Your Pet’s Face Could Be Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s New Bumper Sticker!
I may be asking for the wrath of the hordes of loyal NASCAR fans out there, but I’ve never been a super fan of NASCAR. I admit it. Even the high speeds can’t help me get past just watching cars go around and around and around and around.
But I may have found a new appreciation for it, and especially one of NASCAR’s legendary drivers, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Apparently, a good ol’ boy who loves pets, together with his car’s sponsor, Nationwide, he’s announced a super cool contest for your pet!
The contest is called the Paws and Racing contest. Nationwide wants you to submit pictures of your pets–whatever variety they are–in order to win the chance to have their picture featured on Earnhardt’s infamous No. 88 Chevrolet. Yep, as he leaves other drivers in the dust, it’ll be your pooch’s or pussy’s face the other racers see. Not only that, but you and your pet will also get to meet Earnhardt and hang with his handsome dog, Gus.
Gus is well-known for being in attendance at many of his daddy’s races, and Nationwide knows that the JR Nation fans love their pets as much as Jr. loves his Gus!
The Grand Prize winner will get the VIP Race Experience, which will include traveling to, meeting and greeting with the Earnhardt’s as well the honor of appearing on the No. 88 car for the September 24 NASCAR race, so there’s time to get your picture in.
Although, based on the fact that Earnhardt’s need for speed is what makes him so epic, we suggest you step on it! To enter your pet’s picture or learn more about the contest, check out Nationwide’s Paws and Racing page.
