CONCORD, N.C. (February 13, 2009) – It’s that time of year again…the start of the NASCAR season. And what would the season be for Roush Fenway fans without the You Pick ‘Em Challenge! The You Pick ‘Em Challenge is Roush Fenway Racing’s version of the popular fantasy racing games. Users can register to play by going to www.RoushFenway.com.
Each week, players try and guess the correct finishing positions of all eight Roush Fenway Racing drivers in all series. They earn points according to how accurately they predict the official finishing positions of all the Roush Fenway Racing drivers in every 2009 NASCAR race. After a full NASCAR season of play, the player with the highest points total will win their choice of either two pit passes or two grandstand tickets to the race of their choice! They will also receive a signed die-cast car from each of the five Roush Fenway Racing Cup drivers.
Prizes will also be awarded for second and third place. The runner-up will receive a collection of 2009 Roush Fenway Racing Cup Series collectible die-cast cars, each autographed by its respective driver. The third place finisher will win a prize package of Roush Fenway Racing merchandise valued at over $350.
Returning this year is the Roush Fenway Racing ‘Chase Challenge’. By scoring a top-10 result per driver division during any weekend/round during the first 30 race weekends of the 2009 season, players become eligible to compete in the Roush Fenway Racing ‘Chase Challenge’ during the last 10 races. All players who “make the Chase” will then compete during the final 10 race weekends for the Roush Fenway Racing You Pick ‘Em Challenge grand prizes, based on their cumulative scores from the last 10 races only.
Each week, the one player who scores the most points among all players in all eight divisions will win a Roush Fenway Racing hat and t-shirt.
Also returning this year are the Roush Fenway Racing You Pick ‘Em Challenge driver division games, or ‘games within the game,’ one for each of the eight 2009 Roush Fenway Racing drivers. All players must select which driver’s game they want to play in, and at the end of the season, each of the eight players with the highest score per game will receive an autographed 2008 Roush Fenway Racing collectible die cast car from the respective driver.
The 2008 winner, Cindy Entstrasser, and her guest will be attending the October race in Charlotte as “honorary pit crew members” for the day.
