Name on the Car

Several months AMP energy was running a promotion, where you could be on Dale Jr’s car at Talladega. Of course, you had to be one of 70,000 to get your name on the car and ride with Dale at last week’s race at Talladega. With all those out there in Junior Nation, I thought no way was my name going to even have a chance, but when I search…there it was. Since I want to keep my identity as private as possible as I can, I won’t point my location at to you, but let me assure you it is there.  My name was on the right side of the car in the “M” of the “Mountain Dew”.

Of course I wasn’t the only one who got their name on the car either…congrats to Race Kitten as well. Postman asked how that crash felt…I am sure it didn’t fell all that great for Dale Jr. and perhaps that would explain why I have felt like a Mack truck ran over me all week.

In case you are wondering how I was able to get the picture of my name from the website.  Here’s how I did it (I am sure there must have been an easier way, but I am not all that computer saavy)

  1. I hit the “Print Screen” button on my computer keyboard.  It is usually one of those buttons near the top that I don’t use very often.  This will copy the screen you are viewing at that time.
  2. I then opened up Powerpoint.  I then hit “Paste” under the edit menu or you can right click and choose “Paste”.  This will past the picture into a powerpoint slide.  I then cropped it to get just the portion I wanted.
  3. On the picture, I then “right clicked” chose “Save As Picture”.  A pop up menu comes up and name the picture.  Before hitting save, I selected “JPEG” under “save as type”.  This way I can upload it to my site.

All of this may sound long and confusing, but it’s the only way I knew how to get the picture for my site.
