Q- How did you hear about the 5-hour ENERGY® VIP Racing Sweepstakes?
A- I follow MWR on Twitter saw that they posted a contest. The day it opened up I entered and thought nothing of it until I got the email saying that I won.
Q- What inspired you to enter the sweepstakes?
A- I entered because the package was too good to pass up and with the thought that you have to be in the game to win it.
Q- How long have you been a racing fan?
A- I have been a NASCAR fan for years, but in 2006 I got the chance to attend a live NASCAR race. Clint and the MWR team are a team I respect. I like the team since Michael Waltrip raced for DEI, the team I became a fan of when I first started watching NASCAR.
Q- Are you a 5-hour ENERGY® fan? When did you first take 5-hour ENERGY®?
A- Yes, I am a fan. The first time I had 5-hour ENERGY® was on a road trip to North Carolina to visit family and attend a NASCAR race. I was heading through New Jersey around 4 a.m. and I knew if I didn’t do something I might fall asleep on the road. I stopped at a rest stop to see if they had anything that might help. I saw 5-hour ENERGY® and remembered a co-worker, who works nights, saying good things about it. I grabbed two and the rest is history.
Q- What was your initial reaction after you found out you had won the 5-hour ENERGY® VIP Sweepstakes?
A- My reaction was pure shock. I didn’t think I would win! Never in a million years did I think I would have a chance to be so close to the cars and the pit crews. I called everyone I know because I was so excited!
Q- Which part of the VIP Experience are you looking forward to most?
A- The whole experience is awesome, but there are two things I am looking forward to most. The first is having my name on the car because not many people can say they have had that happen to them. The other is being in the pits during a race. To be so close and to see the pit crew working so hard to make sure that car can win will be so exciting.
Q- How excited are you to see your name on Clint’s car?
A- It’s a dream come true. I have always wanted to drive in NASCAR but have never tried it, so instead of me driving the car and being a superstar like Clint, I can have this instead. I think it might be one of the greatest things to happen to me in my life so far.
Q- Have you entered other 5-hour ENERGY® contests/sweepstakes before?
A- I have never entered a 5-hour ENERGY® contest before but I might start to now. I told all my friends how awesome you guys are and to enter because you never know what you might win from 5-hour ENERGY®!
Q- What lucky person will you be taking with you?
A- I’m taking my cousin’s husband Kenny with me for this once in a lifetime experience. He took me to my first NASCAR race and we’ve been to a few other races. We’ve had so many great memories together through racing, so this will be another one to remember!
The 5-hour ENERGY® team will be checking in on Peter during and after his VIP racing experience, so stay tuned for updates. Congratulations Peter!
