“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.

Thanks to the awesome people at Quicken Loans I’m giving away twenty, that’s 2-0, No. 39 Quicken Loans mini-diecasts! If you love Ryan Newman you’re gonna want to win one of these.
Tomorrow night is the Coke Zero 400 presented by Coca-Cola at Daytona International Speedway. Not like I needed to tell you that, right? But there are some cool things we need to talk about first.
Pepsi MAX wants you to MAX it Now! Why? Because you could win some pretty awesome prizes. This is especially great if you’re a serious Jeff Gordon fan.
Did you know that April is National Safe Digging Month? Well, it is and if you’re going to plant a tree (Earth Day was last weekend, but it’s still a good idea to plant a tree!) you should call 811 to make sure you don’t put yourself or others in danger.
Who doesn’t love a giveaway?! I certainly do and the fine folks at Hunt Brothers Pizza gave me some good stuff to hand over to a couple lucky winners. I have a couple of HBP Racing hats, one signed by Kevin Harvick and another signed by Elliott Sadler, plus two HBP Racing t-shirts and some HBP Racing Hero Cards. Just fill out the form below (one per email address) and you’ll be entered to win!
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.
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!
As the title suggests, Shell has given me one fabulous prize pack to give away to one of you lucky people! It’s all apart of promoting Shell’s “Favorite Road Trip Sweepstakes.” Just tell them about your favorite road trip or road trip memory for a chance to win free gas for a YEAR!
Shell is giving race fans a chance to win FREE Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline for up to a year with the Favorite Road Trip Sweepstakes. Through September 5, customers can enter and find rules by visiting a href=”http://www.shell.us/roadtrip” target=”_blank”>shell.us/roadtrip. All they have to do is submit a short story of their favorite road trip or memory for a chance to win a year’s supply of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines, which help protect critical engine parts from the build-up of “gunk”. Daily winners will also be randomly selected to win a $100 Shell Gift Card. No purchase necessary.
I got the chance to speak with Kurt Busch himself this week and found out that HIS favorite road trip memory is of the times he spent traveling the 12 hours from his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada to Denver, Colorado to go racing early in his career. Said Kurt, “It was so gorgeous driving through the desert plains and up into the hills and then it changed into the evergreens and the snow. It was a really fun trip we did all through the years.”
Ya know, I can remember a time when gas cost only $1 a gallon. Isn’t that crazy? It wasn’t THAT long ago either, I think I was in high school. Anyway, I’m talking about gasoline because Shell is giving away FREE gas for FIVE YEARS for one lucky person in their Fuel My Passion Sweepstakes. Five freaking years. If there was ever a contest to get in on, this would be the one. Also, runners-up have the chance to win free gas for a year!
Shell is giving race fans a chance to win FREE Shell V-Power® premium gasoline for up to five years with the Fuel My Passion Sweepstakes. From April 13 through June 22, customers can enter by going to www.shell.us/fuelmypassion. All they have to do is show their passion for what they drive by entering their information and uploading a photo of themselves showing the “Power of the V” sign, a peace sign with your palm facing the camera, alongside their ride. The contest is “fueled” by Shell V-Power customers looking for optimum performance or those drivers who simply expect the most from their vehicles.
To promote this awesome sweepstakes Shell is giving me the opportunity to give away a special prize pack featuring everybody’s favorite “Dancing with the Stars” Champion, and IndyCar driver, Helio Castroneves.
One lucky reader will receive the following:
- Helio Castroneves t-shirt

Who 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!

Have you been enjoying “The Tony Stewart School of Endorsements” commercials? So have I, they’re pretty funny. I find myself saying “Estrada!” out of nowhere to no one in particular.
Check out this behind the scenes footage from the filming of those ads:
This is a big deal people so listen up!
STP, sponsors of the iconic red and blue No. 43 STP car since 1972 that Richard Petty drove to victory lane many, many times during his amazing career, has put together a series of videos to document and celebrate the silver anniversary of The King’s 200th win.
The one-of-a-kind video series titled, “Crowning Achievement,” examines Petty’s 200th victory from back in 1984 (I was only 4 years old! ha!) and follows him during his 25th anniversary celebration at Daytona on July 4th of this year.
I 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

Let’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!

In other news…
– Here’s an opportunity to win face time with Carl Edwards, I mean, the Gillette Young Guns, yeah that’s what I meant:
With the Chase in full swing, crew chiefs Bob Osborne and Mike Ford will be focusing on the most precise details to give Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin every advantage possible on the track. But these two crew chiefs won’t just be assisting their respective teams, they’ll also be helping out NASCAR fans who enter the new Gillette Young Guns TimeShaver Challenge that rewards weekly prizes and a chance to race with the Young Guns to those aligned with the driver who shaves the most off his pit road time each week. Fans can be paired with a driver by purchasing a Gillette Fusion razor or visiting http://www.gilletteyoungguns.com.
In addition to weekly group prizes, the “TimeShaver Challenge” will provide 10 grand prize winners the chance to travel to Charlotte, N.C., and compete in a customized driving school led by the Gillette Young Guns, which include Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne and 2008 Daytona 500 Champion Ryan Newman.
I’m sure you’ve all seen that Shell Pennzoil commercial featuring Kevin Harvick, ya know, the one where he picks up the Shell engineers from their homes to take them to work but refuses to turn right. I have to say he’s pretty adorable when he says “I hate engine gunk.”
So did you notice Kevin sporting a new hat at Watkins Glen a couple weeks ago? His hat (as seen in the photo at left) promotes Shell’s new Americans for a Gunk-Free Nation (AGFN) program. The purpose is to protect the nation’s engines from gunk.
I’m not mechanically inclined, so I just make sure to choose gasoline that is made with high level cleaning agents, the kind of stuff you can find at Shell.
Ok, so now the good part: The great folks at Shell have given me five (5) Americans for a Gunk-Free Nation hats autographed by Kevin Harvick to give away! So don’t think, just
enter the contest today. The contest ends on September 30, 2008. The contest has ended
To learn more about living gunk-free check out the Americans for a Gunk-Free Nation website.
A few weeks ago I was given a copy of a new NASCAR DVD set entitled “Full Throttle Adrenaline Volumes 1 & 2″ to check out. I have to say that it’s a really cool and interesting set.
The first disc is hosted by Fox Sports pit road reporter Steve Byrnes who takes you through a bunch of classic race finishes and crashes. There were moments that I hadn’t seen before like the time when Michael Waltrip had a truly gnarly crash into the side of a wall that basically peeled his car a part like a banana. It also shows the moment when Michael proposed to his wife Buffy in victory lane. There’s commentary from drivers like Ricky Craven and Kurt Busch recounting their super close finish at Darlington back in 2003.
The second disc is my favorite. It features interviews with various crew chiefs, owners and drivers like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Casey Mears, Ryan Newman and Boris Said. They talk a little bit about their lives away from the track. You get to see Ryan’s classic car collection and Boris’ adorable blond & curly haired son. I think seeing a driver out of their element is a great way to get perspective on what they’re like as just regular dudes.
The discs also have extras like a trip to the NASCAR Research and Development Center in Charlotte and an in depth look at Elliott Sadler’s crazy crash at Talladega in 2003.
I was given three extra copies of this awesome DVD set to giveaway.
Enter the contest today! The contest ends on July 4, 2008.
I watched it last night and it gives you some really cool insight into the history, legacy and champions of the Daytona 500, NASCAR’s biggest and most significant race as we all know. The first disc is an interactive experience that allows you to watch this year’s Daytona 500 from the driver’s perspective. It’s pretty trippy to feel like you’re in the car with them. The featured drivers include Kasey Kahne, Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and of course the race winner Ryan Newman. You get to hear the team radio communications and you also have the option of switching to the broadcast coverage as well.
The second disc gives you a round table discussion (or square table as Michael Waltrip put it) with past Daytona 500 winners like David Pearson, Junior Johnson and Mario Andretti to name a few. The conversation is great and full of little interesting anecdotes, plus great footage from the archives of the race’s history. Oh and I just want to say that it’s pretty uncanny how much IndyCar driver Marco Andretti looks like his grandfather Mario when he was in his twenties. But I digress. The second disc also features some interviews with drivers from today including Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick.
I highly recommend this DVD set to anyone that is a serious NASCAR fan. It’s a cool way to experience the race all over again. This DVD set is available for purchase online and you can also win a copy of the set from me! I was given an extra copy to give away to one of my awesome readers!
Click here to enter the contest. The contest is over! Thanks!
