The Daytona 500 is the ultimate destination for any NASCAR fan to attend. Everyone needs to see that race in person at least once. I got to go last year and my father was lucky enough to be at the classic 1979 race.
Busch Beer is going to give 500 people the opportunity to attend the 60th Daytona 500 next month in their “500 to the 500” contest. And if you’re looking for an all-inclusive trip, this is probably going to be your best bet.
First of all, this is a beer company supporting this so you have to be 21 or older. And if you are and want to enter, the main thing to do is to find a can of Busch or Busch Light that looks like a checkered flag. And if you do, take a picture with it and post it from a public account to any of Busch’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts with the hashtags #BuschToDaytona and #Contest.
If you see a can like this, definitely take a pic and enter the contest. But if you’re finding it tough to find one of these cans or don’t really feel like qualifying via the “Willy Wonka” route, you can download the wrap, as well as see the full rules, from Busch’s website.
In total, there will be 250 winners and each winner gets to take a guest to the race. So even if you don’t win, hopefully you have a great friend who would be willing to take you to the “Great American Race.”
Busch Beer has had a rather notable history in the Daytona 500. In that 1979 race, Cale Yarborough clashed with Donnie Allison while the two were leading with a half lap to go and provided one of the greatest finishes in NASCAR history. Yarborough was driving a Busch sponsored car so while they are part of an iconic moment in NASCAR history, I think they would rather see Kevin Harvick in victory lane in a Busch sponsored car.
