** Editor’s note: with rain likely delaying the race at Bristol, contest will take place whenever the race does take place, be it Sunday evening or Monday. Winner will still be selected sometime on Tuesday.
I’m sure you’ve heard of those “win it before you can buy it” contests that radio stations seem to be so fond of. Now, Stock Car Spin is getting in on the action. We have a couple of copies of NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip’s soon to be released book, The Race. The book is scheduled to hit bookstore shelves in May, but you can win a copy from us in March. Here’s what we’re asking you to do:
Whether you’re at Bristol (Ten.) Motor Speedway this weekend or plan to watch the race from the comfort of your couch, recliner, favorite sports bar, etc., tweet us a photo (Twitter.com/scsblog) of yourself and/or friends and family watching the Bristol action or getting ready to enjoy the race. Sometime on Tuesday, we’ll post some of our favorites in a photo gallery on the site and pick a winner. That’s all there is to it.
And what better race weekend to have this contest than Bristol. After all, Waltrip is the track’s winningest driver, claiming 12 NASCAR Cup wins at the track, including seven-straight. He even once lapped the field en route to a Bristol win in the late 1970s.
Here is some information on the book from B&H Publishing Group:
“The mission of Motor Racing Outreach is to introduce the racing community to a personal faith in Jesus and active church involvement through relationships that provide care in times of stress, knowledge of God’s Word, and assistance in the development of leadership skills. In The Race, MRO leaders Billy Mauldin and Kyle Froman share the divine lessons they’ve learned in the pits and among the NASCAR community to help others with their personal mission—preparing for it, receiving it, and then living faithfully on mission. Throughout, three-time NASCAR champion and Hall of Fame inductee Darrell Waltrip offers related anecdotes on what it takes to win the race, giving fans an inside look at his storied profession and the personal belief in God that keeps him on mission. “We, too, are racers in the middle of the greatest race known to mankind: life. We want to live in a way that, when we reach our finish line, we can be proud of what we’ve accomplished. We want to be an example for our family and friends. And if we are a follower of Christ, we want to hear the words ‘well done my good and faithful servant.’”
