#1 Fan Video Contest - Richard Petty Driving Experience
#1 Fan Video Contest



Are you Richard Petty Driving Experience's #1 Fan? Show us! We want to see what makes you our biggest fan. Have you traveled across the country just to drive? Was this part of your Bucket List? Did you sell your own car just to drive one of ours?

Grab your video camera (and creativity) and put together a video (up to 2 minutes) showing us why you are Richard Petty Driving Experience's #1 Fan! Gather up photos of your Ride or Drive, pull out the video of your experience, and use anything else to showcase why you are an extreme fan.

Once your video has been put together, submit it to us (per the instructions to the right) and we will review it. If it's selected as one of our Top 10 favorites we will then post it on our Facebook Page for our other fans to see. The Top 3 videos (based on "likes") on November 18th will be judged by 'The King' himself, Richard Petty. The winner (selected by Richard Petty) will win a King's Driving Experience Private Class for themselves plus 3 of their friends. So start putting together your video and gathering your Facebook friends to "like" your video once it's been selected in the Top 10 on our Facebook Page, because Richard Petty didn't win 200 races by hesitating!
