Dale Earnhardt Jr: 6 Days to Race Day and the AMP Energy Contest. UPDATE

If you’re a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan, then it’s been an interesting last couple of weeks from the highs of Dale Jr. finishing 2nd in the Daytona 500 to a low of Dale Jr. going out early at the Auto Club 500 in California. But first I was wondering if anybody has had a chance to watch Dale Earnhardt Jr.: 6 Days to Race Day on DVD? The DVD only comes in specially marked packages of AMP Energy 4-packs.

If you haven’t, the DVD details 6 days to race day, 96 hours where the team takes the #88 AMP Energy/National Guard Chevrolet Impala SS from in this case a somewhat wrecked racecar to a brand new racecar. From tear down to assemble and did you know that the check list is 250 items on it…

The DVD also shows the unveiling of the new 2010 AMP Energy/National Guard Chevrolet paint scheme which we’ve all seen on track and it looks good, but at the same time gives a new lease on the #88 team. At the same time, the DVD goes behind the senses at the Together: The Hendrick Motorsports Story movie premiere and even Dale Jr. racing go karts in his back yard. Basically if you have seen Joe Gibbs Racing: Race to Daytona, its similar to that series, but smaller and no commercials.

UPDATE: This contest has ended, I have mailed out all of the prizes to the winners and thank you to everyone that entered.

Second, what would a preview of a DVD be without an AMP Energy Contest. Thanks to the PR people for Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s AMP sponsorship, I’m giving away some AMP swag that I just got in.
