LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Goodyear, the “Official Tire of NASCAR,” has announced the “Burnout Sweepstakes,” giving NASCAR fans a chance to win the ultimate race weekend experience.

The launch coincides with the company’s first-ever sponsorship of the NASCAR Burnout Blvd Driven by Goodyear event that took place in Las Vegas on Sept. 12.

Many people spotted the blimp flying over the Las Vegas Strip this week and took to social media.

Between now and Sept. 29, fans who share their predictions for the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion on social media using hashtag #Burnout[Car#] with the driver’s stock car number and hashtag #Sweepstakes will be automatically entered to win.

Prizes include a trip to the 2020 Daytona 500 and a ride in the iconic Goodyear Blimp, for full details you can visit this website.

“The Burnout Sweepstakes is a chance for NASCAR fans to join the excitement of the NASCAR Playoffs and take a shot at predicting the 2019 NASCAR champion,” said Todd Macsuga, general manager of Brand Marketing for Goodyear. “We’re excited to offer them this opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime race experience.”

Goodyear expanded its long-standing relationship with NASCAR by taking over as the title sponsor of NASCAR Burnout Blvd Driven by Goodyear earlier this year.

The blimp was scheduled to be present at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, South Point 400 on Sept. 15 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where the first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs winner will be crowned. However, due to maintenance issues the blimp has been grounded for the time being.
