MOORESVILLE, N.C. – The Dale Jr. Foundation has rejuvenated its Camaro giveaway program by incentivizing the raffle and offering ticket buyers the chance to win more prizes. Now with the purchase of a $25 ticket you not only become eligible to win Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s personal 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible but also VIP race weekend experiences and monthly prizes such as autographed sheet metal and merchandise. The Dale Jr. Foundation will draw among each month’s ticket buyers and award prizes from now until the promotion’s end on Oct. 1. “We want people to buy raffle tickets, but we don’t want to make them wait until October to find out if they win anything,” said Dale Earnhardt Jr., who started his foundation in 2007 to help support underprivileged individuals. “This gives fans the opportunity to win stuff before the October grand prize giveaway. This Camaro program is a big fundraiser for my foundation, and we want to drive awareness to it, give people more reasons to buy tickets, and also increase their chances of winning something.” This is the second year Earnhardt Jr. has given away a Camaro from his own collection. Like he did last year, NASCAR’s nine-time Most Popular Driver will personally hand over the keys to one lucky winner. Gale Fontaine of Roanoke Va., took ownership of the grand-prize Camaro last year. She came to JR Motorsports in October, 2011, with her husband, Carle, and was surprised when Earnhardt Jr. himself handed over the keys. “I still can’t believe we won,” she said after sitting in her new ride. “I’ve been a Dale Jr. fan since day one. When I got the call that I won, I was at work.  My boss said, ‘Did you win the lottery?’ I said, ‘Well, yes I did! I won the Camaro!’ It was exciting. I bought that ticket because I’m a Dale Jr. fan, the Camaro is a great-looking car, and because the money goes to The Dale Jr. Foundation.” This year, the inferno orange 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Convertible is equipped with a 6.2L V8 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission with tap shifter. It features a black interior with inferno orange accents on the front and rear seats, and 20-inch aluminum wheels finished in midnight silver. Winner of the runner-up drawing will win a VIP race experience that includes round-trip airfare for two, pit/garage access, and seats atop the JR Motorsports No. 88 team pit box for any NASCAR Nationwide Series event of their choosing. The third-place winner will receive a race-weekend package to the Nationwide Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, 2013.  This package includes pit and garage access, round-trip airfare for two and $200 spending money in the JR Nation store. Monthly prizes include race-used sheet metal, autographed diecast cars and official crew shirts. Fans can log on to www.WinDaleJrsRide.com to enter. The raffle ends Oct. 1, 2012. No more than 8,888 tickets will be sold.
