NASCAR fans are obviously very passionate, and they love showing off that passion
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
The Official NASCAR Members Club announced today that it has launched the innovative NASCAR Biggest Fan 2008 Contest (http://www.nascarbiggestfan.com) which pays more than $40,000 prize money to the winners and extends the opportunity for all NASCAR fans to prove their "fanhood!"
The contest, in which NASCAR fans register, post up to five videos, view and rate others, takes advantage of the power of the internet as well as the viral power of NASCAR fans coast to coast.
Once the winner is chosen by a blue-ribbon panel of expert judges, the ONMC will hand out $40,000 in combined prize money to the top three finishers. The NASCAR fan who submits the winning video earns $25,000 cash and year-long bragging rights, while second-place prize money is $10,000. Third place is worth $5,000, and fourth place receives a $1,000 shopping spree at the NASCAR.COM SuperStore.
To enter, log on to http://www.nascarbiggestfan.com, fill out the registration screens and start surfing! Once registered, NASCAR fans will be able to post their own videos at http://www.nascarbiggestfan.com showing why they are the biggest fan of NASCAR. Participants will also be able to look at all the other NASCAR videos posted on the site to gauge the competition, rate them via a star system, vote on them and discuss them with friends.
The site will remain open and able to take submissions until Nov. 7, and a week later the online voting will stop. The blue-ribbon panel of judges will winnow down the submissions to the top 25, which will then be the finalists for the grand prize.
Those finalists will go back on the site for another round of voting, lasting from Nov. 15-30. The judges will then determine the winner of the $25,000 top prize, which will be announced the first week of December on http://www.nascarbiggestfan.com.
The Official NASCAR Members Club, which has its finger on the pulse of NASCAR fandom, is partnered in this contest by ZigZadZ (http://www.zigzadz.com), a user-generated content company that brings users together with advertisers, to bring NASCAR Biggest Fan 2008 to market.
"NASCAR fans are obviously very passionate, and they love showing off that passion," said ONMC vice-president Larry Griffiths. "We're really happy that we're going to be able to allow them the opportunity to have that platform and use their creativity.
"We think, together, we can create a brand-new, powerful, fun channel for fans to take part in the phenomenon of becoming rich and famous."
