giving it away: no. 39 hats autographed by ryan newman

Ryan Newman won’t be in the No. 39 for much longer, which makes this contest even better. Thanks to Wheat Thins I’m giving away 5 (five) #39 hats that have been autographed by Ryan himself.

giving it away: ‘at any price’ movie poster, ’cause it’s about racing, sort of

“At Any Price” is a new film starring Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham. I’m telling you about it because Zac Efron’s character is a young man who dreams of racing in the big leagues of NASCAR one day, but that’s not what the movie really, really about.

getting to know you: 2011 ‘fabulous’ reader survey & goo gone giveaway

It’s that time again! Time to take the 2011 ‘Fabulous’ Reader Survey! All of this information is important to help me grow this blog and to help prove to potential sponsors that there’s value in partnering with me.

So if you’re like me and enjoy filling out surveys, have at it! It should be fun and easy peasy, I wouldn’t expect it to take longer than 5 minutes to complete.

AND to sweeten the pot this year there’s a giveaway attached to the survey. The truly awesome people at Goo Gone have put together a super-duper prize package for one lucky reader that completes the survey.

Goo Gone Prize Package image

The prize package (pictured above) includes the following:

(1) Goo Gone branded cargo box
(1) 8 oz bottle of Goo Gone
(1) 12 oz bottle of the Goo Gone Spray Gel
(1) 16 oz bottle of the Goo Gone Pro-Power Pump Spray
(1) 14 oz bottle of Goo Gone Painter’s Pal
(1) 8 oz bottle of Goo Gone Coffee Maker Cleaner
(1) Goo Gone Mess-Free Pen

Being a Goo Gone GooRu, I already own the Goo Gone Spray Gel so I can attest to it’s power and super usefulness–makes it ridiculously easy to get pesky sticker goo off my car windshield (The end result of affixing parking stickers to my car for race weekends at the track). And the rest of the products included are equally as helpful.

You can only fill out the survey once, so of course, only one entry per person is allowed. You don’t have to enter the contest if you don’t want to, you’ll have the ability to opt out at the end of the survey.

Thanks so much to Goo Gone for the awesome prize and to YOU the reader for reading this blog! Thank you in advance for the feedback!

2011 hottest driver tournament: round one

Hottest Driver LogoWho is the hottest, cutest, most-handsome driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series? I know who I think is the hottest, most-adorable driver in the series but if I just tell you what I think it’s boring and the fun only lasts for a few hours, or a day, tops. So instead I thought it would be way more fun if everyone voted!

I’ve randomly seeded 38 drivers into a single-elimination tournament. There will be six rounds of action before we crown a winner and each round will last at least one week. The second round will go on for two weeks because there are so many match-ups I want to make sure there’s enough time to get as many votes in as possible. You can vote as many times as you want and I strongly encourage you to do so every day. And as the rounds wind down be on the lookout for the opportunity to win a prize!

giving it away: talladega pepsi throwback prize pack

Talladega Pepsi Throwback Contest - Jeff GordonI have a new contest to share with you and this time you have the opportunity to win an actual piece of a NASCAR race. For the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway back on April 26th of this year Jeff Gordon’s No. 24 DuPont/Pepsi Throwback Challenger Chevrolet sported Darrell Waltrip’s championship winning 1983 yellow Pepsi Challenger paint scheme. The retro paint scheme celebrated Pepsi Throwback, limited time only products inspired by the ’60s and ’70s that are sweetened with natural sugar in a retro-look package.

Jeff didn’t win the race, he got caught up in one of the infamous Talladega “big one” crashes, but in this particular instance that’s sort of a good thing for you because I get to giveaway to one lucky Fast and Fabulous reader actual pieces of Jeff’s car from that very race. This is the part where you say “ooooooh!”

I suggest checking out the Pepsi Throwback site for very cool retro wallpapers, photos and videos to “Throwback” your blog or Twitter page.

The Talladega Pepsi Throwback prize package includes the following:

  • Lug nut from the tires of the #24 car used during the race
  • Throwback t-shirt featuring both Darrell Waltrip’s #11 Pepsi Challenger and Jeff Gordon’s #24 Pepsi Challenger
  • 2′x 2′ framed metal pieces of Jeff Gordon’s #24 DuPont/Pepsi Throwback Challenger, which crashed in spectacular fashion on Lap 7 of the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway on April 26th.
  • Pepsi Throwback drinks

giving it away: guns n’ roses chinese democracy prize pack

Guns N Roses - Chinese DemocracyLet’s talk about Guns N’ Roses. First, can you believe that Axl Rose is 46?? When did that happen?

When Use Your Illusion I and II came out I was in junior high school and I was falling in love with rock music. I think I’ve seen the video for “November Rain” at least ten thousand times. For a time I was convinced that I was going to get married in a wedding dress like the one Stephanie Seymour wore in the video, luckily I have ditched that I idea. I also had a very serious crush on bassist Duff McKagan. So it is really cool that I’ve been given the opportunity to give away a GNR prize pack in honor of the highly anticipated release of Chinese Democracy. I realize that this doesn’t have any direct connection to NASCAR, it’s just a fun thing to do, but in general rock music does complement racing.

So here’s the deal on the contest: one lucky winner will receive a Chinese Democracy prize pack that includes the CD, a poster, t-shirt and stickers. You’ve got from now until December 18th to enter the contest!

Happy Thanksgiving!
