Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper have dropped the checkered flag on the “Race to Charlotte Sweepstakes” grand-prize weekend.
Fifty grand-prize winners arrived in Charlotte, North Carolina, last week for a once-in-a-lifetime, fun-filled VIP weekend of high-adrenaline racing, special guest appearances, first-class dining and over-the-top entertainment courtesy of Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.
Guests received top-shelf hospitality with chauffeured airport transportation to their comfortable accommodations at the downtown Sheraton Charlotte Hotel. They kicked things off with a welcome reception at Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Whisky River Restaurant, followed by laughing together with comedian Brian Regan at the Performing Arts Center.
On Friday, WIX Filters hosted a full day of the ultimate WIX experience. The grand-prize winners enjoyed lunch and a special behind-the-scenes plant tour followed by a private reception and dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Attendees dined in comfort surround by decades of NASCAR history. The evening concluded with pit-crew competitions and stock car simulator racing.
Saturday was a day to remember for car and racing enthusiasts alike. Valvoline treated the guests to an exclusive tour of Rick Hendrick’s Motorsports Garage and racing stable. The group received the red-carpet treatment with an exclusive tour of Hendrick’s personal car collection. The fun didn’t end there. That afternoon, Valvoline turned up the throttle by taking the winners to K1 Speed Indoor Kart Racing.
On Sunday, the weekend came to a roaring conclusion at the Bank of America 500 Roval at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The morning began with pit and garage tours followed by a driver meet-and-greet when Clint Bowyer visited the guests before hitting the track. The group enjoyed the thrill of high-speed road-course racing in first-class hospitality from the comfort of the WIX Filters suite.
“We would like to thank Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper for the once-in-a-lifetime experience on our Race to Charlotte trip,” said Stephanie and Joseph Heintjes of OTA Auto Care, Bumper to Bumper customers from Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey. “We have memories that will last a lifetime!”
