If you are despairing over whether or not you can afford a trip to The Brickyard to witness the Indianapolis 500, well friend, despair no more. The IndyCar series has teamed up with eBay for their new “And the winner is...” promotion, and the result is quite the little gift package.

Beginning on Monday, February 4th and running through Friday, February 29th, eBay, along with the IndyCar Series and the Grammy Foundation, celebrates "Awards Season" by giving consumers a chance to nominate themselves to win one of three unique Grand Prize Awards. The grand prizes - "The Need for Speed Award," the "Most Victorious Shopper Award," and the "Party Like A Rock Star Award" have all been created to highlight winning moments in sports, entertainment and shopping on eBay.

The Need for Speed Award package includes a VIP trip for four to the 2008 Indianapolis 500. The trip will include four tickets to the race, airfare and hotel accommodations, access to at-track hospitality, a behind-the-scenes tour of the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a ride around the track in a pace car, and a $1,000 gift certificate from eBay.

Each day, eBay members will visit the game at Once registered for the game, consumers can select a Shop Victoriously Award Envelope to get an entry into the grand prize sweepstakes drawing of their choosing. Clicking on an envelope will not only register consumers into the sweepstakes drawing, but will activate an instant win game which will award more than 1,000 eBay gift certificates during the promotional period.

So, Grammys or Indy. Shakira or Danica. Decisions decisions decisions. Speaking of contests, don’t forget you still have until the end of the month to register for PEAK's IndyCar Driving Experience with Danica Patrick sweepstakes. Or more accurately, “...Danica Patrick as The Beaver" sweepstakes.

    Not a comment on this post...just wanted to chime in with a Happy Birthday! (Feb 8, for those who didn't spy it on MySpace or Facebook. And Pressdog's was Feb 7 - how cool is that?)

    Hope you have a great day!
