It’s not really rare for NASCAR drivers and team owners to put cars, be they personal cars or raced Sprint Cup machines, up for auction with Barrett-Jackson to raise money for a favorite charity. But three-time champion Tony Stewart is donating transportation of a different kind -- the scooter he got around on while recovering from his sprint car wreck in August 2013.

“We thought long and hard about what we should do with the scooter when we finished with it,” Stewart said.

The scooter will hit the auction block at Barrett-Jackson in Palm Beach, Fla., sometime between April 11 and 13. The scooter will be part of a package that will also include a race-worn firesuit autographed by Stewart, a trip for two to the July 5 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation.

“After working with Darrell Gwynn and his foundation for so many years, I know there are a lot of people who aren’t as fortunate, and that a scooter is a way of life,” Stewart said. “The scooter I used after my accident is top of the line, and it will serve someone very well. I want it to go to a deserving person, but I also want it to help others. Auctioning it off at Barrett-Jackson, where all the money will go to the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, allows Darrell and his group to serve its mission by providing support for people living with paralysis.”

In addition to the sale price of the scooter package, Stewart also plans to match the winning bid, up to $50,000.

“I’m putting my money where my mouth is too by personally matching the first $50,000 bid on the scooter and giving it to the Darrell Gwynn Foundation,” Stewart said. “The scooter and the money will be well served by Darrell and his team, who have donated wheelchairs to hundreds of individuals through its National Wheelchair Donation Program. I’m impressed with everything Darrell has done for others and I’m very proud to contribute to his foundation’s mission.”
