Ever wanted to take a hot lap around "The Magic Mile" of New Hampshire Motor Speedway? For the third consecutive year, you can!
NHMS will host the FANtasy Drive Open House on April 7, 2012. The free Open House runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with all-access to the facility and anyone with a ticket for a 2012 NASCAR race at NHMS may drive three laps in their own car. But, if that's not fast enough, then NHMS has an opportunity for you.
The speedway is offering more speed to the winner of its FANtasy Drive Photo Contest. One lucky participant will be given the chance to ride along with Richard Petty Driving Experience, when it visits NHMS this summer.
The photo contest is simple to enter. The picture must feature both the fan and the car they plan on driving around the track at FANtasy Drive. Entrants are encouraged to don their NASCAR gear and decorate their vehicle of choice as they see fit. Friends, family members and pets are also allowed in the photo. Participants are encouraged to produce a new photo, but a past photo of the NASCAR-looking enthusiast and their car at a tailgate or other such NASCAR event is acceptable.
Participants should post their photo to the NHMS Facebook page with "My FANtasy Drive" in the caption. Entries will be accepted from Thursday, March 8 through Sunday, March 25 (11:59 p.m. ET), and there is a maximum of one entry per person. On March 26, five finalists will be chosen and a poll will be created on the Facebook page. Voting will go until noon (ET) on Monday, April 2. Winners will be announced and contacted on the afternoon of April 2.
The first prize is a gift card for a ride-along with Richard Petty Driving Experience. Second prize is a Ryan Newman signed NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour hat. Third prize is a portable SYLVANIA 300 stadium blanket. All prizes must be picked up on April 7, 2012, during the FANtasy Drive event.
