Mac Tools plans to auction a driver-autographed toolbox from the starting line of the 51st annual Mac Tools US Nationals, the most prestigious NHRA event on the drag racing circuit. On Sept. 29, the Mac Tools toolbox will be up for bid on the online auction site Ebay for 10 days with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the American Red Cross to assist in the hurricane relief efforts.

The Mac Tools tool box is autographed by all 64 drivers of the four professional classes (Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, Pro Stock Bike) that qualified for the race which took place Aug. 31-Sept. 5, 2005. Drivers who autographed the box include John Force, Brandon Bernstein, Larry Dixon and Doug Kalitta.

“Auctioning the Mac Tools US Nationals box for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts is one of the many things Mac Tools is doing to help those who lost everything in this terrible natural disaster," said Roger Spee, director of marketing. "We know that any NHRA race fan will jump at the chance to own this piece of US Nationals memorabilia, so why not give them the opportunity to collect this item and make a solid contribution to rebuilding lives.”

The link for the auction site will be posted on www.mactools.com.

The red Mac Tools Toolbox includes a top and bottom chest (Product Number MB8800 & MB8810) containing 13 drawers for storage and providing more than 27,000 cubic inches of space.
