You all know by now that I love me an alternate paint scheme. This weekend Jamie McMurray (or who my friend and I JamieMac) will be running a little different paint scheme this coming race in Texas. His hood will feature a special “Your Name Here 400″ logo announcing to fans everywhere that they can take part in the Crown Royal Your Name Here 400 contest.
According to the press release: Before Nov. 21, fans 21 years old and over can visit www.CrownRoyal.com to enter the contest by describing an accomplishment or honorable act worthy of toasting with Crown Royal. Selected finalists will enjoy an all-expenses-paid trip in February to the Daytona 500 where they will participate in an unveiling ceremony to announce the ‘Your Name Here 400’ grand prize winner.
In addition to having their name officially incorporated into the race, the grand prize winner will serve as the Grand Marshal in Richmond – allowing them to do everything from delivering the trophy in Victory Lane to yelling the most famous words in racing, “Gentlemen, start your engines!”
It sounds like fun to me. Who wouldn’t wouldn’t want to have a race named after them? And I have always wanted to be the one who gave the command to start engines…of course I say that now. Truthfully if I ended up in that position I would probably freak out and not be able to do it- have you ever seen how many people are actually at a race?
