1980 Pontiac Trans Am Raffle Presented by Mark Burch Motorsports

December 11, 2020 - April 16, 2021

We are thrilled to announce that the winner of the Team Jack Trans Am was Willie Richardson of North Platte, Nebraska! Willie and his wife, Kay, are so excited to be the new owner of the car! On Tuesday, April 27, 2021, Mark and Mari Burch handed the 1980 Pontiac Trans Am over to its new owners.

Special thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket! $110,000 was raised for childhood brain cancer through this raffle!

In less than three months my team and I brought this 1980 Pontiac Trans Am back to life with a complete ground up restoration. After hearing about Andy’s situation, we knew it was time to act. We started on July 30th, and now have a solid and safe muscle car to donate to Team Jack.
Mark Burch

Owner, Burch Motorsports & Burch & Associates

The Team Jack Foundation has given a fully-restored 1980 Pontiac Trans Am compliments of Mark Burch Motorsports and the Mark & Mari Burch family. This car was purchased by Mark Burch nine years ago as a potential father-son project. That project never came to fruition and when Andy Hoffman was diagnosed with brain cancer in July, Mark recalled a conversation he had with Team Jack’s Executive Director, Kylie Dockter a few years back. Kylie mentioned she had been searching for someone to donate a car for Team Jack to raffle or auction off. When Mark learned about Andy’s brain cancer diagnosis in July of 2020, he decide to honor Andy by gifting the foundation a car to raffle or auction to help fund child brain cancer research! Burch quickly got his team on board and began to restore the 1980 Trans Am, from top to bottom. The end result is a beautiful, safe and fun muscle car appraised at $27,500!
