as a meet-and-greet with Olsen. The experience continues with two garage passes and grandstand tickets to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, along with an exclusive meet-and-greet with Earnhardt.
