Virginia Tourism Corporation, Martinsville Speedway Combine For Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes

Families who love NASCAR will love the latest vacation sweepstakes from the Virginia Tourism Corporation.  Starting July 15, race fans can enter to win the Virginia is for Racing Lovers Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes – an over-the-top race inspired vacation to Martinsville for the October 24 Sprint Cup race, the TUMS Fast Relief 500. U.S. residents 21 and older can enter online at

The contest runs through September 17, 2010.

The grand prize winner and three guests will fly to Virginia for VIP treatment at the TUMS Fast Relief 500.  The grand prize puts the winners at the edge of the action, literally, with the use of a 30-foot luxury recreational vehicle parked trackside at Martinsville Speedway’s Champions Overlook.  The RV will be filled with groceries provided by Kroger and decked out in Virginia is for Lovers apparel and prizes.   As part of the package, the winning family will have a VIP meet and greet with a Sprint Cup driver and be treated to sights and destinations in and around Martinsville.

“Racing is a tradition that brings families to Virginia to experience the thrill of NASCAR together,” said Alisa Bailey, President and CEO of the Virginia Tourism Corporation.  “This new sweepstakes is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get about as close to the race as you can, without actually driving in it. It’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for the winner and their family.”

“We are always looking for new ways to reach our fans and to give them an experience they can’t get anywhere else. The Virginia is for Racing Lovers Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes may be the most exciting thing we’ve ever done in that area,” said Martinsville Speedway President W. Clay Campbell.
