LONG POND, PA (July 25, 2012) – The 2012 Presidential race is heating up and our very own Pocono Raceway President and CEO, Brandon Igdalsky, is initiating his own campaign with a bold prediction on his pick to win the Pennsylvania 400. Igdalsky is so confident with his pick, he will give $100,000 away to one lucky race fan if Dale Earnhardt, Jr., wins “The Tricky Triangle” 400-miler on Sunday, August 5th. Yes, you heard it right the first time! One lucky fan can walk away $100,000 richer if Dale Jr. wins the Pennsylvania 400!
“While watching the 2012 Presidential races, I decided it was time to make a campaign pledge of my own,” said Igdalsky. “My campaign strategy is simple. Pick a driver with a legitimate shot of winning the Pennsylvania 400 and give $100,000 to a race fan if he wins! The fans visiting Pocono Raceway each year are the greatest fans in all of motorsports. Without them, nothing we do would be possible. It is time to give back to the people! We will all be watching anxiously on August 5th to see if Dale Jr. can win. If he does, I will gladly cut one of them a check!”
Fans can enter the “Pocono Presidential Pick for $100,000” by visiting any of our Official Pocono Raceway souvenir trailers, stands or tents, located throughout our facility, during the Pennsylvania 400 race weekend. Once there, they will be required to fill out a simple entry blank to become automatically entered.
The Pocono Raceway staff will randomly select an individual at the half-way point of the Pennsylvania 400. If the No. 88 Chevrolet, piloted by Dale Jr. takes the checkered flag, they will win $100,000! Additionally, four other winners will be chosen at random, along with the potential $100,000 winner, with each receiving two Terrace Club tickets to a 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of their choice at Pocono Raceway, regardless of the outcome of the 2012 Pennsylvania 400.
Entrants must be 16 years of age or older and do not need to be present at time of random drawing to win. No purchase necessary. For more information, including additional rules and regulations, please visit www.poconoraceway.com/100k.
