The first thing I have to say while reading about this latest NASCAR paint scheme promotion is: Am I eligible to win?
This weekend at the NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race, one lucky fan will win Busch Beer and Smithfield bacon for life! That’s right a lifetime supply of everyone’s favorite beverage (cold beer) and everyone’s favorite food (crispy, salty bacon)!
The giveaway will be tied into the paint schemes of both Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 and Aric Almirola’s No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustangs. Harvick will carry the Busch Beer logos with strips of bacon adorning the base of the paint scheme, while Almirola will carry the Smithfield Foods logo, which will be capped off with golden foamy beer on the sides of the car.
For Almirola, being part of such a unique giveaway for the fans is awesome, and he’s hoping it brings his No. 10 team some luck this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
“Any time we get a chance to give our fans something to root for and something to win is always a cool opportunity,” Almirola said in a team release. “To have partners like Smithfield and Busch who invest in our fan base really helps the entire sport and gives our fans something to engage with during the races. I’m pretty familiar with giving away bacon for life so, hopefully, this collaboration brings us some good luck.”
Harvick feels with the unique no-points format of the All-Star Race that his No. 4 team can try some things out on track in an effort to help them score their first points-paying win of the year in the near future.
“You can definitely try some stuff, and you definitely have to approach the All-Star Race like it’s for the end of the year,” Harvick said. “Obviously, you want to put yourself in position to win the All-Star Race because that’s cool. But in the end, you want to have the right notes and things for the end of the year.”
In order for fans to win the lifetime supply of both, all they have to do is tune into the NASCAR All-Star Race on FS1 at 8PM ET on Sunday, following @BuschBeer on Twitter and on the fourth lap and 10th lap of each Stage of the All-Star Race, simply tweet #BuschBacon for a chance to win.
That’s it. Minimal effort. Maximum giveaway. Incredible!
