Amp Energy 500 Contest (2009) – Ride With Dale Promotion
What is this contest? It is a entry based competition were select NASCAR fans, celebrities, political groups, and other significant entries are chosen to be placed on the #88 car in a race.
The chosen winners will be “Riding With Dale” Sunday, November 1st, at the AMP Energy 500 from Talladega Superspeedway. The race will be broadcast live on ABC at Noon.
There were so many entries that Pepsi decided to place names on Dale Jr’s Pit wall for the race.
Kaitlin’s name was put on Dale Jr’s Pit Wall for the race.
We chose to write Pepsi regarding the contest to thank them for extending the contest to include the wall as we knew there were loads of entries.
Surprisingly, Pepsi wrote us back:

We were not able to obtain any pictures of Dale Jr’s wall but we have pictures from the AMP Energy contest web site and the PDF with her name in it. Just a few memories to add to her blog.
