Race fans love having their picture taken with the Bristol Motor Speedway pace car. Now they have the opportunity not just to go home with a photo, but the car itself.
Beginning March 18, Bristol Motor Speedway, Scotts EZ Seed and Ford, will give fans the chance to win the official 2011 BMS 50th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang pace car plus a pallet of Scotts EZ Seed product to beautify their lawn. Fans can register for the Bristol Golden Giveaway, which honors the Speedway’s 50th anniversary, at www.bms50.com. The Mustang, valued at more than $44,000, features a number of upgrades, including a custom metallic gold paint job, Ford Racing wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and a power exhaust upgrade.
Three fans ultimately will be selected as finalists for the chance to win the Official Bristol Motor Speedway 50th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang Pace Car. All active 2011 Bristol Motor Speedway ticket account holders with a valid email address on file automatically will be entered. Two fans names will be selected from the pool of entries while a third fan will be chosen during a special 50th Anniversary fan event which takes place at the Speedway July 30. Those three fans all win a trip to Bristol Motor Speedway for the August 26-27 night races, along with suite passes for the weekend, pit passes, Scotts and BMS 50th anniversary merchandise and parking passes. Twenty weekly prizes consisting of Scotts and BMS 50th anniversary merchandise will also be awarded on www.bms50.com.
The three finalists will attend the pre-race show for the IRWIN Tools Night Race. Each will receive a key and the fan with the key that starts the Official BMS pace car, which will have led the field for all NASCAR events at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile in 2011, wins this special edition vehicle to drive home!
