Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 12, 2007
Indianapolis and Sporting Woman magazine will be offering one of their lucky national readers (and guest) the chance to experience Indianapolis and the largest single-day sporting event in the world, Indy 500, up-close and personal Memorial Day weekend. Via a police escort, the winner will zoom into the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway in a custom Indy racecar with two tickets to the Indy 500 and a private tour of the pits and garage area.
Beginning March 12, readers can enter to win an all expense paid trip to Indianapolis to witness the Indianapolis 500 auto race and experience the "Racing Capital of the World." The winner and a guest will fly roundtrip on Delta Airlines and receive a three-night stay at the luxurious Conrad Indianapolis hotel, one of three Conrad properties in the U.S., after Miami and Chicago. When it's time to be pampered, the winner will receive a spa treatment at the hotel's Spa Chakra including a wellness overview.
As part of the contest entry process, the magazine is asking subscribers to explain why they want to see female drivers Danica Patrick and Sarah Fisher try to hold off the guys in the 91st running of this iconic auto race.
While in Indianapolis, the winner will further their Indy weekend sporting experience by golfing Pete Dye's challenging Brickyard at the Crossing course, shooting hoops with basketball legend Bobby Plump, who hit the last second, game-winning shot featured in the basketball movie "Hoosiers," and taking a private tour alongside the head curator of the National Art Museum of Sport, which houses the largest collection of sport-related art in the nation.
Other getaway weekend highlights for the winner are: a catered dinner overlooking the iconic "LOVE" sculpture at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, a private wine-making lesson with a fourth-generation wine maker, an escort through town via a luxurious Rolls-Royce, and an incredible gondola ride along Indianapolis' Central Canal.
The winner and guest will fly to Indianapolis on Friday, May 25 and return on Monday, May 28, 2007. The deadline to register for the special Indianapolis getaway is April 30, 2007. In 50 words or less, contestants must tell why they would like to head to the "Racing Capital of the World" to see Danica Patrick and Sarah Fisher compete.
