ride shotgun with The Richard Petty Driving Experience. It was one of the most terrifying and joyous experiences of my life.
How would you like to have that opportunity this fall? What if I told you that you could be wheeled around the 1.5 mile Charlotte Motor Speedway by a Sprint Cup Series driver? How would you feel if I told you Dale Earnhardt Jr. would be your driver?
Do I have your attention now?
This morning our friends at Lionel Racing launched a new contest that gives race fans a chance to win a once in a lifetime experience this October at Charlotte and all you have to do is show your racing personality.
Sounds easy enough, right?
To enter this contest head over to Lionel Racing’s Facebook page and answer a few questions about the type of fan you are.
One grand prize winner will be chosen to hit the high banks of CMS alongside Dale Jr. on Wednesday October 9, 2013 for a three lap experience. Last year’s winner, Bette Paquet, a grandmother from New Hampshire, had a blast and now you can too! Check out the video of Bette's ride below.
