Remember back when I told you that I would be giving you reminders about the different contests that are all part of Walmart’s Fan Driven 400 contest? Well – it is now time for PART 2- helping decide the name of the race!  Fans submitted their ideas for names on the Walmart Fan Driven Facebook page- those entries have now been narrowed down to three possible names for the 400 mile race in Pocono:

  1. Race More. Live Better–submitted by Carrie Conway Wilson
  2. Pocono for the People–submitted by Diane Martin Carroll
  3. Party in the Poconos–submitted by Shawn McMillan

Be sure to exercise your right to VOTE right now!   You are able to vote once a day, every day until April 8!  So head on over to the Walmart Fan Driven Facebook Page and help choose the name of the Pocono 400.

Also don’t forget that you can purchase tickets for the Fan Driven 400 race on June 9 for ONLY $25!  That’s a GREAT deal!  You better hurry though, there will only be 16,000 of these specially priced tickets. There are also TRACK PACK deals available for 16 other races that include a family pack of tickets- making NASCAR affordable fun for the whole family!!  Tickets can be purchased at Walmart.com/NASCAR (for the Fan Driven 400 and/or Track Pack offers)  or through Pocono Raceway at poconoraceway.com/ (For Fan Driven 400 tickets only).

If you are a NASCAR fan you know that NASCAR strives to be extremely fan friendly using social media- well that goes for sponsors too! What am I talking about? Walmart is putting you, the NASCAR fan, in control of the June 9th Pocono 400.  Walmart wants NASCAR fans to help them NAME THE RACE! How cool is that? But it doesn’t stop there! Not only do you get to help NAME A RACE (the Pocono 400) but you also get to help choose a signature concession and a pace car design for the race!  You the NASCAR Fan are in control of the Fan Driven 400!

And it all starts NOW!

First step? Submit your name for the Pocono 400 race!  Walmart wants YOU to name the June 9th 400 miles race at Pocono! So put your thinking caps on and submit your idea using the My Local Walmart/Fan Driven ap on Facebook.  You only have until February 25th to submit your idea- that is only 10 days people so get to submitting!

Then starting March 11th (don’t worry I will be back to remind you) go back to the My Local Walmart/Fan Driven Facebook page to find out the three names that it was narrowed down to and VOTE on your favorite!!  In April you can vote on one of three types of pierogies to be the featured concession at the race.  Then in May can vote for one of three pace car designs for the to-be-named race at Pocono.  It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure race (am I the only one who liked those choose your own adventure books?) where your votes will decide!

Just to thank NASCAR Fans- Walmart is going to offer 16,000 Concourse grandstand tickets to the June 9th race for $25 each! That is a steal!  Tickets are on sale now through Pocono Raceway or through Walmart.Com/NASCAR. Also- there will be $99 Family Track Pack (that’s 4 tickets, 4 sodas and 4 hotdogs for $99) offers for many of the races (Las Vegas, Fontana, Darlington, Charlotte, Dover, Michigan, Daytona (July race), New Hampshire, Pocono (August race), Watkins Glen, Atlanta and Homestead)…the Family Track Packs can also be purchased at walmart.com/nascar!

So don’t forget to go to the My Local Walmart/Fan Driven Facebook ap and enter YOUR idea for the the name of the race! I will be posting in the future to remind you of the other deadlines!
