In conjunction with the event launch, the first NASCAR Contenders Live sponsored by Toyota and Sprint Sweepstakes kicks off today by giving fans a chance to win an ultimate package that includes a 2012 Toyota Camry SE, two tickets to the NASCAR Contenders Live(SM) sponsored by Toyota and Sprint fan event, two VIP tickets and two VIP passes to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway Sept. 16, a one-year subscription to SiriusXM Satellite radio and $500 cash.
Fans can visit www.NASCAR.com/ContendersLive to enter the “Contenders Live” Sweepstakes until Aug. 30 at 3 p.m. ET.
Additionally, fans can visit the site to purchase tickets to NASCAR Contenders Live(SM) sponsored by Toyota and Sprint beginning on July 27.
“NASCAR has the most passionate fans in all of sports,” said Norris Scott, NASCAR vice president of partnership marketing and business solutions. “What better way to kick off the Chase than with an event that gives fans exclusive access inside a room with the sports’ top 12 drivers. This also serves as a unique program for Toyota and Sprint who support the sport heavily.”
