Register to Win “The Ultimate Augustmotive Giveaway,” Five Weekends, Five Events, Big Fun

CARLISLE, PA - Carlisle Events has been promoting automotive themed weekends in central Pennsylvania since 1974 and Pocono Raceway has been hosting motorsports events on its "Tricky Triangle" since 1971. While a lot has changed since that first race in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, 45-plus years ago, one thing remains the same; both companies combine to promote some of the largest automotive-based entertainment within the state of Pennsylvania annually. Now, both the Raceway and Carlisle Events are partnering for the giveaway of a lifetime; "The Ultimate Augustmotive Giveaway!"

The name of the giveaway is derived from the fact that every weekend day in the month of August hosts something automotive based, either an event promoted by Carlisle Events or racing at the 2.5 mile Pocono Raceway.

The fun starts in Long Pond August 1 and 2 with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series "Pocono Mountains 150," as well as the ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards "ModSpace 125." Race weekend at Pocono concludes with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series "Pennsylvania 400." The following weekends (August 7-9 and August 14-16), Carlisle Events goes back-to-back, hosting its two most family fun filled weekends, the Carlisle Truck Nationals in Carlisle and the Bloomsburg Nationals in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. The smiles per hour continue August 22 and 23 with Verizon IndyCar Series fun. Qualifying takes place on the 22nd, while the 23rd hosts the Verizon IndyCar Series "ABC Supply 500." The giveaway concludes for car lovers August 28-30 with the world renowned Corvettes at Carlisle event. In all, these five weekends will draw hundreds of thousands of guests into Pennsylvania and provide millions in economic impact dollars.

As for the prize itself, Carlisle Events and Pocono Raceway will provide one grand prize winner a pair of passes to each event. That means weekend access to some of the largest and most high profile automotive events in the region, all for free. Registration is simple too. By visiting http://www.poconoraceway.com/about/pocono-raceway-sweepstakes.html to sign up, hopefuls can not only register to win, they can also peruse the web and social media pages of both Carlisle Events and Pocono Raceway to see what each offers annually. Additional goodies may also be thrown in for the grand prize winner.

Pocono Raceway is offering as part of its prize pack, a set 300 level tickets in the shaded part of the grand stand as well as pit passes to each of their August races. This includes all three days of their July 31-August 2 race weekend. Races include the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, "Pennsylvania 400," the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series "Pocono Mountains 150," and the ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards "ModSpace 125." The fun continues with the same 300 level ticket offering and pit access for the Verizon INDYCAR "ABC Supply 500" as well as qualifying for the event.

To date, Carlisle Events will add on two monster truck rides at the Carlisle Truck Nationals (good for any day of the event) plus two unlimited game bands for the Phantom Fun Zone (kids activity area), a VIP lunch for two at the Bloomsburg Nationals (Saturday only) and for Corvettes at Carlisle, the chance to meet Chip Foose and have lunch with him on Saturday. Finally, at least for now, a $100 Visa Gift Card will be included to help offset some of the travel costs. More items may be added at the discretion of each company, but for now, that's what's on the line.

The contest goes live June 22 and deadline for entry is 11:59.59 p.m. on Sunday, July 19. The winner will be drawn and notified Monday, July 20. That way, the winner has enough time to plan their automotive adventure.
