As we all know NASCAR is always striving to involve its fans in some way or another. Just look at this past weekend at The Sprint Unlimited. Now NASCAR and Walmart want to give fans another opportunity to get involved. Fans will get a chance to customize the “Fan Driven 400” to be held at Pocono Raceway on June 9, 2013! This includes naming the race, voting on a concession stand item called a pierogie, and the official pace car design for the race. That’s sounds awesome, but how do I get involved in the “Fan Driven 400”?. Just a reminder this is for the Pocono race to be held on June 9, 2013. Personal note–this should be easy for me to remember since it is my wedding anniversary.
Here is how you, the fan, can become part of the action!
- Race Name Submission: Fans can submit a name for the race through February 25 at walmarurl.com/FanDriven. When submitting a name for the race be creative!
- Race Name Voting: Beginning March 11 until April 8, fans can return to the website and vote on the three submissions. Just think, your submission could be one of the three!
- Concession Item: Fans can vote on three different types of pierogies from April 8 until May 6.
- Pace Car Design: Yes, you as fans will get to choose from three Pace Car designs. This voting takes place from May 6 until May 27.
That’s folks! That is how you can help customize the “Fan Driven 400”! This sounds like a great promotion! This is just another example of why I love NASCAR.
Thanks to Walmart there are making attending the race even more affordable for everyone. Walmart is offering 16,000 Concourse Grandstand tickets at a discounted price of $25!. Did you hear that? $25 dollars! Tickets can be purchased online at Walmart.com/NASCAR or through Pocono Raceway at poconoway.com.
If you can’t make it to Pocono, you can still have an opportunity to save some of your hard-earned dollars and attend a NASCAR race. Walmart is offering the Walmart Family Track Pack for $99 online at Walmart.com/NASCAR. This means you get 4 tickets, 4 sodas and 4 hotdogs! That means my family of four can go to a race and have a great time. With this 4-pack, you can attend races at Las Vegas, Fontana, Darlington, Dover, and many others. This also includes the NASCAR Sprint All-Star race and the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona in July and even the season ending race at Homestead! Who wouldn’t want to take advantage of this money saving opportunity to attend a race with your family?
If you are like me, you might forget when and where to vote…don’t worry, I will be back around to remind everyone! In the meantime get your thinking caps and submit your name suggestion for the “Fan Driven 400”! and become part of NASCAR history at walmarturl.com/FanDriven!
