Game Through www.rir.com Gives Fans a Chance to Cash In
Richmond, VA (February 16, 2011)—You love NASCAR, and everyone loves money. So, Richmond International Raceway president Doug Fritz is combining the two and giving you the chance to win $100,000. Every week of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, race fans will have the chance to win some serious cash with the $100K Top 10 For the Win contest. Fans are invited to submit their weekly predictions for the top 10 finishing order of each NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race during the 2011 season. If a fan predicts the top 10 in exact order, he or she wins $100,000!
The contest, which is featured at www.rir.com/contest, opens the Tuesday (9:00 a.m. ET) preceding that weekend’s race, with entries accepted until Friday (noon ET). A maximum of 5,000 entries will be accepted each week. If no contestant correctly picks the exact top 10 finishing order of a race, no cash prize will be awarded.
Fans are encouraged to return every week to enter the contest for a chance at the $100,000 prize. Weekly prizes will be awarded to the fan who picks the race’s winning driver and is closest to predicting the number of laps led by the winner.
