You may have noticed that lately Kyle Busch has been driving the Pretzel M&M car (it’s the blue one). I will tell you this? I LOVE the Pretzel M&M’s- and if it hadn’t been for Kyle and that car I probably would have never discovered them because I am not a big M&M eater in general- so that is your marketing money at work right there M&M/Mars! The Pretzel M&M’s are my new favorite candy and if you come to me bearing a baggie of Pretzel M&M’s* I will love you forever and probably do nearly anything you wanted. Every time I see the Pretzel M&M car I want a baggie. It’s like the crack of candy with its tons of chocolatey, crunchy, salty goodness.
And how on earth did I get stuck on that tangent of too much information? By wanting to tell you about the M&M’s Most Colorful Fans contest. This contest is actually the perfect pairing because as many of you know, NASCAR fans are a varied, colorful, loving, devoted breed of people (as demonstrated in my favorite NASCAR book THE WEEKEND STARTS ON WEDNESDAY- pick up a copy- you know you want it!) and M&M’s being the colorful candy they are want to recognize the most colorful NASCAR fan.
This is the third year M&M has run this particular contest…and entering is easy. Enter your favorite NASCAR themed photo (fan – ha that is a funny typo so I am leaving it…enter your fan- not your photo…good luck with figuring out how to upload a fan!) that showcases your love of the sport/your favorite driver and/or team by uploading it to NASCAR.com/mostcolorfulfans between now and September 6th! Just by uploading a picture you get a fifteen percent off a one-time purchase at the NASCAR.COM Superstore, including free shipping so you are already a winner! Other fans vote on their favorite photo and you could win one of the weekly $500 gift cards if you are chosen! There is also an instant win game were you could win a $50.00 gift card. Three finalist will be chosen to vie for the title of M&M Most Colorful fan.
The NASCAR fan deemed most colorful will win a trip to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, $10,000 and a yearlong featured display within the Hall of Fame! Awesome prize right? Just watch this video about last year’s winner:
I bet you could sneak in a trip to your favorite race team’s shop while in Charlotte at the Hall of Fame if you won. If I won you know I would be like “yah yah that’s fine…now where is Stewart-Haas Racing again?”
*No M&M’s were consumed during the writing of this post-pretzel or otherwise…and that is a shame!
