One of the things I want to do before I take the last checkered flag is attend one of the driver experience deals like the Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure. Our own BethAnne went to one at Talladega last February. I have other friends who have as well. My schedule is so tight that I have trouble trying to schedule anything very far out. And, I’m cheap.
But there are opportunities for people like me to do this stuff for free. The Gillette Young Guns are running a promotion right now where they have ten grand prize trips to Lowes to do a driver’s school kind of deal with the members of the Young Guns. That would be Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman, Denny Ha,lin, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer and Kurt Busch. That would work. Read the Gillette Young Guns Timeshavers promotion here. Click on one of the Gillette Young Guns ads ads for more info.
The Catfish Show has the story on how you can bid on a ride with Dale Earnhardt Jr as Wrangler Jeans and NASCAR’s most popular driver team up to raise money for Victory Junction Gang Camp. We will have Patty Petty live ON PIT ROW Tuesday to talk about the auction, Victory Junction Camp and whatever else we can think of. Speaking of Pettys, Valli has a nice interview with Kyle Petty. Check it out.
Chances for freebies abound. You might win anything from free gas cards to a trip to the24 Hours of LeMans by entering Amoco Ultimates’ contest at CarDomain.com.
NASCAR Ranting and Raving blog has had some cool contests. Bob just gave away some autographed Harvick hats. Now he has some Amp stuff too.
I actually missed a chance last weekend to drive a cup car at Toledo Speedway. There was a group there that had a very reasonably priced deal. That would have been cool. But I found out too late. So much for being connected.
