SPONSORED: Twisted Tea Gives Race Fans a Chance to Get their Face in the Race

Drinkers Can Enter Contest Where a Race Fan’s Photograph will be Painted on a Racecar for Race Day

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – As a sponsor of Richard Petty Motorsports for three years, the team at Twisted Tea knows at least two things first-hand: nothing goes better with watching a race than a cold Twisted Tea, and NASCAR fans are among the most loyal in the world of professional sports.

To celebrate this, Twisted Tea is leading up to the Talladega race with “Get Your Face in the Race” – a contest where a race fan’s photograph will be emblazoned on a racecar for race day. In this case, painted on Twisted Tea’s No. 44 Ford Fusion driven by Brian Scott, for the Darlington, South Carolina race in September 2016. The lucky winner will get to attend the race with three friends courtesy of Twisted Tea and see their face go around the track live that day.

“There is no better time to enjoy Twisted Tea, the smooth and refreshing hard iced tea that tastes like real iced tea, than during a race, or cheering on the drivers while watching the race at home. Based on the creativity we see in our drinkers who submit photos every year for our back labels, we expect this to be a high-octane competition,” said Robert Vail, member of the Twisted Tea team. “We know there are plenty of people out there passionate about both Twisted Tea and NASCAR and will want to know about this unique opportunity to get closer to the track.”

Twisted Tea is asking entrants to show their passion for racing as well as their love of Twisted Tea, and the winner will be chosen from photos that will be judged on creativity, cleverness and uniqueness. In addition to getting their face painted on the racecar, the winner will also win on-site bragging rights and be able to invite three friends to come along to Darlington.

Brian Scott will be driving Twisted Tea’s No. 44 Ford Fusion at the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on May 1, 2016. Coverage airs at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
